Chloe Rogers was born in Snowflake, Arizona Territory, on November 13, 1889, to Amos and Lydia Ann Herbst Rogers. She had a happy childhood, surrounded by siblings and cousins. Her family lived in a beautiful home of red brick with white trim, at the corner of 1st South and 3rd West. Her mother raised fruit trees, a garden, chickens, geese, flowers, and bees. Chloe learned hard work and service.
She graduated from Snowflake Academy, and later married John Rothlisberger in the Mesa Arizona LDS Temple. John and Chloe moved west of Vernon and settled into a happy life together. Their primary occupation was dry farming and selling chicken eggs.
Chloe was very sociable and craved lots of contact with people. Each day, when her chores were finished, she and a friend from the next farm walked three miles to Vernon to pick up their mail. They exchanged news with anyone they met. Often, if weather permitted, they walked six or seven miles to make the rounds of some of the neighboring farms and ranches.
Chloe loved babies and children, but was never blessed with any of her own. Her husband, John, died on July 30, 1938. Not too long after, she married Jasper Harris and he helped her run the farm for a few years. Then they moved to St. Johns.
Her niece, Mabel, was already living in St. Johns so at last she had family near. She soon had more new friends, too. Chloe went to Mabel's house nearly every day and helped with babies and the never-ending chores of hanging out, folding, and ironing clothes. She spent lots of time doing handwork like crocheting doilies. She liked to make raisin-filled cookies, and grew red rosebushes.
One winter, Ethel Hext (a friend in St. Johns) was sick, and was told not to go outside and not to lift heavy loads. Mabel and Chloe decided to help out. So, all winter, Mabel picked up the Hexts' dirty laundry, brought it to town, washed it, and hung it out. Chloe brought it in, folded it and ironed everything that needed to be ironed.
Chloe Rogers was quiet, reserved, thoughtful, and always ready to help out. Her testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ was rock-solid. She died from a stroke on September 20, 1965.
