Roxanne Lee Hudson passed
away on July 10, 2020 at home
in La Center, Washington, after a
courageous fight against ovarian
cancer. She was surrounded by
the family she loved so much, and
who loved her. Roxanne was a loving, generous woman who
deserved more time on this earth.
Roxanne, known to her family as “Roxy”, was born to
Leroy and Virginia Sproat in Renton, Washington on Sept. 15,
1954, one of a pair of identical twins. She attended schools
in Renton and graduated from Hazen High School in 1972.
Her first job after high school launched her career in data
processing, in which she worked until she retired. Roxanne
married her high school sweetheart, Ronald Hudson, in 1976,
and they relocated to Vancouver, Washington soon after.
A hard worker, at home and on the job, Roxanne was
a force to be reckoned with – she did not quit until the job
was done and done right. So often, she put the needs of
others ahead of her own and will be remembered for her
Above all, Roxanne loved her family and being a
grandmother was a great joy to her. She enjoyed spending
time with her family – trips to the beach, Disneyland, and
travelling to Arizona in their RV to spend the winter. Roxanne
loved country music and was an avid Seahawks fan. She
also loved to bake; her grandchildren will really miss their
Grandma’s “sparkly” cookies.
Roxy was preceded in death earlier this year by her
father Leroy. She is survived by her husband Ron, son
Branden (Shelly), and daughter Megan Glaus (Kevin), six
grandchildren, her mother Virginia, and sisters Linda Barber
and Rosanne McPherson.
We will cherish her memory forever.
