Roxanne Russell

November 9, 1952 — February 1, 2023

Roxanne Russell passed away peacefully, February 1, 2023, at her home in Layton, Utah, surrounded by loving family.

She was born November 9, 1952, to Marvin Blair Russell and Vaunda Rae Russell in Ogden, Utah. She graduated from Bonneville High School in 1971. She moved to Mesa, Arizona in 1978 and returned to Utah in 1993 where she lived for the remainder of her life. She loved to travel. Her most recent trips included Texas, Oregon, and the British Isles.

Roxanne was a devoted mother and a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She was a seminary graduate, loved Church history, and had visited Nauvoo, Illinois. She supported her family, working as an administrative assistant at Mervyns before moving to First Security Bank, which was eventually bought out by Wells Fargo. She retired in 2016.

She was an avid reader, and had a passion for politics and current events. She enjoyed doing puzzles, and watching ghost hunters, crime dramas, and mysteries. She even completed a couple CSI courses through Weber State University. At the holidays, she always enjoyed Hallmark and Lifetime movies. She also made baby blankets for each of her grandchildren.

She is survived by her mother, Vaunda, her children, grandchildren, siblings, and by her best friend and sister-by-choice, Candy Long.

Stephanie and Reggie Carlisle and their children: Atlee Springer, Rachel Carlisle, Laura Carlisle, Molly Carlisle, and Micah Springer

William Chyne III and his children: Stevie Ray Chyne and Layla SoulShine Gypsy Chyne

Tina Chyne and her children: Jayden Jimerson, Kendell Jimerson, and Ian Jimerson

Randy Russell, Ron and Coleen Russell, Rochelle and Dave Richins, Rhonda and Tony Swapp, Robyn and Mike Butterfield, Rick Russell, Rod and Faye Russell, and Raeni and Aran Bailey

She was preceded in death by her father, Marv, and by four grandchildren.

She would want us to thank McKay Dee Cancer Center for their devoted and loving care provided over the last six years, and Inspiration Home Health and Hospice for the tender care provided over her last weeks.

In lieu of flowers, she would prefer donations made to Primary Children’s Hospital or the American Cancer Society.
