She was born Roxane Zelpha Mazeau on August 29, 1940 to the late Francis Mazeau and Zelpha Codding in Milford, CT.
She read her Bible daily and would not leave her study of the Bible until she had heard from the Lord. She was a Sunday School teacher all her adult life and led women’s Bible study groups such as the Amazing Collection Bible Study.

In Georgia, she worked at several Atlanta-area hospitals, including Emory. At the end of her nursing career she was a case manager for rehab brain-injured patients at the Roosevelt Institute in Warm Springs, GA. Roxane loved reading obituaries and learning about the variety of others’ life experiences.

She leaves behind her loving husband of 20 years, Chris, brother Sandy, children Sharon Akin (Joe Akin), Robert Fountain (Megan Fountain), David Fountain, step-daughter Bonnie Sayward (Bruce Sayward), and many grandchildren.
