Mary Lou Ogle Scholarship for the Study of Communications

Mary Lou Ogle’s life focused on helping others. For 25 years she worked as a registered nurse taking care of patients. Then in 1979 following her brother’s successful election as MP for Saskatoon-East, Mary Lou relocated to Saskatoon to work at his Saskatoon constituency office. Once her brother’s health began to fail, Mary Lou became his primary caregiver, returning to her nursing background. Throughout her life her caring and dedication to others was evident in her tireless volunteering with organizations such as the Mendel Art Gallery, the Saskatoon Symphony, the Saskatoon Community Foundation, the Canadian Club, her parish St. Paul’s Cathedral, Saskatoon city Hospital and in pastoral care. Her volunteer achievements were recognized recently by Volunteer Saskatoon for her long service to the Arts.  After researching The Saskatoon Foundation, she discovered she genuinely believed in its philosophy of improving quality of life for all. Mary Lou’s bequest will fund a scholarship for a young man or woman from Saskatchewan to study communications at a Saskatchewan post-secondary institution.
