Death: Dec. 1, 1942

Frances Mary Huband Rogers was born on October 12, 1865 in Birmingham, England, a daughter of William Perry and Ann Jeffrey Huband. When she was 4 years old her parents emigrated to the United States and made their way West by train. They first settled in Carter Station, Wyoming, and a year later moved to Logan, Utah where her father built a log cabin, and later a more permanent home.

As a child, because of her father's early death and lack of financial means, and since there were no relatives, she was "boarded out" along with her other siblings. Frances was boarded out to a person called "the old rich widow." She knitted lace till her little finger on one hand was crooked.

Later she served as postmaster for several years at Hyrum. She may have met her future husband, Alma Hernando Rogers, there, as he came to collect his mail - she married Alma on 4 April, 1888. Leaving Hyrum, she moved to North Ogden where she was active in the LDS Relief Society. She came to Salt Lake City in 1922.

Frances was the mother of 7 children: Frances Mary, Lucile Eva, Mildred Ione, Agnes Marie, William Alma, Victor Clyde and Marguerite Ann. She passed away on December 1, 1942, in Salt Lake City, Utah, and was interred at Wasatch Lawn Memorial Park in Salt Lake on 3 December, 1942.

Frances was a superb gardener. Later, her daughter Lucile Rogers Marshall penned the following poem:

My Mother's Garden

My mother's garden bordered on this path
A glad response to every season's call
When warm south breezes stirred her new leaves airy
It decked itself in gentle hues - a fairy
With daffodils
And soft blue squills
In artful frills
To make Spring tarry.

But these would fade like withered gossamer
Beneath the mellow warmth of bolder sun
The summer in more brilliant dress walked stately
And all the little path was fringed sedately
With hollyhocks
And beds of phlox
And four-o-clocks
That glowed ornately.

It is September now and years between
Have touched her garden with a ruthless hand
The worn stones to the little house remind me
The window frame of faded green stares blindly
And in the space
I seem to trace
A wistful face
Oh, skies, weep kindly.
