Obituary

Betty Jane Rogers (nee Svec), age 85, passed away from natural causes on November 19, 2019. Betty was a lifelong resident of Avon, Ohio, born to a large family of grape farmers and vintners, the Svecs, of Czech descent. Betty was the youngest and last-living of seven children and devoted to her family. She married Zellie Rogers of Georgia at age 22. Betty was active in the community for many decades as a member of the Avon Women's Club, a member of the Garden Club, a volunteer for the Avon Little League, and a Girl Scout leader. In her time as a Girl Scout leader, she emphasized the importance of skill building and patriotism, going so far as to oversee her troop's tribute to the death of President John F. Kennedy for which the First Lady personally thanked her.

Betty is survived by her children, Dale Rogers of Avon, Ohio, and Janet Lea Rogers Berman of Washington, D.C., and five grandchildren, Rachel, Ryan, and Emily Rogers, and Alice and Liddy Berman.
