Carlene was born on May 6, 1921, and lived in the Quincy area all her life. She was a secretary for a local insurance agent after high school, where she worked until her retirement in the mid 1990's.

Carlene for many years faithfully purchased girls' clothing for the annual Dress An Angel project. She would carefully inventory the leftover clothing and record it in a notebook so we knew what we had to purchase for the next year. Her contributions to the Quincy Ladies Salvation auxiliary were very appreciated. She has been missed but not forgotten. Rest in peace dear lady. Vicki Biswell

Prayers for Carlene and family. My parents were Grant and Betty Disselhorst. My Dad' s parents were John and Laura Bangert Disselhorst. So my grandmother was a sister to Carlene's mother. I actually have a beautiful large photo of Laura, Amanda and George Bangert when they were small children.
My husband Donald Mowen is buried at Greenmount along with my Uncle Garner and Uncle Lloyd Disselhorst and other family members.
I have so many wonderful memories of family gatherings.
Connie Disselhorst Mowen and children Kathy, Dean, Douglas Mowen and Karen Mowen Voss.
