Berry Chalmers Rogers: An obituary published yesterday...

June 21, 1996

Berry Chalmers Rogers: An obituary published yesterday incorrectly reported that no services were held for Berry Chalmers Rogers, 76, formerly of Baltimore, who died June 8 in Columbia, S.C. In fact, services were held there June 12 at St. John's Episcopal Church. Memorial contributions can be made to the church, 2827 Wheat St., Columbia, S.C. 29205.

The Sun regrets the error.

Berry Chalmers Rogers, 76, who retired in 1989 as a purchasing agent at Armco Steel in East Baltimore and moved to Columbia, S.C., died at home of a stroke June 8.
