Our dear loved one, Edith Rogers, went to join her first and only love, Fred Rogers in God’s House on September 6, 2014. She was born in Galveston, TX, December 7, 1923, and “Island Girl.”

Mom was always available for everyone who wanted/needed love, food, comfort or a true friend.
Edith was a devout catholic and close to the Lord.
She will be sadly missed by all.
Thanks to father Francis and Father Tino for life time friendship.

  1. Aunt Edith was a kind and generous person, totally dedicated to her family and ever faithful to The Lord. She could always be counted on for a conversation of substance. We have many fond memories of this beautiful lady. The gates of heaven opened wide when her soul left this earth. We will miss you Dear Aunt, Fred & JoAnn

  2. Aunt Edith was such a blessing in my life. She taught me how to be a true Catholic. Thanks for sharing your love of God and the Blessed Mother. We will forever keep your memory. Love you always.

  3. Aunt Edith’s Wednesday prayer meetings will stay with me forever. She taught me the power of the Rosary and wonderful blessing of family and our Church family as well. It was her devotion to Our Lady that was contagious and I firmly believe that is why the Lord took her on First Saturday. My life is so much richer because of her – Fr. Francis’ talk with Elizabeth and I during our preparation for the sacrament of matrimony caused us to rethink our ideas of having children. We now have six wonderful blessings in our life to make it fuller. This would not have been possible without Aunt Edith and her devotion to Fr. Francis as a seminarian (you too, Tino).

    Her devotion to seminarians will continue, our second son has been accepted as a seminarian for the Galveston-Houston Diocese. God Bless you Aunt Edith (and Uncle Freddy) for you have blessed us greatly.
