November 11, 1958 - February 2, 2019
Mrs. Catherine Rogers of High River, Alberta passed away at the South Calgary Health Campus on February 2nd, 2019 at the age of 60 years. Catherine is survived by her son Robert, daughter Samantha, mother Gail Barry, and her four brothers F.J., John, Michael, and Martin Barry. Catherine is predeceased by her husband, Bill Rogers. Catherine was born in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania and moved to Canada with her son, daughter, and husband to start a new life in Southern Alberta. Catherine was instrumental as CFO and VP of Western Financial Group, helping to build the company from a small local insurance brokerage office in High River into the largest brokerage business in Western Canada. At every stage of her remarkable career she excelled both as a business professional and as a friend to her many colleagues. As a mother, Catherine was an extremely kind and caring soul. Nothing came before family, and at every opportunity Catherine was keen to take advantage of the time she could spend with her children. She was the closest thing to a surrogate mother for many in the community, and although her exceptional dedication to her career kept her busy, Catherine always made sure that the family and friends she held so dear were well looked after. Catherine would often state that her only wish was to leave this world a better place than when she arrived. Her lifetime of charity and selflessness is a testament of her success. Her memory lives on amongst those of us fortunate enough to have known her in life. She will be profoundly missed. In keeping with Catherine’s wishes her ashes will be taken back home to Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. In lieu of flowers, the Rogers family asks that you donate to the Canadian Mental Health Association. Caring for the family is Lyle Reeves Funerals of High River (Craig Snodgrass) 403.652.4242.
