Roxie Marshall Hunter passed away from this life on May 23, 2016 in Lyle, with family and loved ones by her side. Roxie was born in Vancouver on January 2, 1955 to William and Almeada (Colwell) Marshall.

Roxie attended grade school in Carson, and then her family moved to Lyle where she graduated from high school in 1973. Roxie took many business courses over her life time that served her well as assistant to the general manager of the Klickitat County PUD in Goldendale. She also was the marketing director at Flagstone Retirement Center and Mill Creek Point Senior Living Center in The Dalles.

She married her soul mate and partner for life, Russell Hunter, in 1979. For the first few years of their marriage they lived in Klickitat but when their children became school age, they moved to Goldendale. Not only was Roxie a wonderful wife and mother, but her generous nature was abundant when it came to her grandchildren. She loved them so much, they are her legacy. She would take them to the beach house for weeks at a time. She and Russ moved back to their hometown of Lyle in 2003. She and Russ would often times sit on their deck in the moonlight watching the Columbia River and talk about their precious children.

She was a planner, organizer and helper. She was a very special person. She will be so missed by everyone.

She was preceded in death by her parents, sister Gwen and brother Rocky.

She is survived by her husband Russ, children Marshall (Alissa) Hunter, Jeremy Hunter, Brandi (Corey) Egbert, as well as her precious grandchildren, Rachel, Jordan, Blake, Zack, Belle, Tori and Jonathan. Siblings, Theo (Jay) Hafford, Kristi (Dick) Parsons and Bill (Jennie) Marshall, as well as many nieces and nephews.
