Roxanne (Schmidt) Fields, 65, passed away peacefully at her home in Phoenix, Arizona, on October 4, 2022.
Originally from Detroit, Michigan, Roxanne settled in the desert in the early 80s. She was a caring mother, grandmother, sister, and friend, an excellent creator of homemade pies, an avid reader of books, and a giver of truths whether you wanted them or not.
Roxanne raised two children, Brittany (Mark) Burchard and Ryan Clarkson, and doted on her grandchildren, Luke and Logan. She wasn’t one to turn down a margarita, a trip to a Diamondbacks game, or a visit up north with her sisters, Robin Schmidt and Dori Juleff. She loved hosting birthday parties, holiday dinners, or summer BBQs, and her nieces, nephews, and family friends always knew they were welcome in her home.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Arthur and Margaret Schmidt, and her older sister Kathy Antkoviak. We can only assume she is currently organizing a Euchre game with them, using her own house rules, while snacking on sour cream and onion chips.
A Memorial Service will be held at Whitney & Murphy Funeral Home, 4800 E Indian School Road, Phoenix on Sunday, October 16, 2022 at 1:00pm. Please do not feel like you need to wear black, Roxanne preferred wearing her favorite items, regardless of the color.
