Mrs. Rogers worked for Proctor Silex before starting her years of service as a Firetower Operator for the North Carolina Forestry Service, where she worked for 25 years.  She also loved working for the Richmond Memorial Hospital in the dietary department, which fulfill her passion of making her way to people’s hearts, not just by cooking for them, but by simply loving them.

She loved her family and held then dear to her heart.  She was the happiest when her entire family was at her home and she was ensured they were full of chicken and dumplings and pig pickin’ cake.  She loved her church family.  If there was a church event or outing, you could count on Ann and Rayon being there and helping where they were needed.  She will be deeply missed by both her family and church family.

She was preceded in death by her parents, and sisters: Betty Lambert, Mary Ruth Bryant, and Etta Caddell. She was also preceded in death by brothers, Harden and Gene Mofield.
