Our lovely, stubborn, and beautiful Roxann Mae Turnquist passed into the unknown this week at the unripened age of 26. Above all things she was a mother, daughter, sister, friend, and lover. For Roxann, life was about laughter, seeking out new experiences, being there for others with whatever she had to give, and searching for true meaning in life.
On the day she was born God steeped her in joy; she absorbed the ability to light up faces on those around her. As a baby everybody wanted to hold her, as a child all the other kids wanted to play with her. There was always time to meet up with someone to talk, room at the gathering for another guest.
Through tragedy she walked with purpose, aiming to ease the suffering of those in need. She rarely asked for anything, but always had something to give.
Becoming a mother at a young age, she worked her way through school to become a hair dresser, a perfect fit for a young lady with the gift of gab and the desire to help others look as good as she wanted them to feel. Blessed with 4 children, she worked tirelessly to provide for them and give them each the time they deserved. Her life was not easy.
Near the end she made a decision to be a stay at home mom, so she could be with her children, get them ready for school with less stress, aid them in their studies, and teach them how to deal with the struggles of life. Things were looking up, and she was filled with contentment by choosing family over finances. It was the last big decision Roxann made, and it speaks about her completely. Roxann is survived in death by her four children, Lexei (8), Link (6), Lyric (3), Ledger (1), parents Bill and Randi Lloyd, fiancé Christopher Drudge, brothers and sisters, aunts and uncles, nieces and nephews, cousins and friends the world over.
Memorial services will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, March 19 at the Journey Church, 1794 E Baxter Lane, Bozeman. Condolences and memories may be shared with the family at www.dahlcares.com.
