Mary Delia was born on February 3, 1933, to James and Delia Wallace in Plainview, Texas. She married Bobby Rogers on September 20, 1952, in Clovis, New Mexico. Mary was an avid Bridge player, playing in many Bridge clubs in Lubbock. She was an avid football fan (Cowboys and Red Raiders) and loved to watch golf on TV. Her favorite meal to make for family gatherings was Chili Cheese Dogs from Wienerschnitzel. She and her late husband Bob traveled by ship, plane or car for many years after Bob's retirement. They were always looking for their next adventure. Ruidoso, NM, and Maui, HI, were favorite destinations. She enjoyed being a Mother, Grandmommie, and Grandmary to her four children, eleven grandchildren and 22 great-grandchildren. She made everyone feel special. Mary was kind and generous and loved so big.
