Brenda Gail Eden Rogers, 69, died Thursday, November 1, at Mercy Hospital, Rogers, Arkansas. She was born in Bentonville, Arkansas, on November 3, 1948, to William Harold Eden and Martha Presley Eden. She grew up in Monte Ne and Rogers, Arkansas, and was a 1966 graduate of Rogers High School. She earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Arkansas in 1970 and a master’s degree from the University of Texas–Austin in 1980. She was a gifted teacher who taught grades from pre-school to sixth grade in Rogers, San Antonio, the Chicago area, Decatur, Georgia, and Stuttgart, Germany. She is survived by her husband of fifty years, Buddy (Hiluard G.) Rogers; a daughter, Jennifer Eden Rogers and son-in-law Eamon Renaghan, both of Rogers and grandson, Joshua Bezdek of New Braunfels, Texas. A member of First Baptist Church of Rogers, Brenda lived a luminous life in Christ. Her joy and thoughtfulness, strength and compassion, wisdom and humor drew others to her. She was a fierce protector of her family, her students, and her faith and a miracle of grace and generosity. Despite living with chronic pain her entire adult life, she remained positive and gloried in the love of her husband and daughter. Her family and many friends miss her musical laugh but are comforted that she suffers no more. And more than consoled that her soul is at peace in God’s loving arms. Visitation will be held tomorrow, Monday, November 5th from 4-7:00pm in Rollins Funeral Home, 1401 West Hudson, Rogers. Her Funeral service will be at 2:00pm, Tuesday at First Baptist Church of Rogers- Olive St Campus, 8th and Olive in Rogers. A private family interment will follow.
