Anne Marie Ogg

Updated: Nov 30, 2023

Anne Marie Ogg was born on a hot Tuesday the 26th of July 1977. She was the “ours” in a “Yours, Mine and Ours” blended family, the caboose of six older kids. Her Mom, Jane, had two children, Randall and Monica, and her father, Robert, had four children, Robert (Bobbie), William (Willie), Richard (Rick), and Mary. Anne followed a few years later.

She grew up surrounded by the inevitable chaos—and love—of a household with so many enthusiastic participants—everyone wanted to “help” with the baby of the family! She graduated from Hoover High School in 1995.

Anne welcomed a beautiful son, Cody Robert, with his father, John Snedeker in September of 2001.

Wanting to work from home to be with Cody, Anne received a degree from Hamilton Business College and worked as a medical transcriptionist for several years.

She was a server at a number of the finest dining establishments in Des Moines and took great pride in being one of the best. This also gave her amazing insight into the local restaurants, and she always had the best recommendations.

Anne loved to cook and spent lots of time researching recipes and then making sure they were presented beautifully. She carried that research into everything she did, from working on her cars, to growing vegetables in her container garden.

She was practical but also very creative, writing poetry and making handmade gifts for others. She was definitely the artistic one in the family.

Anne leaves such a legacy of love: she fiercely loved her family, especially Cody. She lovingly cared for a menagerie of animals over the years. Anne was constantly helping others, even when she didn’t have a surplus of resources herself. She would do anything for you if she thought you needed it.

Anne’s father Robert passed away in 1993, and her older brothers Robert and William also passed before her, as well as Robbie, her nephew. She is survived by her mother, Jane, and her siblings Rick (Laurie), Mary (Paul), Monica (Dave), and Randall (Beatrice). Her many nieces and nephews will miss her: Heather, Amanda and Tabitha; Misty; Sophie and Bella; Charlotte; Ricky (Samantha), David (Cassie), Josh, Meshell, Lizz, Tim (Taylor), Hannah (Brad), Ruth, and Abi (and she was a Great Aunt to fourteen children).

The rest of us reluctantly go on without her.

Rest in peace, our dear Anne. We love you so much, always and forever.

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to a food pantry or animal shelter in her honor.

A celebration of Anne’s life is planned for January 2024.
