OBITUARY - Stephen A. Rogers

Stephen A. Rogers was born at Maryville, Tenn., November 30, 1860, where he grew to manhood. Later he moved to Illinois, where he was united in marriage to Lady Katherine Tedrow at Carrollton, Illinois, on August 7, 1884. The family moved to Colorado in 1906, where he resided until 1918, when they came to Wyoming where he has since made his home. His death occurred June 25, 1929, at 3:00 p.m., aged 68 years, 6 months and 25 days. Two daughters preceded him in death. The wife and two daughters, Mrs. Robert Burns and Mrs. Frank Swisher, and other relatives, are left to mourn the death of a loving husband and father.

I may not know the reason why
Dark clouds so often veil the sky,
But tho' my sea be smooth or rough,
The Lord knows why, and that's enough.

I may not know why death should come
To take the dear ones from my home,
But tho mine eyes, with tears be dim,
The Lord knows why--I'll trust in Him.

So, tho I may not understand
The 1eadings of my Father's Hand,
I know to all, He has the key,
He understands each mystery.

Our heartfelt thanks are extended to the many friends and neighbors for the words of sympathy and acts of kindness following the death of our beloved husband, father and brother. Also for the very many beautiful flowers.

Mrs. Rogers, Wife,
Mr. and Mrs. Robt. Burns,
Mr. and Mrs. Frank Swisher,
Margaret Wertenberger, Sister
