Marianne Rogers Obituary, Death- We are saddened to share the news of the demise of Marianne P. Rogers, or “Mare” as she was known to her loved ones. On September 18, 2023, Marianne passed away at Thomas Jefferson Hospital with her family at her side.
The daughter of Theresa (nee: Myers) and the late Harry Lord, she entered the world on February 24, 1963. Before moving to Glendora, New Jersey, Marianne was a beloved member of the South Philadelphia neighborhood. Marianne was a proud member of the Parkway High School “Class of 1981.”
She worked tirelessly as Unique Industries’ Customer Service Manager for a long time because the job gave her so much satisfaction. Her dedication to quality was evident to everyone she worked with and served. Marianne’s biggest pleasure came from being with her family, although she also enjoyed shopping, making crafts, and watching television in her spare time.
Her compassion was limitless, and she was adored for her wit, wisdom, and dry sense of humor. She had a heart of gold and was always putting the needs of others before her own. Marianne Rogers was David’s devoted wife for 33 blissful years. Throughout his childhood, she showed Ian (Amanda) Rogers nothing but love and devotion as his mother.
Marianne was a proud godmother to Michael Rutter, Jr., and a loving sister to Denise Lauer, Terri Revak, and Tina (Michael) Rutter. On Tuesday, September 26, 2023, from 8:00 AM to 10:15 AM, her family and friends are welcome to pay their respects at the Murphy Ruffenach, Brian W. Donnelly Funeral Home, 2239 S. 3rd Street, Philadelphia, PA 19148.
Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church will host a funeral mass at 10:30 a.m. The burial will be a solemn, family-only event. The world is a darker place without Marianne here, but the people who were lucky enough to call her friend will carry her spirit with them forever. She left a legacy of love and selflessness, and the lives she touched will never be the same.
The family begs that memorial contributions be given in Marianne’s name to a charity of your choosing in lieu of flowers as a fitting tribute to her enduring spirit and the kindness she exhibited to others. Marianne’s time here on Earth may be over, but the love she shared and the lives she touched will endure forever. She deserves peace and quiet.
