She enjoyed swimming, fishing, sailing, traveling and spending time (preferably over a meal) with family, friends and neighbors. She loved the MN Arboretum. Her own garden was a beautifully curated space that reflected her sense of whimsy. Her beloved home was a sparkling, sun-filled place of comfort, pride and two vociferous cats, who served as the Temple Guards. Roxanne was the quintessential Queen of innovation. She had determination, great compassion, and a wonderful sense of possibility. We are all better for knowing her or knowing of her-someone to remember, as well as emulate. Blessings and sincere gratitude to all of her helpers throughout-You know who you are.
