Jayne E. Rash Roller Vogt, age 84, passed away peacefully on Monday, May 16, 2022.

Visitation: 10AM to 11:30AM Thursday, May 19, 2022 at Lake Shore Funeral Home

Graveside Service: 1PM Thursday, May 19, 2022 at Chapel Hill Memorial Park

Jayne was born in Waco, Texas to Howard Rash and Ruby Starnes Rash. She attended Elementary School in Riesel, Texas and La Vega High School. In 1954 she married Howard Roller. Two children were born of this marriage, Jeffrey Carl and Cynthia Kay. This marriage was dissolved in 1961. She was married to Worth Vogt from October 1983 until his death in 1997.

Jayne had a long and successful work history beginning with the Waco Tribune Herald from 1959 to 1964; Western Union Telegraph Company from 1967 to 1975 – working her way from trainee to office manager; Ideal Aluminum Mfg. from 1977 to 1989. When Ideal closed, she went to TSTC and took courses in information management, learning various computer programs and received her GED at age 54. She worked for McDonnell Douglas Training Center, producing training manuals from 1991 to 1993. In April 1993, she began work for Chrysler Technologies (now L-3 Communications) and remained there until April 2008. She loved her job as a desk top publisher there and worked many long hours on proposals being submitted to the government.

Some highlights of her career were attending the Democratic and Republican Conventions in 1968 as a teletype operator for Western Union, touring the Johnson Ranch, setting up press headquarters in Austin when Lyndon B. Johnson was president, and the privilege of a private tour of Air Force One while it was hangered at the L-3 site.

But the joys of her life were her children and their families. She loved having gatherings at her home.

Jayne was preceded in death by her husband, Worth Vogt; parents, Howard and Ruby Rash; brother and sister-in-law, Howard David and Darlene Rash; great grandson, Gentry Dokter and brother-in-law, Thomas Leidich.

Jayne is survived by her daughter, Cindy Kalina and husband Steve of Ross; son, Jeff Roller of Bellmead; grandson, Shawn Kalina and wife Ashlee of West and their daughters, Suade and Shalee Kalina; grandson, Garrett Dokter and wife Hannah of China Spring and their daughter, Emory Dokter; granddaughter, Melissa Lindberg and husband Sean of Sydney Australia and their son, Dylan Michael Lindberg; sister, Patsy Leidich of China Spring; two of the greatest friends ever, Chuck and Lisa Campbell; three nieces, one nephew and two great nephews.

Special thanks to Gwen Skold and Debbie and Steve Kincer for all the help they have given Jayne.

    I met Ms. Jayne in the late 90s when we worked at Waco. She was a little spitfire and right away I got attached to her. She was caring, smart, witty, and an extremely hard working little lady that knew her job, very tech savvy also. She was respected and valued by everyone she met. We grew to be good friends and I have kept her Cowboy Cookie recipe dear to my heart. A Christmas tradition. I loved her like family, she was such a charming lady and I will miss her. Knowing Ms. Jayne she is overwhelmed with joy up there in Heaven. She is the center of attention, rightfully so, surrounded by all of those there that love her too. God let us borrow Ms. Jayne for a while and now He wants her back. What a beautiful lady, I am so thankful she touched my life. My prayers are for each of her family for healing and comfort. God Bless each of you.
