Nancy “Carolyn” Rogers Cowart
Wrens, GA – Nancy “Carolyn” Rogers Cowart, 75, loving wife of the late Loyd Henry Cowart, entered into rest Wednesday evening, March 19, 2014 at her residence. Funeral services will be held at 3:00PM Saturday, March 22, 2014 in the James Funeral Home Chapel with Rev. Ed Chance and Rev. J. Scott McKinney officiating. Interment will follow in the Wrens Memorial Cemetery.
One of three children born to the late Kate Clements Rogers and the late John Lewis Rogers, Carolyn was a lifelong resident of Wrens, a member of Wrens Baptist Church, and was employed as a secretary at Air Balance for over twenty years. Her favorite pastime was fishing and then having everyone over for a fish-fry. She was a great sports fan—loved the Braves, the Dawgs and the Falcons. Every week day you could find her watching Let’s Make A Deal, The Price Is Right, General Hospital, Wheel Of Fortune and Jeopardy. Known as “Nanny” to many, Carolyn had a sweet, generous spirit and always saw the best in people. She invested a lot of time volunteering at the North Jefferson Food Bank in Wrens and loved to help others in any way she could. Above all else, Carolyn loved her family and was most content in their presence.
She is also preceded in death by her granddaughter, Chelsea Cowart. Survivors include three children, Ed Cowart, Robert Cowart (Angie), and Sandra Land (Allen); two siblings, Byrd Rogers (Fran) of Thomson, and Katie Hoats (Lewis) of Thomson; six grandchildren, Josh Cowart, Logan Cowart, Emily Cowart, Jordan Land, Shelby Land and Tanner Land; cousins, nieces and nephews; and many friends. Pallbearers will be Otis Blair, Scott Huff, Greg Johnson, Bryan Rogers, Glenn Rooks and Zakk Smallwood. Serving as honorary pallbearers will be her nephews.
The family respectfully requests that memorial contributions be made to Wrens Church of God, 102 Phillips St, Wrens GA 30833 earmarked for the North Jefferson Food Bank.
The family will receive friends at James Funeral Home from 6:00-8:00PM Friday, March 21, 2014.
Legacy of Love
A wife, a mother, a grandma too,
This is the legacy we have from you.
You taught us love and how to fight,
You gave us strength, you gave us might.
A stronger person would be hard to find,
And in your heart, you were always kind.
You fought for us all in one way or another,
Not just as a wife, not just as a mother.
For all of us you gave your best,
Now the time has come for you to rest.
So go in peace, you’ve earned your sleep,
Your love in our hearts, we’ll eternally keep.
