Anna Mae Rogers


Each day comes yielding its own gifts and on May 6, 1941, God untied the ribbons of a precious gift to Henry Caldwell and Ella Mae Sutton in Kansas City, Kansas. The proud parents named her Anna Mae Caldwell. Ann was a spirited and curious child who embraced life choosing to be kind and loving so that on July 11, 2022, she could take the Master’s hand and walk into glory without fear.

Ann graduated from Sumner High School in Kansas City, KS. She furthered her education taking classes at Penn Valley     Community College. She worked several jobs before gaining  employment with Tension Envelope Co where she remained for over 30 years. She retired as a specialty plate maker and also served as a union representative.

Ann committed her life to Christ and was baptized at Spruce St. Matthew Baptist Church in June 1985. She faithfully attended Sunday School and served as Health Unit President for many years.  She also served on the Courtesy Committee, the Outreach Committee, the Finance Committee, and as church clerk.

Ann married Thomas Johnson on July 23, 1960, and to this    union, her only child, Carla Johnson, was born. The marriage was dissolved March 31, 1965. On July 16, 1984, she married her current husband, Ernest Ray Rogers.

Ann was preceded in death by her parents, Henry Caldwell and Ella Mae Silas; brother, Lloyd Silas; and sisters, Maxine Sutton, Alma Mosby, Gladys Garrett, and Wilma Silas.

Ann stepped up to become the primary caregiver for her mother when she became disabled. She showed this same love and      concern for her family and friends, as evidenced by her many acts of kindness. She was outgoing and friendly with a great sense of humor, and really enjoyed a good joke.

While some of her memories may have been cloudy at times, she always remembered her love for God. 

The precious memories of Anna Mae Rogers will be forever cherished by her husband, Ernest Ray Rogers; her “girls”,  daughter, Carla Johnson, granddaughter, Aviance Johnson,  great granddaughter, Avahlee Cunningham-Gray, nieces that she loved and cherished like daughters, Phyllis (Al) Moore, Stephanie Silas, Shawna Silas, and Monique Silas, and great- great-nieces, James Kennedy Crockett, and Adriauna Silas, and great-nephew, Tyler Silas; Ann is also survived by her step-children, Ernest Rogers Jr., Anthony Rogers, Jerome (Jan)     Rogers, and Rosalyn Rogers, and a host of grandchildren,  nephews, nieces, many other family, and friends.
