The Rogers family became residents of Lusk in 1919 after selling the Van Tassell property, and in 1936 they purchased a ranch at Manville. Mr. Rogers died in 1940 and Mrs. Rogers remained on the Manville ranch until she retired in 1952 when she made permanent residence in her home at Lusk.

Mrs. Rogers was a member of St. Paul's Lutheran Church of Lusk, the Lutheran Woman's Missionary League, Lusk Woman's Club, Tumbleweed Extension Club, Hospital Auxiliary, and the Manville Homemakers Club.

Her parents, six sisters and three brothers died previously. She is survived by her two daughters, one sister, four grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren.
