Katherine J. (Strouth) Rogers

May 4, 1936 ~ December 18, 2020 (age 84)



Katherine J. Rogers, passed from this life into the loving arms of her Lord and Savior, December 18, 2020 at the age of 84. She was born May 4, 1936 in Bluefield, West Virginia, to the late Chester and Onie Puckett Strouth.

She now joins her beloved husband, Glenn Rogers, Sr., who preceded her in death and her sister, Virginia Price.

Katherine leaves a trail of beautiful memories to those who survive; daughters, Peggy (Ron) Somosko, Cathy Henry all of Green, Kimberly (Tom) Neptune of Akron; son, Glenn (Audrey) Rogers of Green; grandchildren, Sean, Amy, Jeff, Aaron, Ryan, David, Nathan, Isaac, Tommy, and Karleigh; 13 great-grandchildren; and sisters, Betty Daugherty of Green and Brenda Kime of Canton.

Very devoted to her family, Katherine asked for so little, but gave so much. A giving person by nature, Katherine’s heart was always open, giving cheerfully. A hard working and supportive person through all her life journeys, the one most glorifying was her Christian journey, leading her to beautiful destinations. “Well done, good and faithful servant.”
