February 28, 1955 - August 19, 2013
In Loving Memory Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 1 Corinthians 13: 4-7 Catherine Grace Rogers was born on February 28, 1955 to the union of Shelby and Rosetta Grace in Monroe, Louisiana. Catherine received her formal education through the Monroe Public School System, graduating from Carroll High School in 1975. Catherine accepted Christ at an early age and was baptized at Tried Stone Baptist Church of Monroe, Louisiana, under the leadership of Pastor George Washington. She was employed by St Francis Medical Center for thirteen years and retired in 2003. In her leisure time, she enjoyed knitting, cooking, spending time with her grandchildren and watching her favorite television network TNT. She was a beautiful person who showered love to everyone she came in contact with.

To Those I Love and Those Who Love Me When I am gone, release me, let me go. I have so many things to see and do, You mustn't tie yourself to me with tears, Be happy that we had for so many years. I gave you all my love, you can only guess, How much you gave me in happiness. I thank you for the love each of you have shown. But now it's time that I traveled alone. So grieve awhile for me, if grieve you must, Then let your grief be comforted by trust. It's only for awhile that we must part, So keep the memories within your heart. I won't be far away, for life goes on, So if you need me, call and I will come. Though you cannot see or touch me, I'll be near, and if you listen with your heart, you'll hear. All of my love around you, soft and clear. And then, when you must come this way alone... I'll greet you with a smile and say- "Welcome Home."
