Shawn Rogers Funeral Director/Owner
I started working for Steve and Sue Shurden in 1977. I left the area to attend college, and in 1982 I graduated from the Dallas Institute of Mortuary Science. It was then I returned to Shurden Funeral Home as a Licensed Funeral Director and Embalmer, working there until 1999.
I opened Rogers Funeral Home in 2000, and have never had a moment to regret the decision. After all, I have lived in Henryetta my entire life, and carrying for the families here gives me a deep sense of purpose.
I married Lisa Cunningham, a second grade teacher of 29 years, who also is a lifetime resident of Henryetta. We've been married for 35 years, and have two children, Ross and Kaitlyn. Lisa and I attend the Henryetta First Baptist Church where I am a Deacon, and we both enjoy teaching the adult Sunday School Classes. My hobbies include woodworking, old tractors and family.
Lisa Cunningham Rogers now joins Rogers Funeral Home after retiring from the Henryetta Public School System after 30 years of service. Lisa will assist her husband Shawn, in the caring manner in which all our families are served.
Lisa a Henryetta native and daughter of Bob and June Cunningham and looks forward to her career change. Lisa's caring nature and devotion to serving others will greatly enhance the personal touch provided at such a stressful time in their lives.
Bob Cunningham Funeral Assistant
Bob Cunningham, who happens to be my father-in-law, assists on services and does nightly visitation. Many people remember him as owner of Bob's Men's Store. He truly is an icon in Henryetta, because it seems that everyone for the past thirty eight years has bought men's clothing there. For many families we serve, Bob's presence at funeral services is much like having an extended family member in attendance. He's a true comfort.
On December 30, 2021 Bob passed this life. He has been an essential part of the Funeral Home for the past 21 years. Many will remember Bob as handling the nighttime visitation. He truly enjoyed the people and each of you made him feel a part of your family at your time of need. We will miss Bob as an employee and as my Father in Law.
