Glenda Rogers Grogan, resident of Yucaipa, passed away on September 8, 2017. Born in Oklahoma in 1940, she came to California as a toddler with her parents Nadyne and Harris Rogers who have both predeceased her. From her teens, she was always a philanthropist, choosing to help the disadvantaged, starting with the Rainbow Girls. She was the president of the Cypress Jr. Women's Club, a member of the Elks and Red Hat Society. She was the first Exalted Ruler of the Redlands Elks Lodge. She was a member of the Crown of Life Lutheran Church, and her unwavering faith in Jesus Christ was a solace to her daily. She was an RN, most notably during the 80's as a hospice nurse for AIDS patients at a time when even medical professionals were unwilling to treat them. Her sunny disposition and positive attitude will be tremendously missed by her many friends and family.
Glenda is survived by her husband Dan, his children Glesa and Gerrelle; her daughter Beth; sons James Casey, Dana and Samuel; sisters Joyce Brown and Sylvia Rogers; brother-cousin Paul, and 11 adorable grandchildren.

Services will be Monday, September 18 - 11am at Weaver Hughes Mortuary, 33629 Yucaipa Blvd, Yucaipa CA. A Celebration of Life will follow at 2:30pm at the Yucaipa Elks Lodge, 12165 2nd St.

In Lieu of flowers, Glenda has requested that donations be made to: CHEA Major Project c/o Yucaipa Elks Lodge, PO Box 578, Yucaipa CA 92399
