Longtime Geneva Resident Dies in West Hartford at 83

WEST HARTFORD, Conn. Mrs. Bertha Rogers of Philadelphia, Pa., a longtime resident of Geneva, died yesterday in a Hartford hospital. She had been in failing health. Mrs. Rogers, who was 82, was visiting her son, Anson H. Rogers [error wrong son], here when she became ill. She lived in Geneva on DeLancey Dr., and Lafayette St. more than 30 years. A heating engineer for a furnace company, Mr. [Roy] Rogers died 33 years ago [1927]. St. Peter's Episcopal Church was virtually her whole life.

Besides her son and daughter, she is survived by another daughter, Mrs. Ruth McElroy of Syracuse, wife of the managing editor of the Herald-Journal, and two sons, Anson H. of Newton, Mass., and Sheldon of Miami; a sister, Mrs. Beulah Gifford of San Francisco, nine grandchildren [Jacquelyn & Douglas LARES; Roberta, Judith, David & Elaine ROGERS; 3 unknown] and two great-grandchildren.
