Sarah Lou Rogers
SARAH LOU ROGERS Sarah Lou Rogers, a resident of O'ahu for over 50 years, died due to complications of Alzheimer's disease on March 11, 2016. She had come to the islands in 1964 as a Southern Baptist missionary for a year - and never left. She loved these islands and all the people in them, but most of all she loved and served the Lord every day of her life. Miss Rogers was born April 21, 1933 in Vina, Alabama, to the late Theopolis Eugene Rogers and Winnie Davis Ethridge. She graduated from Glencoe High School in 1951, earned a B.S. from Howard College (now Samford University) in 1955, an M.R.E. from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in 1958, and a Ph.D. in Psychotherapy in 1974. She was a life-long learner. Despite her exhaustive resume, Sarah often said that her only real talent was loving people; and that's what she did every single day, in so many ways, around the globe, and here at home, until she could do it no more. My dear Sarah never married, and was an only child. She is survived by her hanai family - the Sipos family - and of course by thousands of students from Kahuku, Waipahu, Leeward, OCCC, and countless people and friends whose lives she undoubtedly touched. I know she touched mine - from the moment I was born. She lives in me and through me. I loved her every day and I love her still. Lara Graveside service to be held at Mililani Memorial Park on Saturday, July 16th at 10:30 am.
