God opened his arms on Saturday December 22, 2018 and welcomed another Fisher angel into his court. To Mary and Tiffany, my deepest sympathy goes out to you in your time of sorrow. Aunt Roxie was a beautiful person, inside and out, and she loved her family more than anything. She will be greatly missed by all that knew and loved her.
My greatest memory of her was when my mom had an accident and was in a coma for 2 weeks, Aunt Roxie was by her side everyday, talking to her and praying for her. She would cook and bring food to the house for us kids. She took me shopping for school cloths because my mom wasn't able to. She was there for me whenever I needed her! I love you and miss you Aunt Roxie.
