Marceline Ogburn Print Comment Top of page

On Sept. 27, our Beloved Mother, Marceline Ogburn, passed away peacefully at home with her two sons, Butch and Jeff, and devoted caregiver, Carol Ann, at her side.

Mom was born Dec. 25, 1929 in Cross Lanes.

Welcoming her to Heaven were her husband, Jimmy; father and mother, Charles and Sybil Jefferies; and sister, Osba.

Mom was retired from the Kanawha County school system, having spent 25 wonderful years at Point Harmony Elementary. She made lifelong friends while there and upon retirement took numerous road trips and luncheons together.

She is survived by her sons, James "Butch" and Jeff Ogburn; cousins, Linda and husband, Robert Runk, Tina and husband, Rick Clements, and John Franklin; niece, Tonsi Powell; and a host of family and friends.

Jeff and Butch would like to give thanks and sincere appreciation to Dr. Jonathan Lilly and his staff at Dunbar Medical for two decades of truly outstanding care. We also want to give special recognition to Dr. Michael Robie, his nurse, Sheila, and all of the staff at Nitro Primary Care. Dr. Robie cared for our mother for the last two-plus years of her life. His level of expertise and compassion are unmatched. Our caregiver, Carol Ann Saunders, was Heaven sent; we will forever be grateful to have had her in our lives these last two years. The same is to be said about our in-home nurse, Julie, a great lady. We were blessed to have all of these wonderful people make this journey with us.

We lost our father in 1968. At that time Mom stepped up to the plate and raised, educated and instilled values in us. Hopefully we made her proud.

We love and miss her, but we know she is at peace in a better place. Boy, were we blessed to have her as our Mother.

A tribute to the life of Marceline will be 2 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 2, at Gatens-Harding Funeral Home Chapel with Pastor Mike Ramsey officiating. Burial will follow in Tyler Mountain Memory Gardens, Cross Lanes.

Betty Ann Stump Print Comment Top of page

It is with much sadness that we, the family of Betty Ann Stump, announce her passing at Hubbard Hospice House after a long, courageous fight with cancer on Sunday, Sept. 28, 2014.

She was born in Green Creek, Roane County, on July 26, 1934. She was the daughter of Ted and Gatha Edwards Coleman. After moving several times, the family settled in South Charleston.

Betty Ann was preceded in death by her parents; siblings, John Edwards, Emogene, Malcolm, Virginia Medley Munson, Keith and Kenneth; and her husband, Jack Stump.

Those left to mourn her passing include her son, Michael, who took wonderful care of her and was attentive to all her needs, and his wife, Misty, and granddaughters, Meghan and Madison. Her sister, Mary Lou Bennington, never left her side the last few weeks, and brother, Isaac "Ike" Coleman, and her many nieces and nephews who comforted her throughout her illness. Her family was so very important to her.

Betty Ann graduated from South Charleston High School in 1953 and began working at Salamies Women's Store, where she became acquainted with many customers and made many friends while developing an eye for fashion. She became the "go-to girl" for being outfitted in the latest designs. She later became a dental hygienist for Dr. Lake and her greatest passion was working in the dental clinic at Edison Elementary School, a position she held for several years.

Betty Ann married Jack Stump, a South Charleston police officer, in 1961. After her precious son was born, she began her most important job: a mother.

Michael and Betty Ann shared a love of VW Beetles. She was one of very few people who could get away with eyelashes on her headlamps! They suited her well. She kept an immaculate yard and garden. She was able to grow anything anywhere. The strict organization of all things in her home and dislike of the color purple were the basis of many jokes. Actually, we all wish we could be that organized.

Her father, Ted Coleman, was instrumental in the concept and construction of Coonskin Park, a source of pride for the family. Betty Ann cut the ribbon on opening day and to this day still has that ribbon.

Betty Ann was independent, feisty and never afraid to give her opinion, whether you wanted it or not. We all loved her for her strong spirit and love of life. She had many friends in her neighborhood and she wanted to thank all of them, especially Carol and Jack, her next-door neighbors, for all the grocery and pharmacy runs and taking care of her gardens when she no longer could. We thank Dr. Shah for all he did and her friend, Dr. Hayes, who she trusted deeply and had many laughs with.

Betty Ann wanted to give a special thank you to her cousin and great friend, Roger Shafer and his wife, Paula, who took care of her during this valiant fight. We also want to acknowledge her wonderful friend, Tim Maddox. Your love and care was greatly appreciated. She thought the world of you. Regardless of how bad the treatments made her feel, she never lost her sense of humor or her concern for everyone else. We will miss her beautiful smile and that certain twinkle in her eye, but we rejoice knowing she is free from pain and in the arms of our Lord. Knowing her, she is already enjoying His glorious gardens, but more than likely avoiding the purple flowers.

Graveside service will be 11 a.m. Wednesday at Sunset Memorial Park, South Charleston, led by her good friend, Chaplain Jim Burgess. Respecting her wishes, there will be no visitation or funeral. Good Shepherd Mortuary in South Charleston is handling the arrangements. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to Hubbard Hospice House.
