She was born August 8, 1951 in Lexington, KY and was the daughter of Ondeine Williams of Penn Hills and the late Bill L. Williams. Roxanne worked for many years as a nurse. She was very caring and helped people with traumatic brain injuries. She also worked in Geriatrics and loved that work as well.
