Patricia A. Rogers
GRAY - Patricia A. Rogers, of Gray, died peacefully in her sleep on June 12, 2017, after a long battle with cancer.
Pat was born Aug. 18, 1936, to Ernest H. Fickett and Julia (Snow) Fickett, of Pownal. She attended school in Pownal and New Gloucester.
She married Fred A. Rogers on April 8, 1956, and they worked together at Opportunity Farm for Boys, and then at Pineland Center until retirement. She was in the grandparent program at Memorial School in New Gloucester, where she enjoyed her status as "Grammy Pat" for several years. She enjoyed knitting, and many new mothers received a blanket or a sweater set compliments of her needles. She was proficient enough to receive ribbons and/or money prizes at Cumberland and Oxford fairs.
Pat is survived by her son Ernest and his lifelong partner of 20 years, Heather Phinney, with whom she has lived for the last several years; also, John and Debbie Conrad, of Oxford, who were family not of blood, but of love. Pat is also survived by her two sisters, Barbara Bryant, of Auburn; and Clara Neal and husband Dean, of New Gloucester; one brother, Roger Fickett, and his wife Denise, of Sabattus; granddaughters, Becky Piechowski and husband Micheal and children Danielle, Kaylee, Dylan, Ava, Jordan, Jacob and Baily, of Georgetown; and Jessica Armstrong and husband Egan, of Winthrop; and numerous nieces and nephews. Pat had a special relationship with her sister-in-law Deanna. She will be extremely missed by her fur grandbabies Lady, Paris and Barkley, exceptionally for her soothing words in inclement weather and the time they spent together.
Also a special thanks to Avis Ford and the Androscoggin Home Hospice team for all they did.
Pat was predeceased by her husband Fred; her parents; four brothers, Robert, Donald, Bruce and David; and one sister, Marilyn Tripp.
Services will be held at the Poland Baptist Church at 10 a.m. Friday, June 16. Private burial service will be at a later date.
