I can never find an angel like Ginny. We were two free spirits giving our time and passion to SAS and the community and Ginny did the most. Ginny has such an abundance of energy and she is a true example of "giving and not asking". She raised two very fine boys and guess what? I luck out! I got Matt as my son in law. It was a pleasure to be with her always. She had such a cheerful personality and such inspirations. She took a big part of me when she left us.

I first met Ginny at Ft. Sill, Oklahoma in 1972. From the moment I met her I knew she would be a great friend, and she was. We met up again in Monterrey in 1976 and remained friends through all the subsequent years, even though we mostly lived miles away from one another. Ginny displayed the true meaning of friendship. She was witty, compassionate, caring, loving and always full of good advice. There are always a few wonderful stories that good friends share. I loved Ginny’s stories and shared them with many of my friends through the years. The stories were funny and illustrated what a unique and amazing woman she was. She leaves a huge void in the lives of all who knew and loved her. I am so grateful for having known and loved her! Bless you Ginny.

To all the Rogers Family, This is devastating for all of you. I am so sorry! My heart hurts also. This woman was so incredible, from that hair, those sparkling eyes, her smile and that little giggle. She’d be telling you something, this giggle would come out and oh! You knew something funny and entertaining was going to be said and I listened with all ears. We met as neighbors but she became my lifelong friend. When we didn’t see each other it was as no time had passed. We picked up right were we left off! I’m sure she made all who new here feel the same way. This glorious woman had the most generous spirit. Her door always open and welcoming. Such a true friend, always there to listen, to give the best advice. Far wiser than I could ever be. Open house, open arms, pure love. I know she loved her family with her whole heart! Though she is gone her love for you remains, and always will. She lives within your heart, her spirit guides you still. How I will miss this generous person, spirit ,friend and that little giggle. I have a beautiful angel candle lit and raising my glass. Doug, Matt, Mike, I am thinking of you everyday. Love, Robin

Thank you Ginny for gracing our lives as a mother. You & Doug raised truly loving accomplished gentlemen- who are now sharing your lessons on being a wonderful person with their families. Thank you Ginny for all the tremendous love and support you genuinely offered to hundreds of students, teachers, coaches, principals and community members at the Singapore American School. You were an awesome teacher in Gamma. SAS was a very wonderful place because of you. Thank you Ginny for being so welcoming and supportive of Merika and Nikolaus throughout their years at SAS and beyond. May God give me the ability to be like you - a loving supportive accomplished mother,wife, teacher, neighbor, friend. God sent you here for such a short time but you gave us so many examples for how to live the best way throughout years on few years on earth.

Ginny showed us a rare combination of beauty, charm, intelligence, fun and deep humanity. She was the heart and soul of a special family that cast a wide footprint on the earth. She made our world a much better place.

To my dear friend Ginny, it is so hard to put into words the loss of your presence in the world means to me. You were a very special person - strong, determined, smart, caring, kind. We shared an intense love of all children and our families. Our friendship was built on that foundation. l will miss our long phone calls, the camaraderie and the laughter - yes, especially the laughter. Love, hugs and prayers to Doug, Matt, Mike and families.

Mrs. Rogers, thank you for being an integral part of my extended Singapore family. I will always cherish the endless number of memories I have with you and your family, and the love you provided throughout. Particularly my time in North Carolina when you provided a home away from home, and a mother figure to talk to when times were rough. To the best of my ability, I will raise my daughter to be as strong, intelligent, independent, fun and loving as you were.

Ginny was SO beautiful, inside & out! Her brilliant smile, warm heart, and quick wit made her a woman we all wanted to join in the next adventure. She and Doug created such a great family - love & laughter always! She was so proud of Matt & Mike, and loved seeing them building their own families, rewarding her with grandchildren who made life even more fun. We loved Ginny too, and miss having her here with us. A terrific woman, gone way too soon~ Love to all of the Rogers Clan

Mrs. Rogers was a constant on the SAS campus when myself and my brothers were growing up. From cheering us on and off the court to just having a good old family dinner. When i moved to college they also moved to NC and welcomed me into their home whenever I felt homesick or just wanted to get off campus. It was alot! She was my 2nd mom for those years and she holds a special place in my heart and always will. She will be greatly missed and will always be loved.

Mrs. Rogers always welcomed me with a warm embrace and genuine curiosity about my wellbeing -- even the first time we met! It was as if we went way back. I loved that about her, and I use her as an inspiration to try to do the same for the people in my life.

She was a constant comforting presence for so many kids on SAS courts/fields and in classrooms, including those not her own!

Ginny was one one of the first parents to welcome me and my family to Singapore. I will always remember her smile and her presence at all the IASAS games and tournaments cheering us on. She was one of a kind and will be missed.

Ginny led by example. She showed us all what it means to be a great friend and how to care of one another. I had the privilege of working with Ginny at Hudson Martin Ferrante & Street for a number of years. I will always think of her with a smile on my face. She will be missed by everyone. Hugs and prayers for her family.
