Roxanne Atchison (Dale)

April 24, 1951 — November 20, 2018

Roxanne was born April 24, 1951 and passed away in Phoenix, AZ, November 20, 2018. She grew up in Marysville and moved to Renton in 1979. She also lived for some time in Gulfport, MS; Indio, CA; and Mill Creek, WA. About five years ago

she settled in Phoenix.

In her youth she loved dancing, softball and roller skating. Skating was a passion she also shared with her mother and longtime friend Dianne Groves. It

was popular with many families in Marysville. Her love and talent for skating inspired the owners of the Marysville Skate Inn, Charlotte and Fred Groves, to form the first Marysville Skating Club and go beyond lessons into proficiency testing and competition. Roxanne did well competing on a state, regional and national level.

Later in life she enjoyed her horses, dogs, gardening, boating and family.

She is survived by her son Rodney Harrison; daughter Lisa Mayo; grandsons Palmer and Maguire Harrison; and sister Cheryl Dale Williams. She was preceded in death by her parents, Wallace and Beverly Dale of Marysville.

Roxanne had a big, beautiful smile as well as a kind and generous heart. Gone but never forgotten, we will always miss her.

A Celebration of Life will be held April 28, 2019, at 3 p.m. at the Jennings Park Barn in Marysville.

In lieu of flowers donations may be made to: City of Parks & Recreation, Jennings Park Fund, 6915 Armar Road, Marysville, WA. 98270.
