June 23, 1940 - July 5, 2020
Marian Ogrodnick passed away peacefully July 5, 2020 with family present and she was surrounded with so much love. She fought a good fight but God saw her struggling and called her home. She was then able to get on her horse Eagle and ride into heaven, as that is how she said she would enter heaven's gates.
Marian was born June 23, 1940 and celebrated her 80th birthday in the RGH. She was predeceased by her parents Ken and Jean Lindsey, sister Margaret, husband Edward, and brother-in-law Duncan.
She is survived by her 5 children; Jeff (Stella), Nancy, Mark, Danny and Susan. Grandchildren; Michael (Jada), Chris, Randy, Holly and Nicky. Brother Bill (Betty) Lindsey; sister Lorna Cross, brother-in-law Gordon Jackson, as well as several nieces and nephews and two great grand children; Carter and Luke.
Marian grew up in the Fort Qu'Appelle area, attended Hughesville school and completed grade 12 in Fort Qu'Appelle. She graduated from the RGH as a RN in June 1961 and married Ed Ogrodnick August 1961.
She loved her career as a nurse and wore many hats from bedside nursing to Management. Her loyal friendship, her love of mentoring, mixed with her sharp wit and sense of humor are commonly shared memories amongst her friends. She loved the friends she made along life's way and was always grateful for each one of them.
Marian raised 5 children while she worked full-time. In her own words “ I love my kids and family, horseback riding, nursing, quilting, pets, babies, travel, eating out, good laughter and jokes.
Mom had a gift to love unconditionally, to never judge, forgive the worst and help anyway you can. She was and all of her family, grateful for everyone's prayers and loving messages.
Thank you to the staff of 3A Pasqua Hospital for providing Marian the ability to pass peacefully and with dignity.
Due to the COVID-19 gathering protocols, a private family service will be held.
Marian gave unconditionally, she gave from her heart and did not judge or ask questions. She always gave her best. In memory of her, give from the heart to whoever is in need.
