Roxie lived in Rush County until 1987 when she married and moved to Warsaw. She had recently returned home to Rushville a little over a year ago.
During her life, although she had many positions as a bookkeeper in Indianapolis, Rushville, Greenfield and Warsaw and worked in the insurance arena, her greatest joy was her family and friends. Her world revolved around her children and her grandchildren. Her love, faith, and devotion was felt by all who knew her!
She was a former and longtime member of the Arlington Christian Church, but while in Warsaw was a member of the First Christian Church where she and her husband served for many years with adults, children and in the ladies groups. Serving wasn't a duty for her, it was a privilege!
She is survived by her daughter, Sharon Edwards of Warsaw, step daughters, Leisa Waggoner (Kim Allman) of Indianapolis, Senita (Mitch) Summe of CA and Ronda (Roy) Doucette of GA, a step son, Alan (Lois) Waggoner of Syracuse, brothers, Fred (Janet) Earnest of Rushville, Bill (Carol) Earnest of Logansport and Danny (Rosalie) Earnest of Spiceland, Step-brother Jerry Binder of Rushville and Step-sisters Janet Earnest of Rushville and Joanne Baugh of New Palestine, grandchildren, Zac Parr, Kearston Ogden, Mitchell Gosnell (Megan), Colin Ogden, Chloe Gosnell and Denver Edwards, a great granddaughter, Emma Catlyn Jade Gosnell, several step grandchildren & step great grandchildren also survive. In addition to her parents and husband, Roxie was preceded in death by a son, Scott Edwards, daughters, Marcia Earnest and Karen Ogden, a granddaughter, Catlyn Gosnell and a sister, Nancy Leach.

Friends are welcome to visit from 4:30-8 PM Tuesday evening, December 12 at Moster Mortuary, Rushville. Burial will be in the Arlington East Hill Cemetery.
