Many years ago I had the priviledge of working with Sharon Ogden when she was a Nutrition Aide for Crawford County Cooperative Extension Service. She was a thoughtful, sincere person interested in the welfare of her clients. She had a gentle, warm nature and a wonderful sense of humor. I read with sorrow the news of her passing. To her family, I wish to extend sincere condolences. She was a lovely person.

It is with sadness that I learnt of the passing of our beloved Sister Ogden.
An extremely pleasant smile is now lost to us. I will miss her quiet, calm but yet strong personality. She always made me feel welcome at St. Johns.
May the God of all comfort, comfort you and make you strong to help others in their time of grief.
From Rev. Patrick Dublin and his wife Yvette.
May her soul rest in peace.
