Funeral Rites for Dr. Rogers

Cremation Will Follow Services at Home Tomorrow Evening

Services for Dr. Alvin S. Rogers, 47, widely known Trenton physician, who died yesterday at his home, 233 North Warren Street, of a streptococcic infection, which he is believed to have contracted in the performance of his medical duties, will be conducted at his home tomorrow evening by the Rev. Oscar W. Henderson, pastor of Grace Baptist Church. Friends may call tomorrow afternoon and evening.

The funeral, Wednesday morning, will be private. Cremation will take place in Ewing Crematorium. George F. Ullrich is in charge of arrangements.

Graduated from the University of Pennsylvania Medical School in 1910, Dr. Rogers served his internship in Mercer Hospital and was then appointed to the hospital medical staff. Beginning in 1911, he conducted his office at 126 North Warren Street until last October, when he moved to 233 North Warren Street.

Surviving are his wife, Luella Johnston Rogers; a son, Alvin S., Jr., aged 11, a daughter, Esther Louise, 6 and two sisters, Misses Florence and Olivia Rogers, of this city.

Dr. Rogers was born in a house which formerly stood opposite St. Mary's Cathedral School, the son of the late Dr. Elmer H. Rogers and Olivia Bowers Rogers. Receiving his early education in the local public schools, he later attended George School, Pennsylvania Medical School and Pennington Seminary, and also undertook special studies at Jefferson Medical College, where he was a member of Phi Beta Pi fraternity. He also took art and culture courses in Belgium.

He was a member of many fraternal organizations and other societies including Column Lodge of Masons, the Shrine, Knights Templar, Knights of Pythias, Knights of the Golden Eagles, Camp 14, Patriotic Order Sons of America; Kiwanis Club, Woodmen of the World, and the American Medical Profession.

Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard, but always near. Still loved, still missed, and forever dear.
