Shirley Ann (Rogers) Weiszbrod was born in a two room dugout on land west of Laverne, Oklahoma in Harper County, Oklahoma. She was the 6th child of 13 born to Willard Wayne and Ruth Belle (Jemes) Rogers on January 13, 1938. Shirley attended Laverne schools until the 2nd grade before the family moved to May, Oklahoma. She graduated from May High School in 1957. She attended Panhandle A&M University in Goodwell, Oklahoma and received her degree in Elementary Education. She later received her Masters Degree in Education from Northwestern Oklahoma State University. Shirley taught school at May for one year and she taught at Ft. Supply Schools for 20 years and Woodward for three years before her retirement in teaching. She always would tell her students to Put Your Thinking Caps On. After her retirement from teaching Shirley went to work for Western State Hospital in the Mental Health Department for seven years and also in the Reimbursement office for a period of time.
She was united in marriage to John Eugene (Gene) Weiszbrod on August 8, 1957 in Woodward, Oklahoma. To this union, three children were born: Janice Sue, Rodney Dean, and John Dee. When Shirley wasnt working at school, she was a hard working farmers wife, they had pigs and sheep for 4-H projects, they did rodeos, and she was always there in the arena helping all three kids practice. But the one thing she would not do is drive the tractor. She always cooked pancakes for breakfast every morning and on Sunday nights the family would eat grilled cheese sandwiches and watch Hee Haw. Shirley enjoyed making and teaching all the grandkids how to make chocolate chip cookies and home made play dough. The Big Kids loved her peanut patties and zucchini cake!
Shirley was faithful to her beloved Ft. Supply United Methodist Church. She loved her Wednesday morning group with her quilting and coffee ladies. She taught Sunday School, even when there was only one child. She was a State Senior Citizen Spelling Bee Champion. Shirley and Leota Campbell studied many, many hours together for the spelling bee! She loved her siblings: Wayne Rogers, Betty Herring, Marvin Rogers, Eldon Rogers, Mary Harbor, Donald Rogers, Stella Freeman, Glenda Reinier, Tom Rogers, and Leroy Rogers. The family had many great trips! They loved to hear her holler when she would win at the casino. Even when she wasnt winning, she would holler and clap when everybody was winning. The family has many precious memories of Shirley.
