Evelyn Anter Rogers

July 24th, 1927 to September 29th, 2020

Evelyn Anter Rogers, 93, of Merritt Island, Florida, formerly of Port Huron, Michigan, passed away on Tuesday, September 29, 2020.

She was born July 24, 1927 in Port Huron to the late Russell J. and Lucille C. Haddad Anter.

Evelyn received her education from St. Stephen School in Port Huron. Following graduation in 1945 she moved to Long Beach, CA. She attended Long Beach City College studying the liberal arts, earning an Associates Degree. She met her future husband, U.S. Navy and World War II Veteran, Carl W. Rogers Sr. They married in Riverside, CA on September 7, 1962. The Rogers family would eventually establish roots in McLean, VA. Carl preceded her in death in 1987.

Evelyn worked for years as an insurance agent at the Stell Insurance Agency in McLean. Evelyn was a Smithsonian Associate, a lover of classical music and an appreciator of the arts. Above all, she was a confidant, advisor, sponsor, protector and nurse to numerous grateful families and friends over the years.

In 1997, Evelyn relocated back to the place of her birth in Port Huron. She spent the next two decades contentedly reconnecting with family and friends while remaining active with the St. Mary Catholic Community, supporting charity events, volunteering and offering her green thumb for beautification of the church grounds.

Evelyn spent her final years in sunny Melbourne, Florida to be next to her daughter and grandchildren located in nearby Merritt Island.

She is survived by her two sons, daughter, and five grandchildren.

Services will be held on October 17, 2020 at the National Memorial Park in Falls Church, VA, where she will be laid to rest beside her husband Carl.

The family requests memorial contributions be made to St. Mary Catholic Church in Port Huron, MI.
