Princeline Roxbury

Roxbury, Princeline,
72 years old (6/24/1940 - 2/22/2013). Born to Frieda and Prince Mahlon in San Francisco, CA. Princeline made the Valley her home for over 60 years. As a well-respected leader in politics from the Kennedy Era, her goal in every election was to make a difference. One of her highlights was working for Governor Janet Napolitano. Her career as a real estate broker often allowed her to summer in San Diego for business interests. Princeline survived breast cancer for seven years, but after two years of ill health, she was diagnosed with lung cancer, a challenge that took her life Friday, February 22, 2013. Survivors include her husband, Hartmann Roxbury and long-time friend and caregiver, Rick Hales. A memorial service will be held in Phoenix at the First Institutional Baptist Church at 1141 E. Jefferson on Friday, March 1st at 11:30 A.M. In lieu of flowers, we ask that donations be made to , for their selfless, end-of-life care.
