Julie Will Be Missed

By Nicole Tull

Julie Rogers lived her life in such a way as to make it seem effortless. She excelled in everything she touched. No doubt it was a credit to her faith. She was a shining example of a Proverbs 31 lady. Her husband did not lack anything from her, and he trusted his heart with her. She was a devoted wife to Chip and honored his name even after he passed in 2010.

Julie and a friend are shown sitting outside the Tourist Commission office, relaxing in a sea of bubbles, during a Mardi Gras Celebration.

She worked with willing hands and extended them to offer service where needed. Her work ethic was that of integrity. You could depend on the quality of her service being excellent. She worked proactively for the Parish while at the Tourist Bureau. She had good ideas to speak life into the city, towns, and villages. She seemed to love every part of DeSoto. Wherever she lived or work, she brought life to that place. Logansport Chamber members mentioned how grateful they are for her support of their festivals and events.

Julie was clothed in strength and honor. Her mouth spoke wisdom. Her children called her blessed. She passed on her gracefulness to her daughter, Catherine, who exemplifies her mother so well. Julie encouraged her son Carson to be the man God created him to be. She wanted her children to be successful in business, relationships, and life in general.

She was certainly charming and beautiful, but it was the fear of the Lord in Julie that was most evident. She was never just a work associate or business partner. Julie was a friend to all she met. She was every part of the fruit of the Spirit – loving, joyful, peaceful, patient, kind, good, faithful, gentle and had temperance. She was a good and faithful servant. The Lord has surely said, well done. She will be missed by all who knew her.
