Susie May Rogers Shivley, 104, of Ft. Collins, Colo., passed away October 28, 2010.

She was born September 29, 1906 to Jesse Anderson Rogers and Bertha Jane Wickliff Rogers in Norton, Kan. She was the fourth of seven children. They moved to Joes, Colo., after she completed high school in Burroa, Kan. Her father, sister Sadie, and Sadie’s husband Ray Sloniker came ahead with three head of cattle. The rest of the family traveled in a Model T Ford, holding a bowl of goldfish Susie’s younger sister refused to leave behind.

Susie married Ernest Shivley February 1, 1928 staying in Joes, Colo., to farm. They added Marion E. and Iris to the family. They knew great hardship in their lifetime – sleeping with the babies to keep them warm, and the bottles in the beds to keep the milk from freezing. When Susie and Ernest sold the farm and moved to Wray, Colo., they tore down the house and used the lumber to build their home on Hale street. They had a lot of help from their two grandsons, Mark and Doyle, like when they set leaves on fire in the house and smoked everyone out.

Susie worked at Renotta Nursing Home as a cook and did laundry. She loved the elderly, and missed them when she retired. Playing cards with neighbors and friends was a favorite past time, as well as baking pies and cakes. Susie’s cooking was legendary. When her family came for a visit, she would cover the table with delicious homemade goodies. Susie loved her grandchildren and was estatic when the great-grandkids began to arrive, because she never thought she would see the day. Susie also enjoyed sewing, and embroidered pillowcases and quiltblocks, gifting her family with these beautiful items.

When Ernest passed away, Susie sold their home, and moved to WrayVen Manor. There she spent many happy hours with friends over coffee and her much welcomed cakes and pies.

Susie moved to Ft. Collins, Colo., to live with her daughter Iris and son-in-law Clyde Gardner a year and a half ago. There, she made a new friend- a poodle named Corky, who was her devoted companion until her death.

She is survived by daughter Iris Gardner and her husband Clyde; sister Ruby Smit, daughter-in-law Majorie Shivley; five grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren, 12 great-great-grandchildren; numerous nieces and nephews, friends and neighbors.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Jesse and Bertha Rogers, brothers Bill, Jess and Ed Rogers, sisters Sadie Sloniker and Leta Maag, son Marion Shivley, spouse Ernest Shivley and grandson Mason Shivley.

Memorial services were held November 6, 2010 at the First Christian Church in Wray, Colo.

Interment was in Grandview Cemetary in Wray, Colo.

Memorial contributions may be made to the American Heart Association.
