Ottumwa Courier

---- — OTTUMWA — Roxanna (Roxie) Marie (Deevers) Hicks, 56, of Ottumwa, died July 3, 2013, at Oakwood Nursing and Rehab Center in Albia following a prolonged illness.

Roxie was born May 11, 1957, to Walter and Lavina Deevers in Ottumwa , graduated from Eddyville high School in 1975 and married Edwin Hicks Feb. 29, 1980.

Roxie enjoyed having gatherings at her home, where she was an excellent cook and hostess. As well as being known for her card playing skills, she never forgot a name or a face and will be missed by many.

She is survived by her mother, Lavina of Ottumwa; her brother, Stuart Deevers of Colorado; two sisters, Vicky Hults of Ottumwa and Dorinda Woods of Indiana; two nieces; two nephews; and one great-niece.

She was preceded in death by her fraternal and maternal grandparents, father and husband.

As per Roxanna's wishes, she was cremated. Her family and friends gathered in remembrance of her on July 6 at Westgate Towers in Ottumwa.

In lieu of flowers, a memorial will be determined by the family to a charity at a later date.
