Margaret Rose (Donald) Rogers
Born in Vernon, FL on 27 November 1946 and departed life, 8 October 2022
She loved spending time with her family and friends. In her younger years she loved to dance and being the life of the party having a good time. Later in life she loved going to the Beach every chance she got to listen to her gospel music and meditate. Throughout her life she was always willing to help others and often volunteered at Church and different community centers throughout St Petersburg. She was always trying give you something …..a meal, a bible verse, advice, clothing, a compliment or whatever she had to give. She was a giving person. She was often called a “Diva” by many because she definitely kept up with the latest styles throughout her life. One of her favorites was Denim. You would always see her with a denim outfit and coordinated accessories. She loved to dress. She is known for many things but of most of which is how big her Heart was. She was a loving person through and through.
She was preceded in death by her husband Henry Rogers, her parents Willie James and Aggie Mae Donald, son Craig Donald and siblings, Timothy Donald, Willie Frank Donald, Gloria Mills, and Herman Donald.

She was known as “Auntie Margaret” by a host of nieces and nephews. She was the “cool” auntie. She loved all of them, but she had a special bond with Tonya Dallas (who she called her first daughter), Miranda Lovett who named “Judy” and Mareka Lovett who she was very protective of when she was a baby.
She had many special friends who she called family through every chapter of her life! She called them her childhood family, her Williston family and her Chiefland family. There are too many to mention, but they all were very dear to her.
