Roxanne Marie Carlson, born on Christmas Day in 1951, went to be with the Lord on Sept. 29, 2021, at the age of 69, dying peacefully in her sleep while at home in Maui, Hawaii.
Roxanne was one of the Lord’s most dependable angels here on earth, spreading His word everywhere she went. She is greatly missed by all her family and friends all over the country.
Roxanne devoted her whole life to the Lord, getting her nursing degree at Roberts Wesleyan College which ultimately, along with the Church, led her to a school nurse position at the Doris Todd Christian Academy in Maui, where she served for 43 years.
Predeceased by J. Elton and Eleanor Carlson, who no doubt welcomed their first daughter with open arms.
Roxanne is survived by siblings, Richard (Diane) Carlson, David (Mary) Carlson, James Carlson, Jeff (Suzie) Carlson, Nancy (Mike Stasch) Ensman, Linda (Mike) Jamalkowski, and John Carlson; also Aunts, Joyce Carlson and Janet Nevinger, along with many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
She is also survived by her Maui family, those she worked with and prayed with, especially her housemate, Carolyn Moore, who considered Roxanne a loyal, faithful friend and a sister.
Friends and family may call on Sunday, Oct. 17, from 1-3 in the afternoon at Robinson & Hackemer Funeral Home, 246 N. Main St., Warsaw. There will be a brief informal service following the calling hours, with a graveside service at Portageville Cemetery in the Spring. In lieu of flowers, contributions are encouraged to be made to the Doris Todd Christian Academy at http://www.doristoddchristian.org/giving/annual-fund/.
