Lillian Dorthy Penrose Rogers passed away Sunday, July 27th, one month before her 88th birthday.

She is survived by Joe, her husband and partner of 72 years, her daughters, JoAnn Isaacson and Darlene Emglish, her son, Eugene Rogers, and 8 Grandchildren, 21 Great Grandchildren, and 6 Great Great Grandchildren.

Lillian and Joe moved from Schurz, NV to Chester, CA in 1947, where they lived and raised their family. Lillian worked as a waitress for many years, until Joe retired from Collins Pine and they moved back to Schurz. She enjoyed traveling, family gatherings, and her status as a respected elder of the Walker River Paiute Tribe. Lillian was admired and respected by so many for her dignity and valor as she dealt with long term illness. Her presence is missed by all who knew and loved her.
