Obituary

Dee passed away peacefully on February 6, 2019 at NCMC surrounded by her family.

Dee was born “Deanna Joan Warren” on April 10, 1944 in Kearney, Nebraska to Norris and Madeline (McConnell) Warren. She spent her early years in Overton, Nebraska. Her family moved to Lexington, Nebraska where she attended elementary, junior high and high school. Dee was an excellent musician and an accomplished singer. She played the piano and was an excellent clarinet player for the Lexington High School Marching Band. She was also selected and served as the band’s Drum Majorette. Dee performed in the High School Choir as well as a select singing group known as the “Triple Trio”. Dee also sang in the Methodist Church Choir.

After graduating from Lexington High School, Dee attended Kearney State College (now the University of Nebraska at Kearney) on the All-State Fine Arts Scholarship and was a charter member of the Alpha Phi Sorority. While at Kearney State she became an accomplished soprano as a member of the “College Choraleers” as well as performing as a soloist. Dee earned a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Voice Performance.

After graduation from Kearney, Dee became a primary teacher for Greeley School District 6. She started her career and spent seventeen years at Madison Elementary. She later transferred to and taught 17 more years at Shawsheen Elementary. During her teaching Career she touched several hundred students, many of whom have become successful and productive citizens. Due to her outstanding professional work, Dee was inducted into Alpha Delta Kappa, an Honorary Educators sorority, in which she was recently honored as a “Silver Sister” for 25 years of altruistic contributions.

Dee was married to Eric Rogers “Ric” on August 18, 1968. Shortly after, they moved to LaSalle and were blessed with two sons, Tyler and Cameron. While living in LaSalle, Dee became an active member of the LaSalle Flames (an auxiliary for the LaSalle Volunteer Fire Department). She was a member of the Flames competition team that competed in regional contests that demonstrated skills in the deployment and handling of firefighting apparatus. Ric and Dee were married for nearly 51 years.

Dee came from a musical family and loved the live theater. She especially loved musical theater. They often traveled to Las Vegas to take advantage of the opportunities to see great productions. She really loved being able to see many great productions at Temple Buell. Some of the ones that she really liked celebrated the rock and roll music of our teen age years like Jersey Boys and Forever Plaid.

Dee was a real sports fan. She followed the Rockies faithfully. She probably knew more about football than most men. She never missed the Broncos on TV. By far and away her favorite team were the Colorado Buffaloes and seldom missed a home game for several years. She always liked to be there early to watch the Golden Buffaloes Marching Band play their way into the stadium through the field house. It was a special thrill the years Tyler was playing with the band. She was able to attend and enjoy many other events at CU and especially enjoyed Christmas/Holiday concerts. Again, it was a special thrill to watch and listen when Cameron performed with the CU Men’s Select Choir.

Ric and Dee retired in 2001. After spending 34 years working 12 hours a day at teaching, Dee found time to pursue some new hobbies. She started a stamping hobby and set up a studio at her home where she perfected her art of creating greeting cards. Everyone seemed to look forward to receiving her cards. She was really good at making each card special for each person and each occasion. Her studio is well stocked with all manner of tools and supplies. She often commented on how much money we were saving by her making cards. Then she would add “ya I guess we are going broke saving money.”

Dee also loved to bake. After retirement she began her Christmas cookie pursuits. Every year she would bake 80 to 100 dozen cookies of several varieties. Family, friends, and neighbors loved to receive her beautifully decorated platters of Christmas cookies. Her daughter-in-law Heidi dubbed her the “Cookie Queen.” The name stuck.

Dee also enjoyed periodic trips “up the mountain” to Central City and Black Hawk and occasionally to Cripple Creek. She said that these trips should be considered charity work because we were really making contributions to the local economy.
Dee was always a voracious reader. Her taste in literature really had no limitations. After retirement she joined a special circle of friends and the called themselves the Bluestockings Book Club. They always enjoyed discussing the latest book, selecting the next book and especially the food and fellowship. Her absence will be felt.

She loved gardening and especially flowers. Her patio and front porch were always beautiful. When she was unable to actually work on her flower pots she would sit under the large umbrella on the deck and supervise the planting of each flower pot.

Dee never knew a stranger. She was a positive influence on literally hundreds of people, and we don’t know anyone who didn’t like her.

Dee was preceded in death by her parents and brother-in-law, Dr. Terry Owens.

Dee is survived by her husband of nearly 51 years Ric; children Tyler and Heidi Rogers of Castle Rock, Cameron and Colette Rogers of Parker; beloved grandchildren, Jillian and Caleb Rogers of Castle Rock and special grand dogs, Booker, Opie and Penny. Dee is also survived by her sister, Cheryl Parks (Jerry) of Fleming, Co; sisters-in-law, Jimi Hummel and Pat Owens of Houston Texas; brother-in-law, Dr. Mike Rogers (Jan) of Coleman, TX; nieces and nephews, Dr. Dori Hertel of Houston, Justin Parks (Alexis) of Rifle, CO., Mason Rogers (Noy) of San Francisco, Steven Rogers of Dallas, Jennifer Compton (Steve) and Malynda Owens of Arlington, TX; grand nieces and nephews, Aubry, Jordan, Jace and Arya Parks of Rifle.

Life Celebration Services will be held at 11:00 a.m. Saturday, February 16 at Mosaic Church, 3451 23rd Avenue, Evans with a reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, Grandma Dee and Grandpa Ric would request that contributions be made to the Jillian and Caleb Rogers Education Fund (checks can be made out to Morgan Stanley) in care of Adamson Life Celebration Home, 2000 47th Ave., Greeley, CO 80634.

Dee will always be remembered in my heart as a great neighbor. The yard was always beautiful and I could always count on a smile from her when I saw her outside while visiting my mom across the street in LaSalle. My condolences to her family.
