Obituary for Colette Rogers

Peoria- Colette Rogers, age 89, of Peoria, passed away peacefully at 3:20 AM on Sunday, September 08, 2019 at Unity Point Proctor Hospital surrounded by her family.

Born April 03, 1930 in Rutland, she was a daughter to William Francis and Rose Marie Schmillen. On November 27, 1952 Colette married the love of her life Fred Rogers. Together they celebrated 65 years of marriage until his passing on August 05, 2018. Colette was a very creative, compassionate, and loving wife, mother, grandmother, and friend who loved volunteering her time at Methodist Hospital, singing in the Ephpheta Choir and creating Rosaries. She will be remembered for her love of gardening especially her canned pink cinnamon apple sauce and sweet corn. Her gentle spirit and love of her family took her and Fred all over the country to watch her grandchildren’s events. Colette was deeply loved and will be greatly missed.

She is survived by her children Mark (Theresa), Matt (Elaine), Teresa Kirchgessner (Ken), Kim Gordon (Steve), Rosalie Gallagher (Dan), Fred (Jenny), Mary Schopp (Bob), and Luke (Micki); 30 grandchildren and 44 great-grandchildren.

Visitation will be held on Friday, September 13, 2019 between the hours of 4 - 6 p.m. at Wright and Salmon Mortuary in Peoria with Recitation of the Rosary at 5:45. A second visitation will be at St. Jude Catholic Church on Saturday, September 14 from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. with a Funeral Mass at 10:30. Interment will follow at St. Clement Cemetery on N. Park School Rd, Dunlap.

As an expression of sympathy, in lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions may be made to St. Jude Catholic School, Peoria.
