Anna Ruth Rogers Obituary
Rogers, Anna Ruth (Ruffie)
102 years and 7 months, of Belgium, Wisconsin passed away on 3/14/2013. Anna Ruth Rogers showered her family with love and encouragement that enabled them to surmount any number of challenges. She beamed with pride when speaking of her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and their many accomplishments. When she was ready to retire, she chose Sun City, AZ and lived there for many years. Anna moved to Mequon, WI in 2001 to be closer to her daughter Gloria, granddaughter Sherri and her great-granddaughter Ashley. Anna thought her greatest legacy was family. She was quick with a smile and her laughter was contagious. Self sacrificing and bold, Anna's children and grandchildren follow in her footsteps of independence and resiliency. Anna was also a lover of hand made quilts and she made the best biscuits and gravy that anyone could ever imagine. Most importantly, she lived her life to the fullest. The Matriarch of our family will be greatly missed. Surviving are her children Gloria Vidal (Cedar Grove, WI) and Jacqueline Carter (Alexandria, VA). Surviving grand-children from daughter Gloria - Deborah King (Glendale, AZ), Patricia Carroll (Phoenix, AZ) and Sherri Anderson (Wisconsin Dells, WI). Surviving grand-children from daughter Jacqueline - Robert Carter and Sherri Marquis, both living in Virginia. Surviving grand-children from daughter Betty are Timothy, Kimberly, Kenny, Karri and Kevin. In addition, there are great-grandchildren (Gloria) Aimee, Shane, Meagan, Madison, Savannah and Ashley, as well as great- great grand children Kiwi Yogi Basil, Cyler, Coco, Herculine and Evangeline. Surviving great-grandchildren (Jacqueline) are Dylan and Dean. Final arrangements have been provided by Eernisse Funeral Home in Belgium, Wisconsin. The family will be holding a private memorial service for Anna Ruth Rogers on Saturday March 30, 2013. In lieu of flowers you may make a contribution in Anna's name to the Arizona Humane Society.
