Delles Rae Cowley Ogden, 86, of Richfield, passed away April 2, 2018, in Monroe, just 16 days after the love of her life, Glen W Ogden. Delles was born March 29, 1932, in Richfield to Israel Abner and Ann Hawkes Cowley. She married Glen W Ogden, January 1, 1951, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

She and her husband served together as full-time missionaries in the Orlando Florida Temple Mission. One of her greatest joys was visiting temples all over the United States while traveling with her husband.

Delles was a long-time member of the Daughters of Utah Pioneers and loved serving in that organization. She also enjoyed sewing, cooking, singing, performing compassionate service and, most of all, being a mother to her four children. She was a homemaker and taught her children the value of love, family, and family traditions.
