She was born in Lafayette, Ga on December 10, 1929 and was the youngest of 9 children born to James Walker Free and wife Molly. The Free's also lived in Albertville, AL for a number of years before settling in Birmingham. She was a devoted homemaker and loved her husband and children always putting their needs ahead of hers.
The Ogle's attended First Baptist Church of Center Point for over 50 years and were active in choir, Sunday School and served on many committees through out the years. They ensured that their children were raised around biblical teachings and did their best to have their children in church on a regular basis.
The family would like to thank doctors John and Stacy Davis, Grandview Medical Center and Peggy Lowe as their primary care giver for their service to our parents in their later years.
