Samantha Ogden
Des Moines

Samantha Ogden, 30, passed away October 11, 2020 at home.

Samantha was born June 5, 1990 in Des Moines, Iowa to Kevin Ogden and Tia Wright.

Samantha thoroughly enjoyed her previous jobs at the Animal Rescue League and Hy-Vee as it allowed her big heart and ability to always be willing to help people shine. She was a true soccer and softball fan and enjoyed watching her children play. Samantha liked listening to music and dancing but above all she cherished time spent with her children. She was a true definition of a diva in the sense that you would never find her without being “done up.” If her love of shoes didn’t catch your attention then her smile definitely would do the trick. She could always light up a room.

Samantha is survived by her grandmothers, Pamela Wright, Debbie Wright and Ginger Leo; mother, Tia Wright; father, Kevin Ogden; children, Avah, Alivia, Emalea, Aliona, and Easton; siblings, Taylor (Stephen Lavallee) Drake, Katie Wisecup, and Jake (Chrissy) Coady; numerous nieces and nephews; aunt, Amee (Steve Stoermer), Katy (Jerrod Long), and Kim Lemgruber; uncle, Rich (Lori Wright); and numerous family members and friends.

She was preceded in death by her grandpa, Richard Wright; grandpa, Jim Ogden; and father of Alivia, Kevin Underwood.

The family will greet friends Sunday, October 18, 2020 from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Hamilton’s Funeral Home, 605 Lyon Street.

Memorial contributions may be directed to the family in loving memory of Samantha.
