Marisa Katherine Arballo Ogluin was born in Monticello, UT on January 30, 1983 to her proud parents, Ray and Fana Arballo.
She was greeted by her anxious siblings, big brother Ray and her sisters Christy and Gen.
From the beginning, she was the sparkle in her daddy’s eye. There wasn’t much she couldn’t get out of her daddy.
She had a special bond with her sister Gen Gen. She immediately had an undying bond with her and was super protective of her. And Gen loved her sister very, very much!
Marisa and her mom were not only mother and daughter; they were best friends! Their relationship was very strong.
She attended Monticello Elementary School and Monticello High School, where she graduated in 2001. It was through those years that she made several lifetime friends.
Her dearest and closest friend was Terri Bryant McQueen. They grew to be sisters.
She also has several cousins who became her best friends and sisters as well.
After she graduated, she earned her Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA), but after taking care of her sick Grandpa, she decided on a career change.
That was when she went to work at Blue Mountain Meats. She worked there for eleven years.
Through all these years, they became family to Marisa. They were so good to her and she loved them.
A special moment and turning point in Marisa’s life was when she brought Chance to live with her. She made sure he went to school and attended all of his school activities.
And when Chance graduated, so did Marisa. They built an unbreakable bond.
Marisa also shared a very special bond with all her aunties and uncles. She loved each and every one of them.
Family was everything to Marisa. Family was her life!
It was by fate that Marisa met Jon Ogluin. They instantly connected and soon after that, Jon would be her’s forever.
On July 30, 2016 Marisa and Jon were married. They shared this beautiful moment with all their family and friends.
Marisa had collected an army of loved ones and that day was proof of the love they shared for each other.
As they built their lives together, they received many blessings, including becoming close to Jon’s family.
One of the biggest blessings was the day Mateo was born. This little boy stole Marisa’s heart, as well as Jon’s. At that moment she became a Mom.
Marisa was forever grateful to Maria for sharing this sweet little boy who called Marisa mama.
She loved many additional babies, including Evelyn, Damian, Franko and more.
