Obituary

Mary DeLoney Ogden, 88, died peacefully at her Austin home on July 17, 2017. She is preceded in death by her husband, Robert L. Ogden, and her parents, Albert and Jeannette DeLoney of Austin. Mrs. Ogden's survivors include her children, Susan Ogden and Steven Ogden; her daughter-in-law, Laurie Scheh-Ogden; and her grandchildren, James LaRoux, Reese LaRoux, Lucas Ogden, Andrew Ogden and James Osborn.

Mrs. Ogden was born in Dallas, Texas, on November 9, 1928, and lived most of her life in Austin. She graduated from Stephen F. Austin High School, where she was valedictorian of her class. She graduated from "The University" and then attended UT Law School. She soon thereafter began following in her father's footsteps by investing in and developing properties in core Austin neighborhoods. After marrying Bob Ogden in 1961, she continued her passionate pursuit of real estate acquisition. Together, she and Bob built many iconic restaurants and bars in downtown Austin.

She was a powerhouse in Austin's real-estate community; however, she was also an avid reader, gardener and animal-lover. She loved dancing at The Depot on Friday nights and attending church on Sundays. She was a major contributor to St. Francis Anglican Church, even purchasing the church's property (more than once) and donating it to the congregation. Mary was a fighter in every sense of the word, but her driving force was her profound love for her husband and her children. Thanks, Mom, for everything. We love you.

A visitation will be held from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., Friday, July 21, at Weed-Corley-Fish Funeral Home, 3125 North Lamar. Funeral services will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, July 22, at St. Philip's Anglican Church, 1408 W. 9th Street. Burial will follow at Austin Memorial Park.
