(Sept. 14, 2005) -- A memorial service for Barbara Rogers has been set for Saturday Sept. 17 at 10:00 a.m. at the Parkcrest Christian Church Worship Center, 4940 Parkcrest Street in ELB.
Via an email, a friend of Ms. Rogers invites those attending to "bring a photo or two of Barbara (and you) that you'd like to share and attach a short description of why it is significant to you."
Ms. Rogers, 60, a Lakewood resident and former Miss Iowa (1965), left friends terribly concerned following sudden disappearance in mid-August. Missing person posters and candlelight vigils were held.
Her body was found on Sept. 7 in Pico Rivera near the San Gabriel River. The L.A. County Sheriff's office is investigating her death as a homicide.
