Anna Pauline Cash Ogden
May 23, 1926 – October 6, 2021
With a heavy heart, the children of Anna Pauline Ogden “Polly” announce the death of their mother on Wednesday, October 6th, 2021 at the age of 95. We are reassured that she lived a full and loving life. She has touched many lives with her kindness and love for others.
Polly was born on May 23, 1926 in Danville Virginia to Joe Anna Wright Cash and Hubert Birch Cash. She lived in Lynchburg where she met the love of her life, Willie Allen Ogden “Bill”. They married on November 28, 1942, before Bill embarked on World War II. Together they worked for many years at Burch & Ogden Furniture and Appliance and were active members of the Emmanuel United Methodist Church.
They welcomed and loved their four children, Patricia Pauline Ogden Evans (John), Priscilla Jobe Shuler (Jack), WA Ogden Jr. (Angelia) and Paul Frederick Ogden (Angela Hope). Her grandchildren, John Septimus Evans (Penny), Tracy Shuler McGuire (John), Douglas Richey Jobe (Mary Ann), Michelle Shuler Caldwell (Drew), Christopher William Jobe (Kaarina), Ashley Elizabeth Ogden Acree (Brantley), Ethan Scott Hope -Ogden. They were special people in their lives, along with their twelve great-grandchildren, Jonathon Evans, Aeriel McGuire, John McGuire IV, Julia McGuire, Skyler Mang, Spencer Mang, Mikayla Jobe Middleton (Parker), Joanna Claire Jobe Whorley (Robert), Davis Jobe , Dalton Jobe, Wolfi Acree, and Cell Acree.
In the last challenging years of her life, she was loved and supported by Hilda McCray. She’s had a lot of “going home” conversations lately and now she’s arrived.
Her life will be celebrated on Monday, October 11, 2021 at 1 p.m. with a funeral service in the Amherst Cemetery, followed by a reception at the Emmanuel United Methodist Church.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be sent to Emmanuel United Methodist Church, PO Box 451 Amherst, Virginia 24521-0451.
