Shelva Jean Ogden
September 22, 1940 – December 17, 2018
Shelva Jean Hutchins Chapman Ogden, was sweetly reunited with her Heavenly Father, family and friends on December 17, 2018.
Mama was the final of five precious lives born to Maurice & Hazel Hutchins, on September 22, 1940, in Prince Frederick, Maryland. Her beloved parents, brothers and sisters, Eileen Matteson, Wilmer Hutchins, Dolores Hutchins (Cushie), Chester Hutchins (Prettyboy), are finally rejoicing together, once again.
Shelva Jean Hutchins graduated from Southern High School in 1958. With truly great anticipation, she adored and married, Charles W. Chapman, but far too soon for all of us, he went home to his Heavenly Father (1970). Their love blessed them with four children, Patricia Dowell, Duane Chapman, Theresa Pirner and Sheila Childers. Mama often and joyfully celebrated the life of each of her 8 dearly loved grandchildren, Kristi Pavis, Daren Pirner, Charles (Bunky) Thomas, III, Jenalyn Ferdig Daniel Ferdig, Gregory Pirner, Jeana Ferdig, Sarah Weems & Susan Childers and all 7 of her greatgrandchildren were the final flowers in her bouquet; Dylan Chapman, Caleb Simmons, Jayla Morita, Everett Pirner, Ethan Pavis, Teraya Johnson and Nathan Pavis. She was predeceased in 1985 by her granddaughter, Jenalyn Ferdig.
Page Ogden married Shelva and for the past 46 years, they made their home and life together in Western Shores Estates, Port Republic Maryland. Page showed great courage, lending assistance to Mama raising four children and for this, he will always be loved and respected.
We could tell you of her many accomplishments, how loved and greatly enjoyed her company was by everyone that had the pleasure of knowing her, and how downright funny she could be because she loved to laugh, but nothing she owned, no place she went and not one thing she did was more important to her than her furry companion, Sully and the exceeding blessing of her family, except Jesus (of course). Her love for Jesus exceeded all, as she positively knew and trusted Him as her All In All and would be so happy to know that you have done the same!
Our hearts and lives will not be the same without her. Till then, sweet Mama, till then.
The family will receive friends on Friday December 21, 2018 from 2-4 and 6-8 PM at the Rausch Funeral Home, 4405 Broomes Island Road, Port Republic, Maryland Republic, MD. A funeral service will be held on Saturday December 22, 2018, 11 AM at Full Gospel Assembly of God Church in Prince Frederick, Maryland. Interment will follow in Asbury Cemetery, Barstow, MD
