February 24, 1963 - November 10, 2021
Vernetta Von Rogers was born February 24, 1963, in Memphis, Tennessee, to Willie Lee and Margaret E. Rogers. She departed this walk of life on November 10, 2021, at Methodist LeBonheur Health-Care Hospital. She touched the hearts of everyone she knew with her beautiful smile and sense of humor. She was a wonderful caregiver to her family, friends and neighbors in the community. If she knew you were hungry or outdoors, she would feed you and take you into her home. Vernetta confessed a hope in Christ at an early age under the leadership of Pastor Willie Ailsworth at New Hope Baptist Church where she served as a member of the Mother’s Board. She united with her neighborhood sweetheart, Melvin Sparks; and to this union, a wonderful daughter was born, Arzetta Vonshell Stitt. Vernetta Von Rogers will be truly missed by those who love her. She leaves to cherish her life, her beloved daughter, Arzetta Vonshell (Tyjuan) Stitt; granddaughter, Asia Stitt; mother, Margaret E. Rogers Wilson; sisters, Felecia T. Gales and Arlenia L. Rogers; brothers, Willie L. Rogers, Jr. and Fredric T. (Patricia) Rogers; aunts, Henrietta (Wendell) Cody, Linda (Andrew) Britton, Mildred Campbell, Shirley McCoy, Anita K. Williams, Joyce Gordon, and Yvonne Brown; her uncles, Edric Coopwood, Tommie Johnson, Undre Rogers, Willie B. Rogers, and Carl (Christine) Johnson; a host of grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends, and her great-grandson. She was preceded in death by her father, Willie L. Rogers, Sr.; stepfather, James T. Wilson; grandparents, Emma and James Rogers, Sr., A.C. Coopwood and Charles Smith; her aunts, Franki Rogers, Josephine Jones, Lillie M. Allen, Verta M.
