Polly Miranda Rogers, 20, left this earthly world behind on May 1, 2018, to join her Savior in heaven. While our years with her were cut much too short, they were filled with more joy than we could have ever imagined. Polly was a bright light with a generous spirit, a genuine smile and a happy heart. Adored by all who had the honor of knowing her, Polly loved fiercely in return. Her world revolved around her family and friends, of whom there were many. It's easy to see why; Polly's easygoing personality, sense of humor and readiness for adventure made her a delight to be around. She was creative and kind, selfless and sincere, witty and welcoming, beautiful and brave.
A native Charlottean, Polly attended Sharon Elementary, Carmel Middle and Myers Park High. Her enthusiastic spirit and contagious energy served Polly well in her passion for gymnastics and swim team as a child, and for cheerleading at Carmel and Myers Park. Polly was a treasured member of St. John's Episcopal Church where she was an active presence in the youth group, a ringer in the hand bell choir, and a faithful, humble servant in mission work. Polly spent summers at Camp Harrison, sharing her gifts of compassion and leadership with her fellow campers. A sophomore at UNC Charlotte, Polly studied special education and was a sister of Zeta Tau Alpha.
Polly is survived by her loving parents, Tim and Lucy Rogers; her twin brother, Will Rogers; her older brother, Patrick Rogers; her paternal grandparents, Betty Ann Rogers of Raleigh, and Rich Rogers of Florence, S.C.; her maternal grandmother Polly Anderson of Atlanta; a multitude of aunts and uncles; dozens of cousins; and countless friends. Etc.
A service to celebrate Polly's life will be held 2:00 p.m. Monday May 7th, 2018 at St. John's Episcopal Church 1623 Carmel Rd. Charlotte, NC 28226 with the Rev. Dr. Robert Voyle officiating. The family will receive friends following the service at the Church. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Polly's name to St. John's Episcopal Church.
Our hearts are broken, but we take peace in knowing that Polly's spirit surrounds us, comfort in the memories that we cherish in our hearts, and hope in the promise that we will see our sweet girl again.
