Mary Catherine Rogers

Mary Catherine Rogers went to be with our Lord on January 6, 2023. Mary was born to George and Frances Welsh on June 23, 1919, in Omaha, Nebraska. She grew up in Omaha, graduated from Benson High School, and raised her family there.

During her early years, she was a professional dancer supporting her family during the depression and war years. Mary also lived in Libby, Montana after retirement and then spent the last 30 years in Shelton. Mary was always active in her community, as a Den Mother, PTA member, garden club member, school cafeteria worker, and servant at both First Baptist Church in Omaha and later at Mt. Olive Lutheran Church in Shelton. Cooking and gardening were her passions. She and her husband Mel enjoyed camping and adventures with the family throughout their lives.

Mary was preceded in death by her brothers, Frank "Hank", George, Jr., "Junie" and Thomas "Tut", and her husband Melburn. She is survived by her sons George (Patricia) and Bob (Lorilyn), grandsons Simon, Jim, Steve, Mike and six great-grandchildren.

A celebration of life service will be held at Mt. Olive Lutheran Church, Shelton at 1:00 p.m. on February 11, 2023.
