Natalie Gail Rogers

Born in Chicago, IL on November 26, 1955

Departed on January 2, 2022 and resided in Covington, GA

Natalie was the second of nine children born to Nathaniel Rogers Sr. and Mary Alice Rogers on November 26, 1955, in Chicago, Illinois.

Natalie was educated through the public school system in Chicago, Illinois and graduated from Lindbloom High School in 1974. She loved to read and was studious.

Natalie met Michael Thomas in 1969. They became best friends and married on November 12, 1974. They bore two children Natalia Deborah Jackson and Nathan Everett Rogers. Although they later divorced, they remained good friends and spoke often up until her death.

To many Natalie was a beautiful person on the outside, but she was kind and gentle on the inside as well. She always tried her best to support everyone. Growing up, among her close friends, she was affectionately called “the nice one.” Being a naturally shy person, she always wanted to make others feel comfortable. One way she did this was through her warm smile. She was a loyal friend. One of her special friendships dates all the way back to the fourth grade. Her relationship with family and friends was very precious to her. Although she lived in several places, she always carried the friends she made with her in her heart. She kept in contact with them, and they never doubted that she would support them in any way she could.

One of her most precious relationships was the one she had with her son Nathan. She loved him dearly and would always try her best to never miss a phone call from him. Natalie was best known for being loving, dependable, and generous. Whether it was with her time, resources, or a listening ear. Her brother Nathaniel said one of the things he will miss the most are their phone conversations. Knowing that he won’t be able to pick up the phone and call his sister and talk like they used to.

Natalie loved to sing, dance and act in skits and drama plays. She sang in singing groups “Sisters of Sound” and “Lady G with Real Harmony.” This gave her the opportunity to spend more time with her friends doing the hobbies she loved the most.

Natalie was a spiritual person in search of the truth. One of her close childhood friends Denise Gordon introduced her to Denise Kirk Harris who studied the Bible with her. Denise became a loyal sister/ friend up until her death. Even before she was baptized Natalie didn’t waste any time assisting others to learn the truth from the Bible. She started with her other childhood best friend Gwendolyn Goodwin, who was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses beside her on May 25, 1980.

One of her greatest joys was talking to others about the promises found in God’s word the Bible. This motivated her to expand her ministry to other areas. She lived in Illinois, Alabama, Texas, Mexico and Georgia. During that time, she was so happy, because others were willing to learn about the precious truths from the Bible.

In her later years Natalie battled with health issues, but her love and devotion for Jehovah God never waned. Her love for people moved her to talk to anyone who would listen - doctors, nurses, family - about the wonderful promises for the future outlined in God’s word the Bible. She remained a loyal servant of Jehovah until her death on January 2, 2022.

Her favorite scripture was Acts 24:15 “There is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” Her family and friends long for the day when God will call for her and she will answer his call by awaking from her sleep to reunite with them in the earthly paradise.

Natalie was preceded in death by her father Nathaniel Rogers Sr. and her brother Maurice Daden.

She leaves behind to cherish her memories: her mother Mary Alice Daden, daughter Natalia Deborah (Corey) Jackson, son Nathan Everett Rogers, granddaughter Princess Natalia Rogers, siblings: Veronica Taylor, Nathaniel Rogers Jr, Authur Young (Nina), Timothy Rogers, Angela Daden, Jessica Floyd (Lionel) and James Lee Rogers and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and spiritual family.

      Words cannot express the deep sorrow and pain that I feel with the loss of such a wonderful person. Natalie was a good friend, kind, easy to talk to, she took an interest in people, and I fondly remember the many times we worked in the field ministry. I am looking forward to seeing her again in Paradise. (Acts 24:15) May Jehovah comfort you and the family and give you strength to cope during this difficult time.

    Lester and I are sending our condolences to Natalia, Corey, Nathan and the rest of the Family. When I think of Natalie, I think of qualities such as kindness and supportiveness. She was so mild and gentle even in her speech. I knew her when she was first baptized and we quickly became friends with her and the kids.I know we are speaking in past tense. However, Jehovah view his friends as if they are still living. He promise to remember his friends in the New World to come, which is just around the corner.

