Meet Mary Osgood
Mary is almost a Denver native, having moved to Colorado in 1969. However, her roots are in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, a Milwaukee suburb. It was in high school in Wauwatosa where she first met Norm Plunkett and 50 years later they reconnected and ultimately married in 2004.
Mary’s primary love and passion is as a mother to her three daughters, Kris, Suzy, and Lynn. With a smile, she likes to tell each of them that they are her favorite. They are very blessed and grateful to have a close, loving, sometimes irreverent, laughter-filled relationship. Mary’s seven grandchildren refer to her fondly as Grammary which has at times morphed into Miracle Mary. Mary was an Educational Consultant for Jefferson County schools where she worked with students with learning disabilities. After her retirement she took on new interests.
Mary’s other passions were hiking with Butler’s Gulch a favorite, travel especially internationally, road trips with Norm in the US and internationally to Ireland and a Viking Danube River Cruise. She often traveled with her childhood best friend. Mary is known for her watercolor paintings which have been displayed at a First Plymouth Art show. Mary created her own business, OsgoodArt, and for many years, turned her paintings into notecards which were sold at various Denver locations including The Tattered Cover and The Denver Botanic Gardens gift shop. Mary also loves genealogy and has collaborated with her younger brother for many years on family research which they have lovingly documented for future generations.
Mary was active in First Plymouth ministry for many years, serving as chair of Worship and Arts, a member of Church Council, planning the Caring Award Luncheon and various other committees. She also sang tenor in the choir for many years, and loved La Foret and enjoyed community camp. Norm and Mary were married in the LaForet chapel.
