It is with deep sadness that the family of Mary (Mae) Rogers announces her passing on April 7, 2011 at the age of 94 years. Mae was the last child born on February 22, 1917, of the pioneer family of Susan and George LaRose. Mae was predeceased by her parents; her five brothers: Frank, Louie, Ted, Roy and Penny; two sisters Pearl Van Dyke and Eva Askerland and daughter in law Ava Rogers. Mae is survived by her children: Pat (Ed) Rouble of Taylor, BC, Bob Rogers of Sylvan Lake, Gary (Judi) Rogers of Peace River and Marie (Les) Grabill of Calgary; eleven grandchildren; fifteen great grandchildren; four great great grandchildren; sister in law Aline LaRose and numerous nieces and nephews, other relatives and many dear friends.

Mae’s dry sense of humour, quick wit and her outgoing personality will be missed by all who knew and understood her.

Funeral services for the late Mae Rogers held on Wednesday, April 13, 2011 at 2:00 P.M. in the Heartland Chapel of Stettler Funeral Home with Father Arlan Parenteau officiating, followed by interment at Lake View Cemetery, Stettler, Alberta.
