She was born in Windfall on Sept. 30, 1942, to Jesse and Louise (Smith) Rogers.
Pat graduated from Windfall High School in 1960. She began a career at GM Delco, became a proud UAW member and retired in July 1998.
Pat was a devoted mother to three ornery boys. She was a life-long mentor and confidant to many. She was a loving, strong gal that always put others first. Family was the most important thing to Pat. She was also involved in helping her community as a member of Tipton We Shares, 50+ Club, Windfall Park and town boards.
Pat could always be found with a Diet Coke and a book. Reading was her favorite pastime. She was an on the go person who was full of life and spunk. She was always encouraging to those around her. She will be greatly missed by those whose lives she touched deeply.
