OBITUARY

Mrs. Elwanda Mozell Rogers

December 31, 1926January 6, 2021

Elwanda Rogers, age 94 of Hurst, Texas passed away of natural causes peacefully in her sleep on January 6, 2021.

She was born on a farm in Grady County, near Alex, Oklahoma on December 31, 1926. Since she was born premature, the doctor did not expect her to live so he put on her birth certificate that she was stillborn. She found out in 1979 when she went to get a passport and needed a copy of her birth certificate--they would not give it to her without two witnesses stating she was alive at the time of her birth. They then had to attach an amendment to her birth certificate. She lived a long and good life.

Elwanda graduated from Prague High School in Prague, Oklahoma and studied Biblical Studies at Oklahoma Christian University in Edmond, Oklahoma.

Elwanda was self-employed as an owner of Sonic Drive-Ins, Emporia Sign Company, and Real Estate Investments.

She was a member of First Baptist Colleyville, Texas and had a passion for Bowling, Cake Decorating, Ceramics, Stamp Collecting, and Wood Carving.

When she had kids in High School, she was known as "Mom" to many of her children's friends and then when she became a grandmother, she was known as "Grandma" to all her grandchildren's friends and family.

She was preceded in death by her father Elmer Stewart, mother Xelpho Stewart, brother Recel Levoy Stewart and wife Phyllis, brother Royce Elmer Stewart, brother Ronnie Dean Stewart, grandchild Melissa S. Rogers.

She is survived by son Darrell L. Rogers, son Gary D. Rogers and wife Deborah, daughter Janet M. Pearson, grandchildren Jennifer Anne Creecy and husband Brandon, Jonathan Appel and wife Tammy, Shawn Cather and husband Dennis, Christopher Rogers and wife Jennifer, Brittany Rogers, Christine Rogers, Stephanie Rogers, great grandchildren Jayden Creecy, Bradyn Creecy, Raleigh Cather, Vance Cather, Sterling Burris, Chance Robertson, Alicia Bollinger, Sophia Flores, Nicholas Garcia, Venessa Garcia, Clayton Cai, Fiona Cai, and numerous nieces, nephew, cousins and their families.
