Rachel T. (Cogliano) Rogers

A funeral mass was celebrated for Rachel T. (Cogliano) Rogers, in St. Anthony of Padua Church, Revere, followed by interment at Holy Cross Cemetery, Malden.  Mrs. Rogers passed after a lengthy illness at her daughter’s home in North Revere, with whom she made her home, on Thursday, May 12th, at 103 years.  Born in Boston on October 28th, 1912, she would have been 104 years old in October.  The family moved to Chelsea, where Mrs. Rogers attended school, and then later spent over 30 years in Everett, before moving to Revere in 1977.  Mrs. Rogers was widowed in January of 1954, leaving her as a single Mom.  She worked in her early years at Chelsea’s former “Everlastic” Company & then joined the work force at TRW Car Fasteners for over 20 years, retiring from there in 1977.  Always a worker and energetic woman, she soon tired of retirement & in 1987 rejoined the work force at Burger King of Chelsea, as a sale’s clerk.  She held the position until turning 83 years in 1995.  And that was only because of her family’s demand that she stop working.  She was indeed a member of “the greatest generation” and her daughter, son-in-law, & grandsons are true testimony.  She was the wife of the late, Arthur F. Rogers.  She was the adored & cherished Mother of, Marie T. “Terry” Sadowski & her husband, Samuel J. Sadowski of North Revere, with whom she made her home.  She is the cherished Grandmother of: Jeffrey J. Sadowski & his wife, Robyn of Salisbury, MA, & Christopher J. Sadowski of Revere.  She was the sister of the late: Maria DeFrancesco, Antonetta Woods, Assunta Finnegan, Domenic, Ralph, Nicholas, & John Cogliano.  She is also lovingly survived by many nieces, nephews, grand-nieces & grand-nephews.

Remembrances may be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, P.O. Box 1000, Dept. 142, Memphis, TN 38101-9908.
