Personal Quote:

[speaking in 1992 of husband Roy Rogers] We hit it off together because he's so much like my brother. I mean, Roy's like I am, and that's it.


Daughter Robin Elizabeth Rogers was born in August of 1950. She died two days shy of her second birthday.

Son John David, nicknamed Sandy, died at the age of 18 while in the army and stationed in Germany.

Daughter Debbie, originally named In Ai Lee, who was of Korean and Puerto Rican ancestry, die in a bus crash at the age of twelve. See more »
