Obituary for Evelyn Louise Rogers

Evelyn Louise (Knapp) Rogers, age 97, passed away Friday, January 25, 2019, at her home in Fairfield. She was born March 27, 1921 in Auburn, AL, the daughter of the late Levi A. and Annie Mae (Patterson) Knapp.

Evelyn was a loving mother who brought great joy and laughter to her children. She served the military community for over 30 years through her support of her husband during his career with the U.S. Army. In every duty station, regardless of climate or soil type, she created gardens that blossomed with colorful flowers and were a joy to behold. In her younger years, she enjoyed bowling, playing bridge and other card games, and was a competitive ping pong player. She was happiest when in the garden or spending time with her children and their families. Even in the last years of her life she didn’t miss an opportunity to go outside and dig in the dirt.

Evelyn is survived by her four loving children and their families; sons, Ernest R. Rogers, III and his wife Avery of Madison, GA, James A. Rogers and his wife Sharon Grovatt of Tabernacle, NJ, John N. Rogers and his wife Christie Arlotta of Cream Ridge, NJ, and daughter Susan Wagle and her husband Dane of Fairfield; grandchildren, Ernest Rogers, IV and wife Dawn, Jeff Rogers and wife Rachel, James Edward Rogers and fiancé Renee, Allyson Wagle, Rebecca Rogers-Pelletier and husband Dustin, Rachel (Rogers) Batt and husband Rhys, and great-grandchildren, Sam, Sidney, Josh, Parker, Luke and Tyler Rogers, Sean Pelletier, and baby boy Batt due to join the family in March; her older sister Jeannette Hohlweg of Auburn, AL, and her baby brother Levi A. Knapp of Opelika, AL. She was preceded in death by her parents, her sister Annie Mae Cox, and her husband Ernest R. Rogers, Jr. who passed in December of 2006.

Professional services are entrusted to Dugan Funeral Home and Crematory Inc., Shippensburg, PA. Memorial services are at the discretion of the family. Interment will be at Brigadier General Doyle Cemetery, Wrightstown, NJ.
