SAN JUAN RECORD 1936-05-07


The people of San Juan County were saddened Sunday morning when word was received that Mrs Sarah Jane Rogerson had died at her home in Monticello during the night. Mrs Rogerson came to Monticello with her husband and two small chidren in 1888. Almost immediately, began a career in public life, when she became the first school teacher here.
The front room of her home was the only school house for a period of three years. Following this period Mrs Rogerson
was elected to the office of county clerk and held the position for a period of 15 years and was president
of the Primary association and secretary of the Relief society for 20 years. Following the incorporation of
the town Mrs Rogerson became the town clerk, which position she also held for many years. Aside from her public duties, Mrs Rogerson was an outstanding housewife
and good mother. Her home was a conservatory of potted plants making it the envy of some and the admiration
of all. She was also adept at needle work.
Mrs Rogerson was born in Parowan, Utah on January 17, 1861 where she grew to womanhood and where she married J Edward Rogerson October 2, 1878. Five children were born to the union, four of whom are living. They are: J. Edward of Provo; LaVerna Jensen of Monticello; Jean of Salt Lake City and Lynn of st. George. Impressive funeral ceremonies were held at the Monticello L D S church Monday afternoon, the local schools dismissing to attend the service.
