"She loved everyone," said her daughter, Barbara Ann Poe of Columbia. "She loved to cook for and feed people. Everybody was welcome at her table."
While raising Poe, Rogers, and two other children, Mrs. Rogers also worked in the kitchen of Audrain Medical Center in Mexico, where she was a head salad maker.
She retired to care for her husband, Thomas Marion Rogers, after he retired due to an illness. In her late 70s, she returned briefly to work at the Missouri Veterans Home in Mexico, where she worked in the kitchen as, appropriately enough, a cook. But her own health was failing, and Mrs. Rogers realized she'd have to retire again. The decision to leave, even after a lifetime of work, brought tears, not relief.
"She just cried," Poe said. Mrs. Rogers, born to Thomas A. and Charlotte Bartelmeu Johnson in Neosho, March 8, 1916, had grown up in a large family in a rural area during the Depression. During that time, Poe said, Mrs. Rogers acquired her work ethic, compassion and, in Poe's words, a tendency "to never sit down." It was hard, Poe said, for her to leave work and a chance to care for other people behind.
Mrs. Rogers passed on that same work ethic, energy and generosity to her five children, Poe noted. "We were taught to be independent," she said. "We were also taught that we were loved."
She is survived by Poe, and her three sons, Robert Rogers, James Henry Rogers of Hallsville and Jerry Rogers of Mexico. Mrs. Rogers is also survived by a stepson, Gene Rogers of Golden, Colo.; a brother, Leo Johnson of Granby, Mo.; 11 grandchildren; and 18 great- grandchildren.
