Christina Marie Ogaard

May 4, 1973May 13, 2018

On Sunday, May 13th, 2018, Christina Marie Ogaard, mother, daughter, sister, and soon-to-be grandmother, passed away suddenly at the age of 45 years.

Christina was born on May 4th, 1973 to Ronald C. Ogaard and Shirlene Marie Hall in Salt Lake City, Utah. She will be forever remembered by her sons Austin (Randi) Snarr and Devin (Amanda) Ogaard. Christina will also be forever remembered by her siblings Brian (Jana), Ryan, and Cary, grandmothers Lucille Hall and Eudora Ogaard, as well as her numerous nieces, nephews, extended family and dear friends. She is preceded in death by parents Ron & Shirlene, grandfathers Norman and Clifford, uncles Mike and Scott, and cousin Christopher.

In her short time with us, Christina raised two amazing men, Devin and Austin. She was a homemaker for the majority of her adult life. In her early years, she enjoyed spending time at her father's furniture shop, Velvet Touch, and camping at Echo Resevoir. Growing up as a teen in the 80s she loved "the scene": pop and rock alike! During Christina's later life she used her time wisely: spending it with loved ones and her beloved cat Sassy.

A Viewing will be held Tuesday 05/22/2018 from 6:00 PM until 8:00 PM. Funeral Services will be held Wednesday 05/23/2018 starting at 10:00 AM.

Christina and I got close when she lived with Brian and I. Some of the most memorable times I had with her was when we would watch ghost stories on tv and take evp's out in the back yard. We couldn't wait to run back in the house to listen to what we had recorded. We could have stayed up all night some of those times just to see if we could have an actual experience. Christina had so many stories to tell about so many things that the time would just fly by. I learned a great deal about a lot of things from her that I would have never learned from anyone else. I am glad she will no longer have to deal with all her illnesses, but at the same time I will miss her. She can now have the freedom that she has wanted for so long. To the Ogaard Family, I am so sorry for your loss. You are all in my prayers. I hope you can find some peace at this very hard time. I miss you all!! Love always, Lori.

I remember taking her to rock concerts with my wife Shelly. Many times going backstage.
She was blond in those earlier years.
As she progressed she became a true lady. My heart is aching I'm in total shock!
Just know my love will always be there for you and your family.

Christina was my dearest closest friend. We had such a connection, a bond that I can only describe as spiritual. A hidden understanding of each other. We talked at length about all things spiritual. Healing rocks, god, nature ,destiny, life., and death and faith . Christina was spiritual and very giving. The most kind tender heart of anyone I 've known and the most beautiful eyes I've ever seen. I miss her so much. We talked at length almost every day. we talked about death after her parents passed. I know she is with them now. And so happy . The last few times we talked we spoke of a mystic man of the 1700s, who claimed to have been taken to the other side by God to learn about it there so we can be told. Those talks about his knowledge I will never forget and is something very close to my heart. I hold tight his words about the beauty and the complete un biased love and learning of the other side. I know she is around and is soo sooo happy. I love you christina . This not goodbye, it's see you later. ...Gina

Christina was in touch with the other side. She is there. I always was interested in psychic work and spirit world. She had wanted to go over her rocks and books. She was very strong minded woman. She is at home. We all will be. I want you to visit me Christina through a dream or your spirit. I will feel you. I know you are going through something in the spirit world and may you enjoy family that is there. I will hear or see you soon. We love you.
