    Notes 
    • Rogers, Arlene Mary Ann (West)

      Our Heavenly Father and our Dad came down and put their arms around mom and took her home. Arlene Mary Ann (West) Rogers went to her heavenly reward on Saturday, May 31, 2014 after a courageous battle with cancer. She was born April 9, 1927 in Appleton, daughter of the late Joseph and Catherine (Weber) West, 1 of six children. She lived her entire life in Appleton. She attended St. Joseph's grade school and graduated from Appleton High School (West) in 1945. She married the love of her life Thomas W. Rogers, Sr on August 17, 1946. Whenever they went for a walk you would see them holding hands. They celebrated 60 wonderful years together in August of 2006. Tom passed away September 28th of that year.

      She worked as a teenager at the Appleton Theater. Arlene worked 21 years selling shoes at Bohl and Maeser's, as secretary in St. Elizabeth Hospital ER, retiring from Appleton Pharmacy. Arlene and Tom spent over 20 years taking vacations with their family renting a cottage on Shawano Lake. They also spent over 30 years camping at a Shawano campground making lifelong friends. Many nights were spent around the bonfire until the early morning hours. After retirement they spent a number of winters in Florida (starting 1995) and then in Texas (starting 2002). They had their happiest times when they were with their kids and grandkids.

      Arlene is survived by her eight children, David (Suzanne) Rogers, Appleton, Robert (Diane) Rogers, Appleton, Mary Kay (Jerry) Deering, Brownsville, Texas, Brittney (Jerry) Phillips, Oshkosh, Karen (Keith) Kaphingst, Oconomowoc, Richard (Lynn) Rogers, Appleton, Thomas (Tammy) Rogers Jr, Appleton, James Rogers, Red Granite. She is further survived by 21 grandchildren, Michael, Christopher, Rachael, Teri, Jamie, Steffenie, Heather, Chaz, Dustin, Brent, Angel, Dana, Pamela, Brian, Katherine, Elizabeth, Tim, Travis, Tera, Jessica and Kristi. Also 48 great-grandchildren and 3 great-great-grandchildren. Arlene is survived by her brothers Henry West, Kaukauna, Robert (Betty)West, Sun City West, AZ; Norbert Sr. (Carol) West, Appleton, her brother-in-law John Rogers; step sister-in-law, Betty (Howard) Kieffer, Iron Mountain, MI; and many nieces and nephews. She was a wonderful godmother to several of her grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

      She was further preceded in death by her in-laws William and Edna Rogers Malliet; and Edna's 2nd husband, James Malliet; sisters Lola (Jerry) Schneider and Valerie (Ervin) Portman; sisters-in-law Shirley (Dean) Jeffers, Mary Rogers, Marie West and Jeanne West.

      Funeral Mass for Arlene will be 11:00 AM on Friday June 6, 2014 at ST. MARY CATHOLIC CHURCH, 312 S. State Street, Appleton, with Fr. Bob Lexa officiating. Visitation will be held Thursday evening at Valley Funeral Home from 4:00 until 8:00 PM, and again on Friday at the church beginning at 9:00 AM until the hour of Mass.

      We would like to give special thanks to Dr. Guenther and the rest of the team at Martha Siekman Cancer Center; and the staff on the 8th floor at AMC.

      To my Dear Children,

      Cry for a little while, then wipe away your tears. Look at the stars at night and I will be there shining bright and watching over you. See a rainbow and you will know Dad is with you. Carry all the memories of Dad and me in your hearts. The memories will always keep a smile on your face. Dad and I will always love you. You are all strong children and will carry on with your families and make wonderful memories for your children to keep in their hearts.

      With all my love to my dear beautiful children. Mom
