In 1989, Roxanne remarried Jeff L. Thomas of Indianapolis, Indiana and began her medical technologist career at Culver Union Hospital in Crawfordsville, Indiana. She and Jeff lived briefly in Memphis, Tennessee in 1992. Roxanne subsequently served as a medical technologist and evening supervisor at Twin Rivers Regional Memorial Hospital in Kennett, Missouri from 1992-1993.

In 2014, Roxanne moved to San Angelo, Texas and served out the remainder of her practice as a medical technologist and medical laboratory scientist at Shannon Medical Center (formerly San Angelo Community Medical Center). Roxanne, who had a great sense of humor, made some of the best friends of her life through her work in the medical industry in San Angelo, and her family appreciates their love and affection toward Roxanne, who was always very strong and self-reliant.
