Roxanne Vee McCloskey, age 62, of St Paul journeyed to the Spirit World on Friday, June 5, 2020 at Regions Hospital.
She was born on May 27, 1958 in St Paul, Minnesota as the daughter of Robert and Lois (Bad Boy) McCloskey. She attended Monroe High School, and lived in St Paul all of her life.
Roxanne loved her children and they loved her. She got much joy from thrift stores, coloring pictures, her plants, and decorating her homes. She loved barbeques with her family and having Aunite Wob’s famous fry bread. Roxanne never had a bad thing to say about anyone, and naturally made people laugh. Being a grandmother was one of her greatest joys.
Roxanne is survived by her seven children: Tony, Jesse, Cassandra, Sarah, William, Monica, and Ben McCloskey; 16 grandchildren, 2 great grandchildren, her mother Lois McCloskey, brother Randy McCloskey, and other relatives.
She is preceded in death by her father Robert “Bob” McCloskey, brother Bob McCloskey, and her husband Rodney Urban.
“I am at peace, my soul is at rest
There is no need for tears
For with your love, I was so blessed
For all those many years”
