Elsie May Rodgers, 72, went to join our Heavenly Father March 1, 2013, at her home in Medford, Ore. She was born December 26, 1940, in Bakersfield, Calif. to Preston Worn Owen and Mary Rose Da Costa. She was a mother, grandma, great-grandma, and a friend to many.

On October 13, 1989, Elsie married her love, Ron L. Rodgers. Together they lived in Anaheim, Calif. until they moved to Redding, Calif. in 1990 when she retired from work in electronics. Elsie impacted lives with hugs and God's love wherever she went. Her legacy of love and hugs will go on and on. She moved to Medford in 2004, and shortly after found her church home at Central Point Assembly. She made many friends whom she considered family.

Elsie is survived by her three children, Debbie Harder, Clarissa Cvetan, and Ron Mendoza. She was preceded in death by husband, Ron.

We ask that friends and family join us for Elsie's celebration of life at 11:30 a.m., Saturday, March 9, 2013, at Central Point Assembly, 310 N. 10th St., Central Point, OR 97502, 541-664-3353. www.roguevalleyfunerals.com
