Barbara Ann Rodgers passed away on March 17, 2013 at the age of 64.
She was born Oct. 7, 1948 in Wilmington, Delaware to Harold and Carol Rudgers. She moved to Cottage Grove over 30 years ago, where she raised her children.
She was known for her help getting people sober, working as a drug and alcohol counselor in Cottage Grove and the surrounding area.
Barbara was a loving mother and grandmother. Above all she cared deeply about her entire family, as well as all her friends. She loved her dogs, being in the woods, reading and being with family and friends.
Survivors include her son, Shane Rodgers and his family of Hopkinsville, Kentucky, and her daughter, Jennifer Rodgers and her family of Cottage Grove.
She will always be remembered for her dedication to family and her pure drive for life. Now she is freed to dance with the wolves.
There will be a potluck celebration of life on Saturday, April, 27 at 3 p.m. in Coiner Park.
Arrangements under the care of Buell Funeral Chapel, Springfield.
