Roxie was united in marriage to Jim “Tim” Bolen on July 17, 1954. The couple moved to Aurora in 1959 with Jim’s employment at DM & IR. Roxie was a devoted housewife and mother. She had also been employed at Betty’s Coffee Shop, Cherro’s Variety Store and the East End Market. She was a member of the Red Hat Society and the Our Savior’s Lutheran Church.
