Melba Rogers Ishibashi, born September 17, 1938, passed away peacefully at age 83 on July 16, 2022.
Born in Calvert, TX, she was the daughter of Lyda Jake Ansley and Mary Lou Ansley.
Melba was an avid reader. She enjoyed reading anything but most of all, she loved reading love stories. She loved watching Hallmark movies but, Christmas love stories were her favorite. She always had open arms for anyone in need, even if she did without. She loved her children but took such pride and joy in her grandchildren. Her eyes would light up with the touch of her grandbabies and her smile would melt your heart.
Melba's death was preceded by her parents Lyda Jake Ansley & Mary Lou Ansley. Sisters; Jessie Lou Woods, Agnes Ruth Savage & Georgia Nell Ansley, husband Ray Grubb Rogers, daughter Tammy Leanne Rogers and Nephew Glen Woods.
Melba is survived by her husband Tokio Ishibashi; her children Kay Quinn, Rose Ragsdale, David Rogers & Kimberly Petroff; grandchildren Tonya Robinson, Robert Brady, Glynna Braddock, Sarah Rogers, Jonathan Rogers, Haley Abbott and Lucas Petroff, many great-grandchildren as well as a number of loving family members.
We find comfort knowing she is no longer in pain and she met her Lord and Savior.
