Obituary For Vivian Louise Rogers

Vivian Louise Rogers returned home to be with the Lord on April 22, 2021. She passed away peacefully in her Wheatland, WI home at the age of 76.

Louise was born in Chicago, IL on July 6, 1944 to Vivian Louise Richardson and Donald Walter Loveless. She was a strong woman of faith and a disciple of God. She was a devoted mother, grandmother, and friend who has left a mark on the lives of many. While Louise had six children of her own, she also took several others under her wing throughout her lifetime. Being that her and her siblings were in foster care themselves, and because she had a heart of gold, Louise was always an advocate for helping those in need. She even held a community ambassador title with NISP to make a difference in local communities. In her free time, Louise enjoyed spending time with friends and family, crafting, thrift shopping and flee markets. She also had an avid collection of flamingos, palm trees and tropical knick knacks.

In addition, Louise was employed with the Community Action Partnership office in Round Lake, IL, as well as the Lake Forest Tollway Oasis in Lake Forest, IL. She was always recognized for her strong work ethic and her amazing ability to work with with people. Louise was a social butterfly. In her retirement days, she enjoyed taking care of her customers while bartending and earned her nickname, “Weezie”.

Louise will be always remembered for her remarkable kindness, her wisdom, her generosity, her stories, her amazing sense of humor and her unfailing love. Her memory will be cherished and lived on by her children; Tony Rogers, Pam Rogers-Manning, Donald Rogers Jr. (Brenda), Bubba Rogers (Dawn), Jim Rogers, Amanda Rogers (Andrew), Mark Manning and Loretta Harrington, as well as her grandchildren; Mark (Dani), Mandi (Leighton), Michelle (Justin), Matthew, Jeremy, Morgan, Krystal, Joey, Brandon, Michael, Bridgette, Jimmy, Cody, Michaela, Grace, Kyle, Nate, Jaqi, her great grandchildren; Maliyah, Marky, Layla, Lyle and her siblings; Roy Loveless (Kathy), Donald Loveless and John Barnes, in addition to many amazing nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Louise was preceded in death by her husband; Donald Rogers, her parents; Vivian Richardson-Loveless, Pearl and Donald Loveless, her siblings; Donna Lee Walker and Donna Rose Barnes, her grandson; Montana and her great grandson; Caleb.

Rather than holding traditional funeral services, friends and family are invited to “Live It Up for Louise” to celebrate her beautiful life and legacy on Sunday, May 9, 2021. The celebration will be held at 2pm at Bender’s Bar and Grill in Silver Lake - 409 E Northwater St, Silver Lake, WI.

    As I read this I fell apart. I knew her so we'll I knew every word that was written in her here. She was all of that and more. There wouldn't be enough space to describe the impact she had on so many.It took until today before I could bring myself to read it. I knew if I read it it would be real and final. But that is not true though, it is not final. It was Mama that instilled that in me. This is our temporary home and one day I hope I am honored enough to rejoice again in our Forever Home together. Louise was a Super Hero unlike the ones made up in Hollywood. She was the real life version. If you knew her well you could agree she wasn't your average woman. If I leave this Earth just to be an ounce of the woman she was. I could rest with that. There are few I have ever known that could hold a candle to her. Her flame is not out it is burning brighter now than ever after she walked into her eternal home to the Lord. I love you Mama
