Roach, Patricia - Columbia  
Patricia Lawrence Roach COLUMBIA - Patricia Lawrence Roach, 90, passed away peacefully on November 20, 2014, at Palmetto Baptist Hospital. She had been surrounded by her family throughout the week. Patty was born in Anamosa, Iowa, the daughter of Lloyd Dean and Catherine Lawrence and the sister of Cappy, whom she adored and idolized throughout her life. She grew up in Columbia and graduated from the University of South Carolina with majors in biology and chemistry. At USC, she served as a member of the cheerleading squad, a sister in Kappa Delta sorority and was crowned Miss Columbia. She was married to Dr. Daniel Michael Roach and they had six children: Pamela Cakora (Michael) of Columbia, Patricia Polk (Jim) of Greensboro, Daniel Michael Roach, Junior (Sharon) of Columbia, Florence Carter (Fred) of Florence, Gigi Farmer (George) of Greenville, and Laura Gaines (Will) of Charlotte. At the time of her death, she had ten grandchildren: Patricia Cakora, Graham Cakora (deceased), Brad Polk, Catherine Roach, Virginia Roach, Luke Carter, Marie Farmer, Gray Gaines, Rob Gaines, and Whit Gaines. Patty was an intellectually vibrant woman, imbued with a strong sense of independence and self-reliance. She was a loving, affectionate mother and grandmother. She devoted much of her life to raising and nurturing her family, and the children and grandchildren cherished every opportunity to spend time with her. An avid reader, her literary interests were broad and extensive. She read not simply for entertainment but to enhance her knowledge and cultivate her appreciation for new ideas. She was also a consummate bridge player, competing with enthusiasm well into her eighties and enjoying every game, more often for the companionship than the competition. Patty was a strong proponent of education and encouraged each of her children to acquire college degrees. All of them did, sustained by her advocacy and support. Ever the family matriarch, she was also determined that her entire family acquire an appreciation for the heritage of the Lawrence and Roach families. She enjoyed reminiscing about this extended family in her later years- always with wit, affection, and adulation. Patty leaves a legacy characterized by dignity, generosity and love, and she raised children and grandchildren who adored her for instilling those virtues in each of them. The family is deeply appreciative of those who provided care and assistance to Patty in the last years of her life: her loving grandson Graham Cakora, Agape, Atria, Heartland, and Palmetto Baptist and its Hospice Care. She was a member of Trinity Episcopal Cathedral. A memorial service will be held in the sanctuary at 2:00pm on Monday, November 24, 2014. In lieu of flowers, contributions should be made to the Oliver Gospel Mission. Expressions of sympathy may be left at www.southcarolinacremation.com .

Rogers, Evelyn - Charlotte  
Evelyn Raybon Rogers CHARLOTTE - Mrs. Rogers, 98, entered into the arms of God on Monday, November 24, 2014, from the place she most cherished - her home. She was born in Gaston County on October 9, 1916 as one of nine children to the late and beloved John Henry and Emma Julia Raybon. Mrs. Rogers was the wife and devoted soul mate of the late Reverend Wade G. Rogers. They were married for 69 years prior to his passing in 2010. She was also predeceased by her son, Glenn L. Rogers, along with five sisters and two brothers. Mrs. Rogers is survived by two sons, Roy Keith Rogers and Timothy A. Rogers (Jonnie) along with daughter-in-law, Patricia Rogers Smith. She is also survived by her three precious grandchildren; Larry Rogers, Scott Rogers and Brooke Rogers, all of Charlotte; and her sister, Zoe Setzer of Kannapolis. A proud graduate of Belmont High School, Class of 1933, Mrs. Rogers went on to be employed by Ivey's Department Store over the course of three decades prior to retiring in 1981. While a devoted minister's wife, mother and employee, she always possessed and demonstrated a profound faith and love for God, a love for anyone and everyone that came her way and a profound work ethic. Devoted to service for others, especially her family, Mrs. Rogers sacrificed many of her own ambitions and material gains so that others may enjoy God's many blessings. She loved her church, to read her Bible, read her paper, maintain the church prayer chain, fellowship with family and friends, tell others how proud she was of them, and watch her family and their friends fight for the last helping of her delicious cooking - especially her chocolate cakes. Her quick wit and keen sense of humor will be missed by everyone who knew her. Mrs. Rogers exemplified love, faith, patience, gentleness, gratefulness, courage, humility, acceptance and endurance. She prayed for everyone she knew daily and reminded her family that no matter how hard things may be, have faith in God, get back up, and move forward. Whenever her family's world would be in chaos, it was her who provided the calm. She endured a number of tragedies in her family that would have broken most people. However, she always believed in holding on to God and reminded her family that something greater awaits us. In lieu of flowers please send contributions to Moore's Chapel United Methodist Church, 10601 Moore's Chapel Rd., Charlotte, NC 28214. The family would like to thank the staff and members of Moore's Chapel for the love and care they provided their mother over these many years. The family would also like to thank her caregivers, Kathy, Renee and Yvonne, for the devoted love, attention, care and patience that they provided during the most challenging of times. They want you to know that their mother and grandmother loved you and cared deeply for you. As well, the family wishes to thank the physicians and staff of Northwest Family Physicians along with the Charlotte Fire Department, especially "her boys" at Station 21, for the devoted service and compassion that was provided over the years. A Worship and Celebration of Life Service will be held at 1:00 P.M. on Saturday, November 29, 2014, at Moore's Chapel United Methodist Church. Her body will lay in state 30 minutes prior to the service. Rev. Holly Evensen, Rev. Ron Perry and Rev. Chris Westmoreland will be officiating with Christian Burial in the church cemetery. The family will receive friends immediately following in the fellowship hall. Arrangements are in the care of Heritage Funeral Home, Indian Trail Chapel.
