We all are devastated by the loss of Roxane Jean Lamb. She was a mother, sister, co-worker and good friend to many. Roxane was born on May 23, 1978, to Gloria Jean and Ike Lee Lamb. She passed away the evening of Saturday, Oct.14, in Reno Nevada. We were not prepared for this terrible magnitude of news and the costs of what the funeral, flights and expenses would entail on her three children. Those who loved her know she was kind and generous. Unfortunately, she could never shake her childhood traumas that lay heavy on her heart, and she suffered more as time went on. We all feel at ease knowing her last moments were with her brother Lonnie Lamb and his girlfriend Jean.
In lieu of flowers, her children request you donate to this Go Fund Me Account to assist in their costs and future college fund endeavors. The link is gofundme.com/f/roxane-jean-lamb.
