Roxanne Marie Nelson passed away Monday, February 13, 2017 at home after a hard-fought four-year battle with ovarian cancer. She was born March 21, 1956 in Grand Rapids. After graduating from Greenway High School in 1974, she married her loving husband of 42 years, Thomas J. Nelson. They moved to Colorado for a couple years while Tom served in the Army, but quickly moved back home to Coleraine where she had lived out her beautiful life raising their three children.

She was a devoted wife, mother, sister, and friend, living her life enjoying the pleasures and company of all those she loved. Over the years, she enjoyed cooking and baking for her family, reading, and camping. Her greatest accomplishment, though, was simply being Rox. She touched many lives by simply being there.

She was preceded in death by her son, Tim; and her parents, Bob and Jo Gibeau.

She is survived by her husband, Tom; her son Tony ( Emily); her daughter, Rachel; three grandchildren; and her siblings, Pam (Mike) Mallum, Colen (Cindy) Gibeau, and Jim (Linda) Gibeau.

Interment in the Lakeview Cemetery, Coleraine.
