Florence Elizabeth Rogers Obituary
Florence Elizabeth Rogers February 9, 1947 - May 26, 2013 Florence raised her wonderful son Jason Rogers until his tragic death in 1988 at the age of 18. Jason was the love of her life and she missed him dearly every day for rest of her life. Florence was also preceded in death by her parents Alvin and Vivian Rogers. Florence is survived by her many friends who became a part of a huge family. She brought joy and love to everyone that came into her life. She had a great sense of humor, was positive and generous, as well as being one of the strongest and most courageous woman ever. Florence graduated from East Bakersfield High School before starting work for the county of Kern, California Department of Human Services. She worked for the county for 36 years beginning as Typist Clerk and retiring in 2005 as an Office Services Specialist. After retirement Florence became the world's biggest Trace Adkins fan and attended every concert that she could throughout the country. She would often get the "meet and greet" concert tickets and blessed Trace many times with her presence. Whether she was hanging around the house, attending county luncheons or important events, she always wore her Trace Adkins t-shirts. Her friends would like to thank the great staff at San Joaquin hospital for their incredible service during her stay. A viewing will be held on Friday, May 31, 2013 from 5-9 p.m. and the funeral services on Saturday, June 1, 2013 at 9 a.m. at Basham Funeral Care, 3312 Niles Street. Graveside services will immediately follow at Hillcrest Memorial Park, 9101 Kern Canyon Road. www.bakersfield.com/obits
