Mary Ogden was the mother of Stan Ogden and the paternal grandmother of Freda, Dudley, Tony and Sylvia Ogden.

Mary was a fairly strict woman, who stuck by her principles and kept her son in check. When he joined the army and married his sweetheart of six days, Hilda Crabtree, Hilda lived with widow Mary. When Mary found out Hilda was pregnant, Mary pampered to Hilda's every whim and fancy, and when Hilda and Stan found out that they had lost the baby, they didn't tell Mary. When Mary found out, she threw Hilda into the street, and the couple hunted for their own house, remaining on short terms with her.

Mary died before 1964, when the Ogden family moved into 13 Coronation Street.
