Geraldine Marie Rogers, age 81, passed away on Wednesday, August 4, 2021 at Sunrise of Severna Park in the presence of her two daughters and loving Sunrise staff. Geraldine, or Gerry as everyone knew her, was born April 14, 1940 in Baltimore to her parents Madeline and Roy. The only girl of the bunch, she grew up with one older brother and two younger brothers. She graduated from Annapolis High School in 1959 and was married to her first husband in 1960. She had two daughters who she loved very much. In 1974, Gerry married again, to Carl and they had a love that was palpable and hard to forget. They created a happy life together in Pasadena, throwing unforgettable pool parties throughout the warmer months and hosting impeccably decorated holiday parties in the winter. Gerry was left heartbroken for decades after Carl’s death in 1995. A loyal employee, she worked at BWMC (formerly North Arundel Hospital) for 29 years before retiring. Always the trendsetter, many members of her family have worked or currently work at that same hospital. Gerry had a distinct, classic style with a shoe closet and handbag collection most would envy, a sophisticated eye for interior design, an unmatched eye for color, a love for Patsy Cline records, an adoration for Shirley Temple movies, and a sharp wit. Gerry is survived by her three brothers, two daughters, four grandchildren, and four great grandchildren.
