Funeral Fund for Roxanne McCormick

StarTribune Article

“When life gets tough, the tough get going.” This timeless proverb may be true for some but, for others, hardship can be too much to overcome. When the going gets tough, their life simply falls apart. Not Roxanne, one of the most hardworking, dedicated, and compassionate people there was. Never complaining about her life, only concerned about others... 

The passing of Roxanne McCormick has left our family in disarray.  I could hardly believe the news of her car accident on December 20th. She passed, surrounded by family, 6 hours later at North Memorial Hospital in Robinsonsdale, MN. I cannot tell you how grief-stricken our family has been over her passing. With limited financial support, this family has been left scratching for funds to bury their mother. Roxanne, a very dedicated mother and grandmother, worked whatever odd jobs she could find to financially support her family. With a list of medical conditions, congested heart failure chief among them, this 57-year-old woman never said I quit. Instead, she kept her feet moving forward to complete her daily routine. With her gone, we want to be able to afford to celebrate her life and give her a proper service.

Her services will be held at Washburn McReavy Funeral Home in Coon Rapids MN. 1827 Coon Rapids Blvd

The funds will be used for funeral expenses only. We have posted a link to the detailed description of the accident.

Rest In Peace and God Bless you.