      Our deepest condolence to Natalia, Cory, Nathan and the whole Family.
      What beautiful memories you have to comfort you! Although we only knew Sister Rogers for a short time, she became, Momma Rogers to us! We look forward to hearing her kind sweet voice! We truly appreciated seeing her deep friendship with her heavenly Father, God and Friend in action. Yes, not even death can separate Jehovah from his close friend. Momma Rogers is alive in Jehovah’s memory. (Luke 20:38) Very soon, we will joyfully see her reunited with you during Paradise! Until then, we pray that Jehovah continue to comfort & strengthen each of you everyday! Hugs and love!💞

    Natalia, Corey and Nathan,

    We are beyond words in expressing our deepest sympathy for your loss. Though we know imperfection exist—we never expect to face a loss such as this. You will have days when it seems like your tears will not stop flowing, and when it happens, pour out your heart to Jehovah regarding your pain and have unwavering confidence that he will act in your behalf (Philippians 4:6).

    Jehovah and Jesus are the ONLY ones with the power to bring Natalie back—and they will! That hope is real and, trust us, holding on to that hope will get you through your darkest hours. (Acts 24:15). In your mind’s eye—envision seeing your mom walking around the corner—but this time in a healthy and vibrant self. Keep that mental picture!

    We wish we could be there for you in person but pray that you find comfort in the ‘virtual arms’ of those surrounding you. We send our love.

      Natalia and Corey,
      We love you both and offer our sincere condolences in the loss of our Natalie. She truly exemplified those beautiful qualities of mildness, goodness and loyal love. She always thought of others and expressed true love. We will miss her but we know that Jehovah will soon undue all the things that cause us pain. May Jehovah comfort and sustain you. In just a little while, we will see our lovely Natalie smiling. We look forward to welcoming her back!

    It is truly with the heavest of hearts that we will miss Natalie. She proved to be a genuine friend and example of agape, brotherly affection, and deep concern. No doubt Jehovah will miss her prayers and the way she gave him many positive answers to the Devil’s taunts as she withstood one challenge, trial, or dissappointment with full reliance and confidence that Jehovah would make things as good as they.could be – and she was satisfied with that – just like Job.
    Talking with her toward the end of her life was just like talking to her when she was newely baptized – the light of her faith didn’t diminish – a wonderful legacy to be remembered by.

    Natalie is truly a wonderful spiritual sister and friend. As a part of the band and group ‘sisters of sound’ we enjoyed our experience of traveling, singing, laughing and having spiritual conversations together. And, even more good times together. I’m just going to miss her for a short time and so will Jehovah. My deepest condolences to the family! Love you so much!

    Natalia & Corey, Sorry to hear about the loss of your mom, we have very fond memories of her dating back to when we first met in Pioneer school in 92 or 93 and over the years since then we developed a friendship. Even though we were always separated by distance, we were able to pick up where we left off when we came together again. I hope Jehovah the God of comfort is able to help you find a measure of peace during these grievous times. We love y’all and will keep you and your family in our prayers!

    To the family of Sis Natalie Rogers I offer my condolences I remember Natalie as a very caring person. She wanted to help everyone she met in the field service She was one of Jehovah’s faithful workers and she did work hard She helped me to be a better worker too. I know she had the hope of living forever on a paradise earth so hopefully I will see her again.

    Natalie was one of the most beautiful people I’ve had the privilege to know. I remember all the times I got to spend with her at meeting and at her house as a little girl I didn’t know then how much she was helping my mother as she grew to know Jehovah I just knew she loved me and my little brothers. I’m so grateful for her and all that she did because now not only did my mother come to serve Jehovah but so does my family can’t help to be thankful for the part she played in that.

    She was so sweet and I cannot wait to see her in the paradise soon to come.

We do find comfort in knowing our “Nat” was a faithful servant of Jehovah, and is safe in his memory and He will be a loyal friend to her – giving her life in paradise. We must continue the race, and remain faithful to the end in order to see and hug her again. May her rest be short!!
