Dear family..I'm so sorry to learn of Roxie's death. I remember her well from OHS where I was the art teacher during her years there. She was a very talented artist and I'm sure left a bit of herself through her work all over the world. My thoughts and prayers are with you. May God give you the grace to face the days ahead..for His grace is sufficient for all our needs.

I was a part of the "Mountain Avenue Gang" growing up. Roxie was the leader and her ideas were very creative. Sometimes we were in a world of trouble but we did have a good time. Roxie was the most talented person I have ever known. She could play the piano and I will never forget "The Little Match Girl". My thoughts are with Robin and Bill.

I was Robin's and Roxie's neighbor on the hill above their house growing up as kids. While Robin and I hung out and drag raced our parents cars, Roxie was our conscience as the annoying little sister. Roxie and I got into water fight in their back yard once that ended when she bit down on my leg. I secretly loved her though, and thought she was the prettiest girl I had ever seen. I am not surprised that she became so well known for her independence, as a reknown artist, a fierce fighter. and loved by so many. I have lived and worked in the Rome, Georgia area for over 25 years now, and have driven though Valley Head many times, working way over to 59. I wished I had known that she and her husband lived there. If it is not too late, I am going try and attend her funeral.
My prayers are with Robin, and the Worthy family and for her friends who have known Roxie through the years. She was an unforgettable character and wonderful person I'm sure.
