Rogers, Mary Elizabeth (Cone)
Beloved Weimer Lady Is Claimed by Death
On Tuesday of last week the poor tired spirit of Mrs. Mollie Rogers beloved lady of our city, succumbed to illness and was wafted to her Creator and Savior. The funeral took place Wednesday morning and was largely attended. Funeral services were conducted by Revs. Herrick Hall of the Baptist Church, McKinney of the Methodist Church and Piepenbrok of the Lutheran Church. There were many beautiful floral emblems in evidence, attesting the high regard in which deceased was held by our people. Burial in Weimer Masonic Cemetery.
Mrs. Rogers was born near Weimer June 20, 1853, and all but four years of her life was spent in Colorado county. She was united in marriage to Mr. A.B. Rogers Oct. 19, 1879. She had been a member of he church for a period of forty-five years. At time of death Mrs. Rogers had attained the age of 75 years, 11 months and 29 days. She was buried on the anniversary of her birth.
Mrs. Rogers was a woman of many noble qualities, which endeared her to a large circle of friends wherever she was known. Possessing a heart overflowing with the milk of human kindness, she was always interested in the misfortunes and troubles of others, and as a comforter was always welcome. She always proved herself a devoted wife and mother, a true friend under any and all circumstances, a consistent , consecrated christian, and in her passing all feel keenly the loss our community and her family have sustained.
She leaves a heart-broken husband, a devoted daughter, Miss Bessie Rogers, and myriads of friends throughout this entire section, all of whom join us in expression of sympathy to her bereaved ones.
