Mary Frances (Blazek) Rogers of Cottage Grove, Minn., formerly of Brooklyn Park, died suddenly on Feb. 14, at St. Joseph's Hospital.

She was born on Feb. 25, 1947, in Breckinridge, Minn. Mary worked a few different jobs throughout her life, but the one she enjoyed the most was John Deere. Later in life, she worked two full time jobs to take care of her daughters. She worked at the Brooklyn Park Police Dept. for 10 years as a Police Clerk, and as a caretaker at Villa Del Coronado apartment complex. Mary enjoyed life by traveling to any place that was warm, with a sandy beach. Her passions were taking care of her girls, playing the slot machines at the casino, and especially taking care of her flowers.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Richard Blazek and Alice (Livingood) Blazek; sister, Jane; and brother, Rick; and kitties, Muffie and Bronco.

Mary is survived by her beloved daughters, Tiffany (Jon); and Tianna (Justin); siblings, Bernie, Jeni, Kris, Mike, and Tony; cherished niece, Stacey; nephews, James, and Allan; other cherished family members; and her spoiled kitty, Trouble.
