The Chad Osgood Family Fund

Angie Osgood and Chad Osgood of Mindoro,WI were married for 18 years. Chad was blessed with six beautiful daughters: Atlanta, Jesse and Mercedes are now grown.  The three youngest Justice (18), Olympia (14) and Eva (10) live in Mindoro with their mother, Angie. Angie’s entire world changed on September 24, 2021 when Chad unexpectedly passed away.  Angie and all Chad’s girls are devastated. Chad, like many, thought he’d have a lot more time in this world and unfortunately didn’t have a life insurance policy on himself. Angie is now faced with supporting her girls on her own. Angie had been a stay at home mom, but fortunately just graduated from college this spring and started her 1st teaching job a few weeks ago. In addition to being the breadwinner, she’ll need to start paying on her student loans soon.  Angie had health coverage for the family through her teaching job, but all of Chad’s medical care happened in Iowa, which is out of network for her insurance; she’ll have about $8,000 of medical bills coming for the out of network deductibles and out of pocket expenses.  Traveling back and forth 3-4 hours each way to be by Chad’s side resulted in several hundred dollars of gas and hotel expenses.  And there will likely be other unexpected bills that arrive in the coming weeks. 

The Chad Osgood Family Fund has been established to help Angie get her on her feet as she starts on her journey without Chad.  Funds will be used to pay for Chad's out of network medical expenses, Angie's Iowa travel expenses, and living expenses for the girls. If you’d like to make a donation to support Angie and her girls, donations can be made on-line via the Donatezilla platform or at Union State Bank in West Salem.   Please continue to keep Chad’s entire family in your thoughts and prayers
