Jul. 8, 1927 - Mar. 3, 2013
Mrs. Suzanne Rogers, 85, passed away peacefully on March 3, 2013 after a short term battle with cancer, since being diagnosed in December, 2012.
She was born July 8, 1927 in Michigan City, Indiana, the daughter of Raymond N. and Eunice Zeek.
Suzanne was extremely active throughout her life, enjoyed sports, and made many "Golfing and Bridge playing buddies." Never a day went by that she didn't have her doors open to her family and friends, not to mention a shoulder to lean on when her two boys confided in her weekly. Suzanne was a wonderful cook and often entertained her husband's business clients in her earlier years in their home. Throughout her husband's career, she enjoyed traveling extensively with him. She was an extremely warm and giving person.
She will be dearly missed by her sons Jeffrey (Jackie) with five grandchildren of Seattle, Washington and Steve (Linda) Rogers of Canfield, Ohio and a beloved niece and caregiver, Cynthia Lawless of Sarasota.
Suzanne was preceded in death by her husband, Worthy, who passed away January 12, 2009 and a sister, Barbara, of Sarasota who passed away in 2001.
She was a member of Pine Shores Presbyterian Church in Sarasota.
A service in her honor will take place April 8th at 11:00 AM at Pine Shores Presbyterian Church, 6135 Beechwood Ave., Sarasota, FL. A light luncheon will follow after the service at the church.
Arrangements are entrusted to Toale Brothers Funeral Home and Crematory, Sarasota.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Pine Shores Presbyterian Church Memorial Fund or Tidewell Hospice, 5955 Rand Blvd., Sarasota, Florida, 34238.
