Meldean Joe (Carlson) Boelter was born March 11, 1943, to Walter and Helen (Clark) Carlson in Neligh. She attended grade school in Neligh. The family then moved to Norfolk, where she attended Norfolk Senior High, graduating in 1961. Meldean was employed as a secretary for Deaf Missions and was also the cheerleader sponsor for Nebraska Christian College. She was a member of First Christian Church and a Sunday school teacher.
In 1973, she adopted her beloved daughter, Kinsy Joe (Boelter) DeBolt, when she was 3 days old. They lived in Beatrice before finally returning to Norfolk.
Meldean loved her family and friends, her cats and the staff at Brookestone. She had beautiful dimples and an infectious smile that could light up a room. She was also an avid singer and would perform with her sisters at church functions.
Survivors include her daughter, Kinsy (Jacob) DeBolt; grandson, Matthew White; granddaughter, Carlyn Amelia DeBolt; great-grandson Carter Lewis Tolbert, all of the Ottawa, Kansas, area; sisters Dixie (Lowell) Burkum of Council Bluffs, Iowa, Virginia (Jerry) Miller of Norfolk; and many nieces and nephews and their families.
She was preceded in death by parents, Walter and Helen; sister, Betty (Dwight) Lincoln; and brother-in-law Jerry Miller.
