Sarah Elizabeth Scurlock Rogers, age 101 of 74 Anthony Street, Pittsboro, NC transitioned into eternal rest Monday, June 22, 2020 at Cambridge Hill, Pittsboro, NC.

Mrs. Sarah Scurlock Rogers closed the door of life and entered the Gloryland Way on Monday June 22, 2020 at Cambridge Hills Assisted Living of Pittsboro.

One hundred and one years ago on October 28, 1918 the late Lawrence “Ned” and Iona Scurlock, gave birth to their first baby girl, Sarah. Their home was filled with love, praises of God and family togetherness.

Sarah attended the Chatham County School System which consisted of the old one-room schools. They walked to school and carried their lunch in brown paper sacks. Sometimes walking in the cold and snow did not bother her because she was anxious to learn all she could. She learned to sing as the music director worked with her to develop her voice. A star was born.

After school she moved to Graham, NC where she attended a Methodist Church and sang in the choir. She then went to Waymon’s Chapel where she sang in the senior choir and the gospel choir. Sarah loved to sing the old hymns that told about the goodness of Jesus and what it meant to her. She joined the Gleaners Club, singing songs and studying the scriptures to learn more about the Savior and what He could do for us if we lived according to God’s Holy Word. She was President of the Missionary Department and the Graham Bible Band for over 30 years.

She was married to her love, the late Mr. Thomas Rogers for 62 years; to this union was born one daughter,  Helen Rogers, which proceeded her in death . Sarah later returned to Pittsboro and continue to worship in her church in which she grew up, St. Matthew AMEZ Church.,She was a very dedicated and faithful member. She was the “Mother of the Church” having attended over 75 years.

She leaves to cherish her memories; her daughter, Brandy Rice, her grandchildren, Mia Pinnix, Sariah Rice and Ti Pinnix, great granddaughter Zah cari Dungee, her sister Mrs. Linda Cheek (Colon), her dedicated nephew, Robert Scurlock, Sr., (Marsha) a host of nieces, nephews and other relatives, a special friend Mrs. Joanne Cousins.

A special thank you to the Tate family, Sally grace and Denny, for all of their loyalty and love.
