Roxanne was a dedicated homemaker who found immense joy in caring for her family and creating a warm and welcoming home. She was known for her exceptional culinary skills, often delighting her loved ones with delicious meals and baked goods.

Beyond her role as a wife and mother, Roxanne pursued her passion for nutrition and became a certified holistic nutritionist. She was deeply committed to helping others achieve optimal health through natural and holistic approaches.

A Heart Filled with Love and Joy

Roxanne had a contagious laugh and a warm, inviting spirit that drew people to her. She was always willing to lend a helping hand and had a gift for making everyone feel loved and valued.

She loved spending time in her garden, where she cultivated beautiful flowers and vegetables. She also enjoyed cooking, baking, and sharing her culinary creations with her family and friends.
