Roxie (Heck) Clayburn

Roxie (Heck) Clayburn, 75, passed away on Saturday, November 3, 2012, in the Parkhouse Providence Pointe, Royersford. Born in Phoenixville, she was a daughter of the late Saint E. and Ellen E. (Pulliam) Heck.
As one of Jehovah's Witnesses, she was a devoted Christian attending the Royersford Congregation her entire life. She managed the infant room at Charlestown Playhouse Show N Tell Nursery School for many years. Children loved Miss Roxie's room. She could tame the wildest child to sit in circle time and sing along with her. Roxie loved to travel and shop, dancing, skating and music. Most of all, she loved her family, whom she helped in any way she could.
She resided in Mont Clare when she married Ernest Clayburn and had three children, Gay Rogers, of Phoenixville, Wornell Clayburn, of Phoenixville, and Margaret Clayburn, of Media. She is also survived by three grandchildren, Ardell and Roxie Rogers, who she helped raise, both of Norristown, and Marquis Allen, of Pottstown. Also surviving are four great grandchildren, Aaliyah, Tyrell, Nyla and Mia; brothers, Warnell and Carl Heck, both of Phoenixville; and sister, Barbara White, of Norristown. She was preceded in death by siblings, Eugene Heck, Mary Elizabeth Heck, Margaret Green and Bernard Heck.
Relatives and friends are invited to attend her memorial service on Thursday, November 8, 2012, at 3:00 p.m. at the Campbell-Ennis-Klotzbach Funeral Home, Inc., Main Street at Fifth Avenue, Phoenixville, with Brother James Dalton officiating.
