On Sunday, October 20, 2019, Annie Roxanne Biggs 42, resident of New Albany and loving mother, daughter, sister and friend, departed this life at Baptist Memorial Hospital in Oxford following an extended illness.
Funeral Services celebrating the life of Roxanne will be Sunday, October 27 at 2:30 PM at her beloved church, New Birth Community Church in New Albany. Bro. Ronnie Gibbs will officiate and burial will follow in Ripley City Cemetery. Arrangements will be provided by New Albany Funeral & Cremation Care.
Roxanne was born October 2, 1977 in New Albany and is the daughter of Cora Biggs of Ripley and the late Joe Anderson Cook. She was a graduate of Ripley High School and was employed in the food industry as long as health permitted.
A Christian and active member of her church, Roxanne was devoted to her family and grandsons. Her spirit was strong and she celebrated life to the fullest. Cooking, singing, dancing, Old Blues Music and playing cards that included Spades and Deuces were favorite pastimes she enjoyed.
Roxanne's smile will always be etched in our hearts, her laughter will echo in our mind and her never ending fight for life is a reminder to us all--never give up. We will miss her dearly.
