Beverly Jean Rogers, 79, of Shelby, went to be with the Lord on Saturday, March 28, 2020, at the Northern Rockies Medical Center in Cut Bank after a brief illness. A celebration of life will be held at later date. Arrangements have been entrusted to Asper Funeral Homes.
Bev was born Oct. 12, 1940, in Great Falls to Virgil and Frances (Wheeler) Yerigan. She was raised in Cut Bank. She and her older sister, Tamera, medaled on the swim team, were in Rainbow Girls and helped with their grandmother’s boarding-house.
In November 1958 she married Stanley Rogers. The couple lived on the farm northeast of Shelby, and later in Shelby, where they raised their four children. In 1977 they moved back to the farm. Stan passed away in 2000 and 11 years later, Bev moved to Shelby.
In 2016 she moved into the Marias Heritage Center where she remained until the time of her death. Bev enjoyed being a leader of Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts and Brownies. She was a member of the Moose Lodge and the Eastern Star. She enjoyed gardening, working in her greenhouse, and her pickled beets were the best.
One of her greatest pleasures was teasing, which she did until the end.
Bev was comforted after her husband’s death by grief counseling with Pastor Joe of the St. Luke’s Lutheran Church. She came to know and love her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. She was a member of the St Luke’s Lutheran Church, taught Sunday school, was a member of the church council and was involved in the Latch Key program. She traveled yearly to Billings to attend the Women of Faith, where she loved to worship with the ladies of her family.
Bev was preceded in death by her parents; her husband; great-grandson, Austin; and
son-in-law, George Den Boer.
She is survived by her children, Cheri (Glenn) Robertson of Helena, Chris (Gary) Quenzer of Cut Bank, Cindy Lowry of Choteau, and Wayne (Brenda) Rogers of Shelby; her sister, Tamera; brothers of Great Falls; seven grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; four great-great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.
