Ruth Elaine Rogers, 89, went home to be with her Lord on September 14, 2020.
Ruth was born in Midwest, Wyoming on August 14, 1931. She graduated from Midwest High School in 1949.
In 1950, she married Lee Hall Rogers. They lived on a farm just south of Gillette and then settled in Midwest, Wyoming, where they raised six children (including two sets of twins).
Ruth was very active in raising and caring for her children, in her church, playing piano, and in the Ladies Missionary Circle. Ruth worked on the playground and in the front office of Midwest Schools. Ruth enjoyed attending sports and musical performances of her children.
Ruth’s hobbies included knitting, embroidery, canning vegetables from her backyard, and she was a “Fierce” game player, winning most every game. She was a fabulous mother, reading stories, taking her children on very fast drives in the green station wagon, playing games, and much more. Later in her life, she enjoyed driving her red PT Cruiser, and then she became a Bingo queen at her assisted living.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Edna and Roy Miller, her husband, Lee, her brothers, Bob and Don Miller. She is survived by her sister, Shirley, her children, Don (Terri) of Palm Harbor, FL, Dean (Monica) of Johnstown, CO, David of Casper, WY, Carol (Dan) of Colorado Springs, CO, Barbara (Bob) of Albuquerque NM, and Bruce (Linda) of Eugene, OR; 10 grandchildren, 9 great grandchildren, and one great-great grandchild.
