Myrtle Patricia Rodgers, 76, of Tallassee, passed away December 26, 2021. She was born January 25, 1945, in LaGrange Georgia but moved to Alabama as a child.
Funeral service will be Tuesday, December 28, 2021 at 2 pm at Linville Memorial Funeral Home with Rev. Brandon Hughes officiating. Visitation will be at the funeral home from 12 noon until service time.
Affectionately known as “Pat” or “Granny”, Mrs. Rodgers touched the lives of countless individuals through her selfless generosity and compassion. Pat worked as a tool maker at Dow Technologies/GKN Aerospace from 1986 until she retired in 2006 to become a full-time grandmother/great grandmother.
Pat is preceded in death by her husbands Larry Rodgers (1976)/Rudell Webster (1991) and her son-in-law, Michael Dennis. She is survived by her children Casi Griffith (Ronnie), Cathi-Rodgers Niner (Terry), Cinda Davis (Doug), Cari Dennis (Scotty Curry) and Larry Rodgers; her grandchildren Joe Griffith (Krystina), Jennifer Barnes, Ashleigh Hughes (Brandon), Crystal Hutton (Peter), Whitney Abrams (Bradley), Nicole Weems (Jeremy), Brandon Rodgers, Hunter Dennis, Jeremy Davis (Christina), Chase Richard (Tori), Kellie Arledge, Connor Richard, Matthew Rodgers, Tyler Rodgers, Sierra Rodgers and Christian Richard. She is also survived by her 17 great grandchildren Dylan Harris, Sean Harris, Joel Hughes, Carsen Griffith, Haedon Hughes, Eli Hughes, Madison Hughes, Abbie Hughes, Masyn Griffith, Judah Hughes, Hannah Grace Abrams, Judah Hutton, Izzy Richard, Thomas Hutton, Gabe Abrams, Amelia Richard and Mercy Abrams. This reflects those who called her Mom or Granny as her blood family. The number of others who called her Mom or Granny stretches way beyond what we can list here.
Pat leaves behind a legacy of honesty, integrity, and the heart of Jesus which she demonstrated daily by embracing everyone who stepped into her life with the same selfless, unconditional love she had for her family, showing no partiality or judgment. She is the last of her generation in the Rodgers family and will forever be remembered as the foundation of a strong family bound together by the love of Jesus and a mother who sacrificed endlessly to provide for those she loved so much. As her children and grandchildren, we will strive to continue the legacy of selfless, unconditional love shown to us by the greatest gift we’ve ever received – the gift of our mother.
In lieu of flowers, the family request that donations be made to the COPD Foundation.
