Roxanne Marie McDonald, 58, of Cheyenne died Sept. 12 at Salt Lake City VA of heart failure.

She was born July 9, 1960, in Hibbing, Minn.

Roxanne enlisted in the U.S. Air Force in 1984, and retired from the Wyoming Air National Guard in 2005, after 20 years of service.

She worked as an OB tech in Denver and Cheyenne, but Roxanne was most proud of her military service and deployment in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.

Roxanne was an active volunteer for the Cheyenne Community Emergency Response Team. She was a longtime member of the Society for Creative Anachronism and was most comfortable as “Lady Catherine.”

Roxanne is survived by her sister, Linda Hanmer; nieces Bevette and Brandi; brother, Gary (Joyce); nephew, Cole; and many friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Thomas and Alice.

Deepest appreciation to the caring staff at Cheyenne Regional Medical Center; and the Cheyenne, Denver and Salt Lake City VA centers. No veteran dies alone.

Roxanne, requiescat in pace.

Roxanne will be laid to rest at Buffdale Cemetery in Salt Lake City. A memorial service will be at 11 a.m. Saturday at All Saints Anglican Church in Cheyenne. Military honors will follow.

This is a paid obituary.
