Anne Rogers lived for people, her Church and walking. All her working life was spent at Caerwys VP school where she taught several generations of the same families. During the war her classes were swelled by evacuees from Liverpool some of whom returned to live in the town as adults.
She was an elder in the Presbyterian Church of Wales, Caerwys and was the prime mover in transferring the church and congregation to the Bethel chapel when the 'red chapel on the hill' closed.
Anne organized monthly walks for Caerwys locals and annual Christian Aid walks. She was also an active member of the Holywell Rambling Club, participating in hard mountain walks at an age when most people are content to put their feet up. Her evening walks for the ramblers were legendary, not only for their incredible 'torch necessary' length, but also for the homemade supper she always provided for the group. Always open to new ideas and fresh experiences, Anne reluctantly entered public houses with the ramblers during the sixties. She led her last walk at the age of 88 still managing to find new paths and fresh pastures and crossing stiles with ease.
Anne was a well-known and well-loved Caerwys character who always had a smile and friendly word for everyone that she met on her daily walks or walking the six miles to the hairdresser's in Holywell.
Anne went to meet her maker in her 89th year on the 12th September 2001. She will be sadly missed.
