Beloved wife, mother, sister and friend, Lizabeth Cheryl Rogers died peacefully Oct. 10, 2019, in Lakeside. She was born Nov. 20, 1949, in Henderson, Nevada.

Animated, vivacious, and fun, Liz was loved by all who knew her. She had an innate capacity to make everyone around her feel appreciated and important. Her most beloved attribute was her ability to make each person she interacted with feel that they were the most interesting individual in the world.

She was a true and devout member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She served faithfully in many callings throughout her life and was an amazing spiritual example to all who knew her and served with her.
Liz enjoyed sewing, quilting, knitting, crocheting, cooking, and baking. She was extremely talented in each of these areas and was well known for her creative accomplishments.
Her kindness, compassion, and love will forever linger in the hearts of all who knew her.
