Mrs. F.R. Rogers Dies Following Short Sickness


Funeral Services Will be Held at the Home Saturday Morning; interment in Lusk Cemetery

The will of the Master has once more been executed in our midst, and with unsuspecting suddenness, Mrs. Hazel Gladys Rogers was called to the Great Beyond at the age of 35 years, 10 months and 26 days. Death occurred at 2:45 o'clock Tuesday morning, January 13, following an illness which lasted but one week.

Mrs. Rogers was taken suddenly ill while at the drug store last Tuesday evening and was taken to her home. On Thursday evening it was found that peritonitis had set in and although a high fever had developed , her condition was not considered critical until Monday, when Dr. L.W. Storey of Douglas was called in consultation. Little hope was entertained for her recovery following the consultation.

When life was despaired of, her parents, living in Casper, were sent for  and William Delahoyde, making the drive to that place and back in record time returned just a few moments following her death.

Hazel Gladys Palmer was born in Finely, O., February 18, 1889. While but a small child her family moved to Chicago, Ill., where she was reared to womanhood.

She was united in wedlock to Foster R. Rogers in Chicago, on May 12, 1910. It was in that year, while on their honeymoon, that the couple located in Laramie, Wyoming, where Mr. Rogers engaged in the drug business. To this union, while residing in Laramie, were born four children.

In 1918 the family moved the Rogers Drug Co. Their residence has been in Lusk since.

Mrs. Rogers was a devoted wife and a loving mother, and besides the family leaves a host of friends who will mourn her passing. During the past year she assisted in the drug store and made many new friends. She was a member of the Lioness club of Lusk and was admired and loved by all who knew her.

She is survived by her husband, Foster R. Rogers; three daughters, Mary Ethel, age 13, Martha Belle, age 10; Frances Ann, age 9; and one son, Royal, age 8 years; her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Royal Palmer of Casper, and one sister, Mrs. Vida Coleman of Los Angeles, who will arrive tomorrow (Friday) morning to attend the funeral.

Funeral arrangements are in charge of Austin, Elquest, Slack C., undertakers, and will be held at the residence at 10 o'clock Saturday morning January 17. Rev. W.G. Hooper will officiate and burial will be made in the Lusk cemetery.
