Roberta Jean Rogers, 71, passed away September 27, 2023, at her home near Hudson, Kansas surrounded by her loving family.
Roberta was born on March 3, 1952, in Bremerton, Washington, to Robert and Jean (Nivert) Bentley. On January 12, 1974, she married Bob Rogers in Kansas City, Kansas.
Roberta grew up mostly in Kansas City, where she met her future husband. After marrying, they lived in the Kansas City area; Houston, Texas; Salina, and finally rural Hudson. She retired as the Trust Operations Officer for Advantage Trust Company in Salina.
Roberta found delight in seeing others enjoying her amazing cooking. She volunteered her cooking talents to raise funds for Project Salina, a cause near to her heart. She also shared her passion for cooking, reading, and creative art projects with her family, many of whom still have painted or cross-stitched shirts in their closets. She spent many enjoyable evenings watching movies with her family, often hiding her eyes behind the TV remote during suspenseful parts.
