In memory of
Emily Searcy Rogers
Emily S. Rogers, born Mary Emily Searcy, died peacefully in the company of her family in Birmingham, Alabama on November 13, 2020. She was born on September 16, 1921 in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. She was a cradle Episcopalian, and a member of Christ Episcopal Church most of her life. She was an active member and supporter of Girl Scouts of North-Central Alabama. She attended Stephen's College, Radcliff College, and received a BA, BM, and MM from the University of Alabama. She was a member of the U. of A. Cadek String Quartet and founded the String Quartet Society of Tuscaloosa in1990, which brought renowned string quartets to Tuscaloosa twice a year to perform and to provide string education in area schools. She was predeceased by her parents, Dr. Harvey Brown Searcy and Mary Emily Fitts Searcy, her husband, A. Clayton Rogers, and her sister, Anne Searcy Yoder. Emily is survived by her three children: Stephen Clayton Rogers (Robin Rutledge) of Wetumpka, Mary Emily Colvin (Dr. Edward V. Colvin) of Birmingham, and Cynthia Searcy Shearer (Dr. John C. Shearer) of Birmingham. She is also survived by 8 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren, all of whom loved their "Mutti". Emily was a devoted wife and mother, a faithful friend to many, and an accomplished violinist. She was as comfortable driving a tractor in the family pecan orchard as performing on the orchestra stage. The family wishes to thank Compassus Hospice and St. Martin's Care At Home – especially Shirley Jones, Gwen Morris, Sheila Porterfield, Cindy Williams, and Latrice Grant for their devoted and loving care for Emily in the last years of her life. A memorial service and celebration of life will be held at a later date, when the family can gather safely. Memorial gifts may be made in our mother's memory to: St. Martin's Employee Benevolent Fund, 4949 Montevallo Rd, B'ham, AL 35210, or to Strings in Schools, Tuscaloosa Education Foundation, POBox 2347 Tuscaloosa AL 35403
