8 Condolences for Roxanne M. (Confer) Robinson


  • Final goodbyes are so hard for those of us left behind. But it would be selfish of us to wish for you to still be here, as this life has brought you so much pain and discomfort. Those days are over now and you can get up and dance and spread your wings and fly as the MS no longer controls you. We will miss you terribly but we know that you are with Dad and Scotty making a new place for us all to join you later. Love you to the moon and back. ❤

  • Thank you, dearest Roxanne, for sharing some of your remaining time on earth with me, my childhood friend. I will always dance to the “Monster Mash” in your honor….and in memory of your unforgettable 16th birthday party. Love and peace to your family and your truest of forever friends, Sharon Vickers and Blanche Foskey, both of whom celebrate your arrival into the arms of God.

  • A beautiful soul, Rocky, may it soar. Our condolences to the family, God Bless.

  • My dearest Rocky, where do I begin? Seemed like you were more of a big sister rather than a friend. Thank you for taking care of me when I was a teenager and stayed with you for a while, I know I caused you many headaches, but you overlooked them and loved me anyway. Thank you for teaching me how to make subs and grilled cheese sandwiches! God is rejoicing now that one of His saints are home in heaven with Him. I know you’re enjoying being able to walk, run, dance and be in His presence now. No more pain Rocky. I love you!!! Connie

  • Roxanne, I couldn’t have asked for a better person to be my stepmother! You were so much more to me than that! You treated me like a daughter and were always so loving, patient and kind. I am so blessed to have had you in my life. I will miss you every day but I know you are with me, along with Dad and Scott. This is not goodbye, I will see you again one day soon. Love you!

  • My thoughts and prayers are with your family.

  • Our deepest condolences to you…What a wonderful woman (remarkable, like her late husband)! Thanks for letting us care for both of them–and you! We’re still here for you in bereavement…Prayerfully, Pastor Doug Perkins, Chaplain, Compassionate Care Hospice
