Mr. Jimmie Rodgers was born on January 10, 1943 in Tennessee to the late Clifford Rodgers and Anna Williams Rodgers. He was the 3 rd of 11 children, born before his twin Jerry by 15 minutes. He was preceded in death by his parents, brothers Billy Jack, Charles, and Clifford Stephen, and sisters Rose, Sandra, and Brenda.
Jimmie accepted Christ at an early age and was baptized at St. Paul A.M.E. Church in Gregory, Arkansas. He later joined Antioch Missionary Baptist Church in St. Louis, MO.
Jimmie was educated in the Augusta public school system, where he graduated early from Carver High School and soon thereafter relocated to Saint Louis, MO.
Jimmie united in holy matrimony on June 22, 1964 to Annie Doris Pinkney. To this union, three children were born, Melanie, Deirdre “DeDe” and Denina “Crystal”.
Jimmie was a gifted skilled mechanic and enjoyed working on cars. This talent allowed him to open his own Amoco service station in the 1970s of which he operated as many as three locations over the course of more than 20 years. He also operated additional auto repair locations. Jimmie was able to share his talent with family and friends working on their vehicles and their family and friend’s vehicles throughout the years until he retired. Even though he was a quiet man, he was a friend to many and enjoyed spending time with others. He continued to do this until his health failed him.
Jimmie departed this life on Thursday, December 8, 2022 surrounded by his daughters and nephew.
Jimmie leaves to cherish his loving memory: Annie Doris Rodgers, his wife of 58 years; three daughters,
Melanie Walls, Deirdre Rodgers and Denina Rodgers all of St. Louis, MO; two grandchildren, Brandon (Reyna)
Rodgers of San Antonio, TX and Alexandria Taylor of St. Louis, MO; two great grandchildren, Tiana and
Quentin Rodgers of San Antonio, TX; his twin brother Jerry Rodgers of St. Louis, MO, three sisters Barbara
Barnes of Kansas City, MO, Carolyn Petty and Helen (Genthry) Landrum both of St. Louis, MO; four brothers-
in-law, three sisters-in-law, and a host of nephews, nieces, cousins and lifelong friends.
