Roxanne lost her battle with Pancreatic Cancer on July 20, 2021, just eight days before her 54th wedding anniversary. She was 76.
She was raised in LA and graduated from UCSB in 1966. She went to San Francisco State for post graduate work and met her husband, Gregory, when he knocked on the wrong apartment door. They married ten months later.
When Gregory graduated from the California College of Podiatric Medicine they moved to Santa Barbara. When she left UCSB she stated “God, if I am good let me come back to Santa Barbara”. Later, she would say “I must have been really good as three years later I was back”.
She worked as a Paralegal, Medical Office Manager and Medical Staff Secretary at GVCH before managing her husband’s Podiatric practice for 51 years prior to his retirement. Unfortunately, she was diagnosed with cancer at the time of their retirement and with the COVID issue there was no time to enjoy life.
Roxanne had been active in the American Association of University Women, La Mirada Home, and a founding and active member of the Santa Barbara Chapter of UCSB Alumni Association until it was disbanded by the University.
She also was a contributor to the building of the Saint Barbara Greek Orthodox Church.
In addition to her husband she is survived by her adopted family, Maribel, Lalo, Tlaloc and Temoc. She will be missed by many friends as well as her cat Lily. Private services are planned.
