I am writing this for my mother, Marjorie Innes Rogers, who is a resident in assisted living at Amber Glen in Urbana and my brother, Barry Rogers and father, George Rogers. Amy's mother, Aunt Myrt, and Marjorie's dad were brother and sister.

We are deeply saddened by the passing of Amy......or as the family called her, “Short.” We thought a lot of Amy and we have many fond memories of family reunions. You are in our hearts and our prayers.
