Barbara Ann Rogers (nee Hamlin), passed away Tuesday, September 1, 2020 at the age of 86. Loving wife of Charles for over 68 years. Barbara was born October 27, 1933, the oldest child of the late Albert and Edith Hamlin; beloved mother of Dianne (Nick) Walls, Bill (Sandy) Rogers, Dan (Alison) Rogers and Patty (Mike) Maddox; adored grandmother of 10: Meredith Ramsey, Katie (Shane) Schmucker, Alison (Don) Lisi, Carla (Brad) Ballard, Matt (Erica) Rogers, Kelly Rogers, Peyton Rogers, Tanner Rogers, Chuck Gullett and Dustin Gullett; beloved great-grandmother of 14: Emilie, Hannah, Tyler, Nicholas, Ava, Addyson, Anna, Nora, Dillon, Mackenzie, Reid, Hayes, Danny and Dublin; devoted sister of the late Irwin Hamlin, Tom (Shirley) Hamlin, Howard (the late Mary) Hamlin, Jackie (Steve) Vaughn, Linda (Rich) Pieper and Duke (Donna) Hamlin; sister-in-law of Joan Hamlin, and Don (Jane) Rogers; cherished mother-in-law, aunt, great-aunt, great-great-aunt, cousin and friend to many.

Above all else in her life, Barbara’s family was her most treasured possession. She loved her times and travels with her husband, holidays and visits with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  She looked forward traveling to see children participate in sporting activities, musical productions, awards programs, and whatever was going on!  She enjoyed family reunions, as well as the Brothers & Sisters get-togethers.  In her younger years, she played the piano both at church and for her enjoyment.  She also enjoyed quilting, flower gardening, feeding (and feeding) her family, and music.  For ten years, Barbara served as President of the Ladies Auxiliary of the American Legion Post in Union, Missouri.  She touched the lives of all everyone she knew, and she will be greatly missed.

A Celebration of Life will take place at a time to be announced later.

Memorial contributions may be made in Barbara's name to St. Jude Children’s Hospital or Shriner’s Children’s Hospital.

    candle 2I remember many Saturday mornings watching Grandma cook. When she got her new expensive blender she even let me use it a couple of times. Every time we played Spoons, or played the organ with me, or attempted to show me quilt making those memories were embedded in my heart. I love you Grandma. Thank you for 42 years of memories and love.

    She was my mother in law for 46 years. She was so very kind and one of the most selfless people I have ever known. She made me feel part of her family from the first day I married her amazing daughter. My wife Dianne is just like her mother and will carry her legacy on. Barbs family is an awesome family , Barb raised an amazing four kids. Hr grandkids loved her so much and I can still see all the awsome times they had playing cards with their grandmother. God has added a wonderful soul to his heaven. I am a better person for knowing Barb.

    Aunt Barbara had such a sweet disposition, we all are so lucky she was in our lives in some way. She raised a fantastic family. The fight is over and I have comfort knowing Aunt Barb is waiting, along with our family that have already passed, for us to arrive in our final destination to be with our Heavenly Father.
