Obituary

Barbara Roxbury, 81, of Hopkins, MI passed away Wednesday, May 29, 2019 at her home. Born July 1, 1937 in Holland, MI, she was the daughter of the late Harry Raymond and Florence (VanderMeulen) Beekman and devoted wife of Thomas Lee Roxbury. Barbara was a member of Hopkins Community Reformed Church. She owned and operated Grandma Barb’s Daycare where she especially loved spoiling the babies. Barb was very interested in genealogy and traced her family tree through Scotland and the Netherlands. At home, she loved to watch the hummingbirds, orioles, and occasional woodpecker from her window. With a quick wit and loving heart, Barbara loved cracking jokes, giving instructions to her husband, and hugs and kisses to her kids and grandkids.

Barbara is survived by her husband, Tom, of over 50 years; her brother, Harry Beekman, Jr.; and siblings-in-law, James Roxbury, Daniel Roxbury, Joann Roxbury, Mary Jane Wright, Michael Roxbury, Sally Bauer, and Neal Patrick Roxbury. Her spirit is carried on by her children, Robert Wright, Robin Lyles, Kolleen Livingston and Thomas (Ryan) Roxbury, 12 grandchildren, and 17 great-grandchildren. Along with her parents, she was preceded in death by her brothers-in-law, Terry Roxbury and Dennis Roxbury.

A visitation will be held Saturday, June 1, 2019 from 10 a.m. until Noon at Gorden Funeral Residence, Hopkins Chapel. A private burial will follow in Maplewood Cemetery. Memorial donations may be made to the American Red Cross. Gorden Funeral Residence, Hopkins Chapel, is assisting the family with arrangements.
