‘Jesus put a yodel in her soul.’ Dorothy “Marie” Rodgers, 85, saw her Savior face to face on August 9, 2017. There will be no service at this time at the request of the family. A tribute of Marie’s life may be found at andersonbethany.com where you may leave memories and expressions of sympathy for her family.
Marie was born on December 26, 1931, in Clarinda, Iowa, to Arthur and Gladys Freemyer. In 1951, she married the love of her life, David ‘Terry’ Rodgers, who preceded her in death. If Marie was involved in something, it was with great passion. Her dedication to her Heavenly Father was known by all who knew her, first and foremost. A very close second was her husband, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Marie was a tireless homemaker, even being awarded by the Home Extension Agency as a Master Cook. She spent countless hours volunteering for her church and Cowboy Camp Meetings. Marie will long be remembered for her ‘Yodel.’ She loved to sing, sew, read and feed wild birds.
A small bundle of a woman with so much love to give – whether in her mountain home, to the people of Weed and her church family, or to the many people whose lives she touched over the 85 years she lived on this earth. She was a true reflection of God’s love.
Surviving to cherish and honor Marie’s memory are sons: Layne Rodgers and wife, Ellen, David Rodgers and wife, Vickie; daughter, Jerusha Tucker and husband, Kevin; eight grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
