Sherrie “Bama” Nix Rogers 56, died Saturday, Dec. 28, 2019 at home in her bed, just where she wanted to be.
She graced the world with her presence on Aug. 20, 1963, born the pride and joy to the late Bruce and Jean Nix.
Bama was a kind-hearted soul, a loving wife, momma and friend, who spoiled her babies and grandbabies without complaint.
She was sweet and sassy. To know her was to love her.
She loved her people, she loved her bar and she loved life.
She was world renowned for her lack of patience, not holding back her opinion, and had a knack for telling it like it is. She always told the truth even if it wasn’t what you wanted to hear.
More often than not, it was the school of hard knocks, so suck it up buttercup, she would say. Choose happy.
With that said, she was genuine to a fault, with the softest heart, yet sugar coated nothing.
Her extensive vocabulary was more than highly proficient in knowing more curse words than most people learn in a lifetime.
These words of encouragement, wisdom and sometimes comfort kept us in line.
In the famous words of Bama, “Has anyone told you... Jusssst kiddin!”
She will be sorely missed and survived by her loving husband Craig Rogers; children Brandi Franks (Trey), Matthew Hamilton, Tonya Hamilton, Terra Hamilton, Devian Rogers (PJ), Darien Rogers, Tracey Rogers, Trenton Valentine and Brittany Stubblefield (Gary); mother-in-love Shirley “Mama” Rogers; brother Randy Nix (Donna); brother-in-law Jimmy Rogers; eight grandbabies and special friends, Alana Smith, Delton and Sally Sturgis and Gary Wright, along with all her bar patrons at Bandera/Copeville, Texas who knew and loved her.
Special thanks to Peterson Hospice and Nurse Debbie.
A celebration of life will be held on Sunday, Jan. 5, from noon to 6 p.m. at the Boot and Saddle Saloon, 702 Texas Highway 16, Bandera, Texas 78003.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made at Hondo Bank or at the Boot and Saddle Saloon for a deck to be built in her honor.
