Children’S Advocate Dies


Known for her big heart, tremendous energy and enthusiastic, boundless love for the Rim Country’s at-risk children, Marcy Rogers was found dead in her home Saturday, Dec. 5.

A neighbor went to check on Rogers at her home and called police, who responded at 11:05 a.m., said Payson Police Chief Don Engler. Foul play is not suspected, Engler said.

The founder of Payson Community Kids, Rogers came to Payson in August 1996 to work as a planner for the Town of Payson Community Development Office.

She started the program for “her kids” in 1996.

A memorial service is being planned for Saturday, Dec. 12. See the Dec. 8 Payson Roundup for further details.
