DeAnna Faye Rogers

     DeAnna Faye Rogers, the daughter of John Wyatt Musgrave and Bonnie Lucille (Brown) Musgrave, was born on February 5, 1952 at Poe Clinic, Dexter, MO. and died on September 10, 2020 at the age of 68 and was carried by her Angel to the place Jesus called Paradise.

     She had several occupations during her life as a clothing inspector for Elders Manufacturing, as a cook for the Dexter Senior Center as a cook for Dexter Middle School. She then devoted her days to child care for her own grandchildren, family and neighbor children and even children needing a place to stay, as her home and her heart were open. She served the Keller Public Library, Children’s Program and received the “Friend of the Year” award in 2015. She was also Corporate Secretary for her husband’s Architectural Office.

     She was baptized to the Kingdom of God at First Baptist Church in Dexter, MO. and after marriage became a member of the Community Church of Christ in Lowndes, MO. and served in the Ladies Club for several years. She loved our Lord God and placed her trust, faith and future in his hands.

Her favorite colors were yellow, brown and blue. Her favorite radio stations were Willie’s Roadhouse and Joel Osteen (quite a combination!). She had no favorite children as they were all equally and specially loved by her.

     She had a multitude of friends for she was friendly and much loved as she loved much. She was devoted to her children and grandchildren and dedicated to helping them achieve their best. Although not wealthy, she knew she could leave them a good name, a character of integrity and an example for living, which is the greatest inheritance of real value one could give or receive. Kindness extended, Help given and Love shared sums up her life.
