Roxann has asked that in lieu of flowers, memorial donation be made to St. Jude's Research Hospital. She included that "money would be better spent to help save a child than to put flowers on my grave, also if that money saves just one child then my time on earth was important."
Arrangements are under the care of Bennett-Wormington Funeral Home in Monett.
