Deborah Jean Rogers entered Heaven’s gates on Friday, June 21, 2019 at the age of 66. The daughter of Norma (Ganus) and LeRoy Carlile, Deborah was born August 2, 1952 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. After graduating from Western Heights High School in 1971, Deborah married the love of her life, Michael Rogers and and the two were married for nearly 50 years. This union of marriage was blessed with two sons, Michael and Steven. In addition to being a loving wife, devoted mother and dedicated homemaker, Deborah also worked for the Oklahoma State Department of Health. In her spare time, Deborah enjoyed many different hobbies including sewing, knitting, and traveling, especially when they were vacations to the beach. She was also an avid bowler who bowled in a number of different leagues throughout the years. Deborah’s greatest joy in life, however, was the countless hours she spent with her family and especially her grandchildren. They were the apple of her eye. Deborah was a kind, caring, and outgoing person, whose compassion led her to her career with indigent care programs. Deborah will be remembered for the love and support that she gave everyone. Although we will miss her presence here with us on earth each day, we rejoice in knowing we will be reunited with her one day again.
