Julia Rogers
Rogers, Julia 89 05/23/1919 04/27/2009 In most families, it's quietly understood that "Mom's in charge." But in the Rogers family of Portland, the hierarchy was official. Mom was a captain in the U.S. Army at the end of World War II. Dedicated Army nurse, Julia Rogers, passed away Monday after a long illness. She was 89. The eventual Mr. and Mrs. Rogers met when Lloyd Rogers returned from internment. He had survived the Bataan Death March and several years as a prisoner of war. Julia treated many of the solders who suffered so greatly as a result of combat or internment. After leaving the military, Julia continued her service to humanity. The experience she gained treating what we now call wounded warriors, was invaluable during 20 years of service as a civilian nurse at Portland's Providence Hospital. She served as the head nurse of Providence's surgical ward. Lloyd preceded Julia in death in March 1975. The two are survived by a son, Charles; two daughters, Julie Ann and Mary Ann; and two grandsons, Caleb and Zachary. Services with military honors will be held at 9:30 a.m. Friday, May 1, 2009, in Willamette National Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the Providence Medical Foundation. Arrangements under the direction of Lincoln Memorial Park & Funeral Home.
