Loretta Rogers, Rogers family matriarch, dead at 83

Her daughter Martha Rogers confirmed her death in a tweet issued on Saturday, calling her mother a “beautiful soul” who “possessed an incredible strength of character.”

A beautiful soul left us today. She was a one of a kind spirit who spread love like wildfire. In lieu of flowers there’s many charities Loretta preferred getting support. We’ll give a list of those soon. pic.twitter.com/bnntzpXuYo

She was one of several family members at the centre of a struggle for control of the company last fall that began when her son Edward Rogers, the company’s chair, attempted to oust its chief executive.
