Edith Dois Roskey was born April 24, 1930 in the Chriesman Community to Andrew Emerson Ryan and Ima Florene Segler Ryan. On December 25, 1947, it was God’s plan for her to unite in marriage to the love of her life, James Alton Roskey.

She was preceded in death by her parents and her three sisters who she loved so dearly, Margaret (Dot) Barfield, JoAnn (Jo) Schott and Patsy (Pat) Younts.

Dianne, this is Jeremy. I want you to know that I have been praying for you. Although, I wasn't fortunate to know your mother for a long period of time. I do remember her welcoming me into her home when I visited your father several times to talk about the railroad. I can see her through you as you share your sweet smile when I come into the Hair Stop for my monthly haircuts. You have been there for me when I needed your comfort. I will never forget that night you helped me on the telephone. Mothers are special and your mother was special to me.

I have sweet memories of Dois, and she was the best grandma to my children, Jason and Rebekah. Coming from humble beginnings, she accomplished so much in life, and I always had nothing but admiration and respect for her. Lloyd, Marvin, Di Ann, and James, I’m so sorry sorry for your loss.

My favorite memory was Thanksgivings and the great Easter egg hunts at her house. She was so welcoming to anyone that showed up, and always made me feel like part of the family. She will be greatly missed. Many prayers, hugs, and love being sent to her precious family. Thank you Dois for your kindness, generosity, and friendship.

In 1979 I was fresh out of beauty school and went to work for Dois. My 1st weeks pay was 16.00 but my check showed 100.00. This continued for several weeks- Dois gave me the extra money for what she told me of being a good employee. My lessons were to show up on time. Answer the phone before 3rd ring and help Louise with her daily job. At the time I thought this is easy- what I now know is Dois was molding me into the person I am today. She taught me honesty is the best policy and the customer is always right. The early bird gets the worm. God and family always come first and in that order.
The absolute best boss I ever had. Dois loved life and never walked away from hard work. May she receive her crown of jewels in heaven. Comfort and peace to James and the boys and to Diann you are the best daughter and the apple of your moms eye. Thank you for caring and doing everything possible for your mom. She was one hell of a woman and I will never forget her. Love you all

Such a wonderful lady. Mom and dad just loved James and Dois. She was such a fun loving person. I loved to watch James and Dois dance at Sefcik hall. Prayers with James and the Roskey family. 🙏🙏🙏

I remember the first time I saw James Alton & Dois dance. They just glided across that dance floor. Such a beautiful couple & incredible dancers. What a wonderful memory!

Diane and all, I was so sorry to hear of Dois' passing. All of y'all are in my prayers. The first thing that popped in my mind, besides her beauty and kindness, was running into her at the Temple Mall when I first moved back to Temple and her remembering how she use to make bean and egg sandwiches for me when we were kids. Diane, if you need anything, please let me know. Love you my sweet friend.
