Roxanna Mary Jones
July 21, 1947 – January 18, 2012
Roxi was an amazing woman with a heart bigger than words can express. She was born in Oliver, BC to Albert and Joyce Bastian, but grew up in Ladysmith where she married Donald Arthur Jones (deceased). She is a much loved “Momma Bear” to her three children: Tami, Corey Jones, and Tina (Sean) Salway, as well as a loving grandmother to Brittany Van Riper; Madysen, Rebekah and Mason Salway; and Devyn, Brendan and baby Roxy Jones. Roxi will never be forgotten by her brothers: Richy (Donna) Bastian, Jamie (Barb) Bastian and sisters: Lori (Mike) Rogerson and Sandi (Richard) Hill, as well as her many nieces, nephews and her friend and partner, Don Hachey.
As true to her nature, Roxi fought cancer for seven long years and managed to continue to create many happy memories, which we will always be grateful for. On the morning of January 18th, she lost her battle. She may be gone from this world but will never be gone from our hearts. Roxi always gave of her time, talents and love to anyone and everyone that was lucky enough to know her.
Our family will be forever grateful for the love, care and support by all the staff at NRGH and her amazing doctors that helped her get the very most out of her precious life.
Friends and family are asked to join together and celebrate her life at Cavallotti Hall, 2060 East Wellington Rd, Nanaimo, BC on Sunday, February 12th, 2012 from 12-2pm. In lieu of flowers, please give to the Canadian Cancer Society.
