Prof. Donald Ogden, longtime chair of the music department of Grace College, Winona Lake, Indiana, and minister of music at the Winona Lake Grace Brethren church, was married this afternoon to a longtime friend, Ethelee Jones, in the Fireside Room of the Winona Lake church, followed by an open reception.
Ogden’s first wife, Wanita, died in 2006 and Ethelee’s husband recently passed away, as well. The bride many years ago worked at Rodeheaver Hall-Mack Music Publishing Company, which was headquartered in the Westminster Hotel in Winona Lake. Her previous husband was a traveling evangelist and pastor.
Participating in the ceremony were Ogden’s three children, Dianne, Kathy, and Ron, along with several of the grandchildren. Ogden’s brother, Russ, performed the ceremony. The couple will live in Ogden’s home at Lamppost Manor in Winona Lake.
