Roxcie was born Thursday, January 2, 1941, in Alamosa, Colorado, to Valeria Viola (Neff) and Ervin Jacob Smith. At the time she was born the temperatures in Alamosa, Colorado, was negative 40 degrees; quite possibly the reason she always felt cold.

Roxcie married the love of her life, Raymond Allen Scheetz on June 28, 1986, in a lovely setting of Orchard City, Colorado. They sealed their vows to each other in Manti, Utah at the Manti Temple. They celebrated 34 years together.
Roxcie’s passion was family! She loved spending time with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was an avid collector of Barbie Dolls, bells and music boxes. She was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Cedaredge Ward.
Roxcie is survived by her husband Raymond Allen Scheetz, her two sons Robert Shilaikis (Shawna) of Durango, Colorado and Patrick Scheetz (Lisa) of Colorado Springs, Colorado, daughter Theresa Rood (Henry) of Thornton, Colorado, her brother John Smith of Olathe, Colorado, nine grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
Roxcie was preceded in death by her parents, three brothers, six sisters, and her daughter Rickie Ochoa (Rolland) that passed three years ago from cancer.
Memorial donations may be made in Roxcie’s name to St. Jude’s Hospital 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105.
