Helen L. Ogden, passed away on Wednesday, January 25, 2017. Helen was born in Kansas City, Kansas, to Boyd and Leona Connell. She attended Washington High School and then went to work for the Katz Drug Stores. She married Vernon L. Ogden on August 18th, 1940 and celebrated 60 years of marriage before Vern passed away in 2000. Following her years as a stay at home mother she went to work at The Jones Store Co. in Metro North Mall which allowed her to travel the globe by plane and cruise ship. Her work at this particular store also allowed the filling of many clothes closets in her home, much to the dismay of her husband.
Helen is survived by many friends at Riverstone Retirement Community, her son, Stephen (Janet) Ogden, daughter, Christie (Scott) Dalman, daughter-in-law, Rita Ogden, brothers Ted (Barbara) Connell, and Lee (Jo) Connell. She also leaves two granddaughters, Amy (Shawn) Perkins, and Katie (Steve) Merriman, and nine great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband, Vern, and 2 sons, Barie and Vernon II.
A memorial service will be held at Riverstone Retirement Community on Saturday, January the 28th at 11:00am. In lieu of flowers please make a donation to the Parkville Animal Shelter, KC Pet Project, or the Kansas City Rescue Mission. On line condolences may be left at Meyersfuneralchapel.com.
