Dear Family and Friends,


Our sweet Roxanne passed away this morning at Wheatlands Healthcare Center, Kingman, Kansas.  Ron was at her bedside.  Due to Corona virus restrictions, Ryan was outside at her window.  May your hearts find comfort that Roxanne is at home with her Lord.  A memorial service will be planned at a later date.


Thank you for your prayers.           Blessings.            Sandra and Rod

This world has lost a real swetheart.  Roxy was Miss Personality, always had a sweet smile etc.  This world will be a lesser place without her.  My prayers are with her and all her family.  I am sure God welcomed her home...
