NHDP Statement on the Passing of New Hampshire State Representative Katherine D. Rogers
The passing of eight term New Hampshire State Representative Katherine D. Rogers of Concord was announced by New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Raymond Buckley, her closest friend of nearly fifty years. “Kathi’s heroic battle with cancer is now over. Right up to the end she was working hard on legislation. She never gave up the fight. She died peacefully Sunday afternoon surrounded by friends and her beloved pug, Romeo. “Kathi was brilliant, skilled, and tenacious in everything she did but most of all she was loyal to her friends, who she considered family.
“Throughout her life Kathi's underlying concern was protecting those from abuse; animals, children, women and all disenfranchised peoples. She has left a lasting legacy in Concord, Merrimack County, New Hampshire and the Democratic Party.
"Our hearts are broken, we will keep our promise to continue her fight.”
Arrangements will be announced at a later time.
Katherine Rogers, 67, is a native of Concord, NH. She served eight terms in the NH House, eight terms on the Concord City Council, five terms as a Merrimack County Commissioner and one term as Merrimack County Attorney. She was serving as the Chair of the Concord City Democrats.
