Sandpoint Mourns Death Of Mayor

Sandpoint Mayor Marsha Ogilvie is being remembered as a champion for children in crisis and a strong civic booster. Ogilvie, 64, died Wednesday morning. She had battled lung cancer over the past year. “Marsha was a blessing to all who knew her, and the vision she had for Sandpoint and the impact she made in this town was profound,” said her close friend Patty Hutchens. City Council President Carrie Logan will fill in as interim mayor of the resort city on the shore of Lake Pend Oreille. “The loss of Mayor Ogilvie will leave an irreplaceable void in the heart of our community,” Logan said in a news release. “She tirelessly dedicated herself to protecting the most vulnerable and celebrating the generosity of the many volunteers who give of themselves in and around Sandpoint”/Scott Maben, SR.
