Jean (Ogden) Schmidt

She was a 1950 graduate of Columbia High School. Jean graduated from the University of Florida with a BA degree in 1954. She retired from the Digital Corporation in Atlanta, GA and worked for the Columbia County Library after returning to Lake City. After retirement, Jean enjoyed many interests. She was a Master Gardner, a fantastic cook, and avid reader. Jean had a soft heart for pets and was always willing to share her home. She was dedicated and generous aunt to her three nieces and 7 grandnieces and nephews who always looked forward to her sense of humor, pineapple casserole (except Aaron!), and her birthday cards. Jean is survived by her brother and sister-in-law, William R (Billy) and Joyce Ogden; her nieces, Annette Ogden Recavarren (Ed), Anita Ogden Edwards (David), and Amanda Ogden McLean (Matt); her grandnieces and nephews, Grace, Creighton, and Owen Recavarren, Adam and Aaron Edwards, and Heidi and Heather McLean; and cats, Sadie and Rosie.
