Charlene “Char” A. Rogers, 74

June 05, 2022

Charlene “Char” A. Rogers, 74, of Lititz, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, June 5, 2022. Born in Joliet, IL she was the daughter of the late Francis (Widlowski) and James Hazer. She was the beloved wife to James L. Rogers with whom she celebrated 49 wonderful years of marriage.
Prior to retirement, Char worked at Weis Markets in Lititz for over 29 years. Char was a member of St. James Catholic Church. She was an active volunteer at the church for over 37 years. Char was an avid reader, enjoyed traveling, spending time with her girlfriends, shopping and visiting the casino. She was also a talented cook and baker. Most of all she cherished spending time with her family and taking care of her grandchildren. “Geema” was always excited to witness and cheer her grandchildren on. She loved attending their games, and being included in whatever other sports, dances, or activities they were interested in at the time. She was their biggest cheerleader, at the sidelines as much as possible to show support for all of them. Her family was her greatest joy and biggest purpose.
In addition to her husband, Char is survived by her children: Eric W. Rogers of Lititz, Joseph J. Rogers husband of Lauren of Lancaster and Kenneth M. Rogers husband of Heather of Centreville, VA; 7 grandchildren: Kelsey, Ava, Mia, Chase, Beau, Carter, and Charlotte; her sister Mary Lou Drysch as well as several nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her siblings: Bernadine Caldwell, James Hazer and Thomas Hazer.
In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, www.stjude.org or Lancaster Catholic Theology Department, 650 Juliette Avenue, Lancaster, PA 17601.

Jim, I was saddened to see that Char had passed recently. Although Sue and I strongly believe that we as parents are ultimately responsible to develop our children in the appropriate way, it was wonderful that Matt was exposed to you and Char in his formative years as role models. May God bless you and your family in this time of grief.

I know what you are about to experience and you will always keep her in your heart by remembering the good times you shared together. Having encountering the same experience, if you need someone to talk to give me a call and I will be more than willing to listen and listen and listen – Steve Ihnat

To The Rogers Family—Our hearts break for you. My wife and I had very infrequent meetings with your Mom and Dad–usually at a picnic or in our last meeting with them at my brother Chris Scinta’s wedding. Our families have always been such wonderful friends and your Mom was always a BIG part of any celebration.

Jim and family, I’m so sorry to hear this sad news. I’m grateful to have just had that conversation with both of you recently at Fiorentinos. I left there thinking to myself how happy she seemed. I hope it brings you all a small comfort that she lived a happy life. 🙏🏼💗

Char was my very special & best friend. She was so beautiful inside and out. She was my traveling and beach buddy. She always knew the right things to say and was willing to help. I thank God she was in my life. I will truly miss her. 
To her family you are all in my thoughts and prayers. She loved you all very much.
