Marlene Sue Moseley was born June 27, 1937, to C. Erven and Anna (Fox) Moseley at Bethel Union, northeast of Broken Bow, Nebraska.  She graduated from Westerville High School in 1954.  After high school she earned a certificate from Kearney Teacher’s College that allowed her to teach the following fall at Westerville Grade School.

On July 16, 1957, she married Dean H. Kaelin at the Ansley Methodist Church.  She then taught in the Copsey School District for two more years.  Their first son, Gerald Scott was born in 1960 while they lived north of Westerville.  The family moved to Fremont where their second son, Gordon Lee was born in 1966 on her birthday!

Her calling was that she was an excellent daughter, wife, mother, and homemaker.  Although she would never admit it, she was a wonderful hostess and cook.  She loved sending and receiving greeting cards.

Organizations in which she was active were the Westerville and Ansley Methodist Churches, Ansley FFA Mothers, and she served on the Westerville Township Election Board for many years.  After Dean’s death, Marlene moved to Off Broadway in Broken Bow and lived there six years.
