Plan Ahead

Lucy M. Rogers

July 9, 1949 –
 December 20, 2022


I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. ~ 2 Timothy 4:7

Lucy M. Rogers, loving wife, amazing mother and grandmother, devoted sister, aunt, and friend passed away peacefully in McKinney, Texas on December 20th at age 73 after a courageous battle with ALS.

Lucy was born on July 9th, 1949. She was a native of Greensboro, Georgia, the daughter of C.A. (Scut) Wilson Jr. and Prudence Elliott Wilson. She graduated from Greene County High School, Greensboro, Georgia in 1967.

She is survived by Glynn, her husband of 43 years; son and daughter-in-law Michael and Kim McCranie of Frisco, TX; grandchildren Lindsay and Lane McCranie; grandest children Drew, Matt, and Sarah Wilson; brother Jimmy
(Colleen) Wilson of Eatonton, GA; sister Judy (Dennis) Gore of Thomaston, GA; multiple nieces and nephews.

Lucy was preceded in death by her parents and her sister, Victoria Wilson Jackson.

After high school she pursued a career in nursing. Her career spanned over 50 years with the last 39 years dedicated to Post Acute / Long Term Care. As a Registered Nurse and Licensed Administrator, Lucy earned certifications in Gerontological Nursing, Subacute Administration, Healthcare Compliance, and Healthcare Compliance Executive. She was also a Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Administrators. She also served on the boards of the Georgia Healthcare Association (past chair, chair of Quality Committee), the American Healthcare Association, Alliant Health Solutions, Community Health Services of Georgia, Dahlonega (GA) Historical Preservation, and Enotah CASA (GA).

Her passion was improving quality of care and quality of life for the residents and patients across the state of Georgia. She was often lovingly referred to as the “Queen of Quality”. Lucy never wanted to get far from “the bedside”. She was a coach, advocate, and cheerleader for all who provided any aspect of care for our seniors.

There will be a service in Georgia after the holidays. The family will notify loved ones when the service is scheduled. The family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations be sent to The ALS Association.

"Excellent customer service, they made you feel like you were their only customer. Very helpful and explained what we should expect during the process. They basically took care of our needs during this time. They contacted DFW National Cemetery for us which made it a smooth experience. Definitely will use them again."

"If I could give 6 stars I would. Aria made a difficult easier to deal with by basically taking care of everything in an efficient but very empathetic manner. I can speak highly enough of Dusty Martin, who helped us with all of the planning and logistics. He was incredibly understanding and helpful."

"Nothing prepares you for the grief you go through when losing a child. I called this funeral home at 2:00 am broken and could barely talk. The amount of compassion and empathy they showed me immediately let me know I found the right place to cremate my son. I cannot thank them enough for their professionalism, SINCERE concern, and commitment to making sure my son was honored in the most respectful way. I hope this Funeral home values her as much as my family and I do."

"I can’t say enough about how helpful and professional Dusty Martin, the funeral director at the Aria Cremation location on NW Highway has been. From my initial call, he was kind and informative. My friend died at home while on hospice and she was picked up in about an hour after receiving the call from the hospice nurse. The person who arrived to pick her up was also very professional/respectful and allowed us to take as much time with her as we wished. When I met with Dusty the next day about arrangements, he explained the process and options available without being pushy or trying to “sell” extras. Throughout the process, he kept me informed and, for example, was careful to be certain I understood the cost of the obituary I wanted and offered some options for reducing that cost if I wished. When I stopped by for another reason and started talking about some of the problems I was having with the pictures and media I hoped to use at a memorial lunch I was planning, he not only listened patiently but offered technology advice and let me use his personal media player. I have had experience arranging cremations for four others using two other local companies, and this experience with Dusty at Aria has been by far the best one I have had."

"My Daddy’s service and our family experience at Aria Northwest Highway was truly blessed. Funeral Director Dustin Martin is the kind of person that you would like to see on a more regular basis – but in his industry – you hope to not see him that often. That being said – THANK YOU DUSTIN for your unending kindness, compassion and friendship through the process. Meeting you and discussing Dallas History, Find A Grave and my Dad’s lifelong contributions to the great City of Dallas was simply wonderful! In memory of my dad James A. Dodd, Sr. – I want to personally thank you and let you know that you made everything better in that moment. Your calling to “Be There” is spot on. Aria has a one in a million guy in you! Bling Blinky of TEXAS Shout Out: God Bless You!!"
