Jane Rogers' Obituary Page
Jane is now resting in Abraham's bosom. Here is her well written farewell.
M. Jane Rogers
Rogers, M. Jane ( Baudo), earned her eternal
reward on Monday, October 12, 2009. Devoted wife of the late Vincent
G. Rogers; adored mother of Bridget Rogers Yates (Carl Wesley Yates
III), Vincent Gregory (Lynda Gazall) Rogers, Jr., Daniel Joseph
(Tina Nix) Rogers; cherished Nana of Isabella Domenica Yates,
Alexandra Nicole Rogers, Madeline Marie Tippie and Lillian Sophia
Rogers; sister of Josie Castello, Ann Wallace and Sam Baudo and the

Helen Rogers, O.L.V.N., Patricia Simon, Ann Rogers and the late
Joseph Rogers, Lawrence Rogers and Geraldine Rogers; godmother to
Cynthia Patton and Stephanie Stafford; aunt, great-aunt and friend.
The daughter of Vincenzo and Guissepina (Patania) Baudo of Sicily,
Jane grew up on Daggett Ave. on The HIll. Her given name was
Pasqualina Domenica, as she was born on Easter Sunday, 1925. She
legally changed her name as an adult. Before her marriage, Jane
traveled the world both for leisure and as an employee of the former
Kirkland Travel Agency, Air France and TWA. Jane opened and managed
the first Ambassador Club at St. Louis Lambert International
Airport. She married Vincent, the true love of her life in 1959
within six months of their first date. She was a 40 year member of
St. Raphael's Parish, most recently volunteering as a reading tutor
in the grade school. She loved live theater, ranging from Broadway
musicals to any shows in which her granddaughters performed. The
true measure of Jane's success was her love of family, her
commitment to B-V-D. Jane never missed celebrating a birthday, which
always included a card with a dollar bill enclosed and her signature
smiley face. Generous beyond description no one left Jane's home
empty handed and she always brought something to anyone she visited.
Devoted to the Sacred Heart her favorite prayer was Sacred Heart of
Jesus, I place my trust in thee. Please say it in her memory.
