Patrician Anne Kenan Ogden Dimon: September 11, 1937- October 22, 2023. Our loving mom passed away after a short illness at St. Joseph's Hospital, Syracuse, NY on October 22nd. She may not have planned to be a mother as young as she did, but she ended up being everyone’s “Ma”. She was a single parent of six and raised five on her own. Our house was always full of music, and food cooked together. If you knew her, you would know how much she loved family.
She loved her lake (Ontario) and would often take us to the different beaches for picnics she had gone to as a child growing up in North Rose. She loved to read and had a passion for British History, and Science Fiction/Fantasy books. She loved animals and even rehabilitated several raccoons. She left behind three beloved cats who she worried about right until the end. We reassured her they would be safe and that seemed to ease her mind. She liked to sew, knit and would work all year to fill a bin full of slippers, mittens, and hats of all sizes for the family at Christmas. It was always a highlight of the day. Christmas and Thanksgiving were spent with the whole family often crammed into her tiny kitchen to eat, visit and laugh. She loved camping and took nine of her grandkids every year to Brennan’s Beach where she had a seasonal site. The grandkids, now grown, continue to carry on the cousin campouts that she started even though they are scattered all over the country. She was the glue that held us together. She taught us the importance of family. She was funny and enjoyed laughing with us. Her grandkids will remember her as the gramma who not only took them camping, but played video games with them and made “sink potatoes” to be eaten with her three pronged forks. She had a way of making you feel special. If she found out you liked lima beans, or black cherry soda, or apples, she would make sure she had some in her pantry when you visited. She volunteered to help out at Girl Scout campouts with her granddaughters and was the “Cool Gran” who everyone loved. It’s hard to condense a life into a few lines, but what you need to know about our mom is she loved her family and was loved in return. Words cannot express how much she will be missed. She requested that we did not have a funeral or calling hours. She will be cremated and her ashes will be carried by her family. She would love that.
There will be an Irish wake to celebrate her life for family and close friends to be determined at a later date.

Ogden, (Sandra) of South Carolina, Sean Bakke (Anita) of San Diego, California, and Diana L. (Ogden) Hildreth (William) of Jordan, NY. She is predeceased by her son Thomas R. Ogden.
