Patricia Ann Rogers, "Ann," was born on Aug. 23, 1947, in Portland, Ore., and passed at home in Wasilla, Alaska, to be with the Lord on Dec. 16, 2017. She moved to Metlakatla, Alaska, with her husband, Jimmie Rogers, and her three daughters in 1972. Jim's carpentry work took them to various places in Alaska, finally settling in Juneau, where Ann worked in banking before beginning her career in corrections as a Corrections Officer at Lemon Creek. Ann and Jim then moved to Wasilla in 1991. Ann worked at Cook Inlet Pretrial in Anchorage and later at Point MacKenzie Correctional Farm and was very proud to be part of the community there. After retiring from the State of Alaska, she continued to live at home in Wasilla.
Ann worked hard to take care of her family and make sure they never needed anything. She is very proud of her daughters, their successes, and to have called them all her friends.
Through her life she loved roller skating and playing volleyball and softball, as well as square dancing. Ann loved to host family gatherings (Christmas Eve was her favorite), riding four-wheelers and playing triominos. She was a huge fan and supporter of the Wasilla Avalanche and Anchorage Aces hockey teams and rarely missed a game.
She supported many causes including St. Jude Children's Hospital and Kenneth Copeland ministries; her favorite was participating in Jerry Lewis Labor Day Telethons. Ann always had a helping hand and open door to anyone needing it, especially during the holidays.
Ann was preceded in death by her husband, Jimmie Rogers; and her sister, Terri Cloyes. She is survived by her daughters: Susan Rogers, Michele Coker, Staci Chapman and Michele Carlile. She is survived by her 12 grandchildren and eight, soon to be nine, great-grandchildren.
Ann gave her life over to Jesus Christ and is with him now.
We will miss her friendship, encouragement and her fearless, spunky attitude that always included a willingness to say whatever comes to mind.
