  1. I have been thinking about Roxie’s passing, and about Phil and their family, to whom I want to say that I am so very sorry for your loss of wife, mother, grandmother. I have adored Roxie since Crockett Junior High, where we began a friendship that lasted through high school. Roxie was beautiful in every sense of the word, and one of the kindest people God ever made. I hope that Roxie’s children and grandchildren know that she was beloved by everyone who knew her. (And, my best to Belmar Buddy Phil.)
    Love, Lisa Gholston Clarke

  2. Phil – i found out about Roxie as I asked a question on an Amarillo Facebook page, “Did anyone know or remember a couple that appeared as dance contestants on Dick Clark?” An answer with paper clipping showed it was Roxie and another young man. Some commented Roxie had passed. It broke my heart. Phil, you were a very big influence on me in so many ways to copy someone if you wanted to be a complete person. I know Roxie made you even more level. I flew at high levels at Exxon (30 years) and never forgot you or Roxie. You and Roxie will always be my heroes and in my heart. My God continue to circle you with His angels and your family to get through this loss. All the best – Gary Findley (Fort Worth)

  3. Phil, I am so sorry to hear the news of Roxie. While it has been decades since I have seen either of you, your smiles and personality are still etched in my memory. May God continue to bless you and comfort you in your time of loss. My prayers are with you.

  4. Phil –

  5. Phil, my heart broke for you and your family, when I learned of Roxie’s passing. Having lost my husband three months ago, I understand the pain of losing a soul mate. No matter how long our time with them, it would never be long enough. The entire Schantz family was precious to the Spurgeon family. D’Ann was a classmate of my sister; Roxie and I were classmates, reconnecting later as we shared the pain of losing our big sisters too soon; and Marty and my mother were dear friends throughout their years at Crockett Junior High, and into retirement. Our lives were richer for knowing all of them. They were there to welcome Roxie home, though it leaves a void in your home and so many lives. May our prayers and love help heal your heart, and bring comfort in these difficult days.

    1. Dear Jan, I am so sorry for your loss. I had no idea you had suffered so much loss in your family. Your kind words are a great encouragement to me. I married into a wonderful and loving family. My daughter Kelsey has a tender heart of gold just like her precious mother. The reunion in heaven is going to be so glorious. I have so appreciated and have been moved by all those have posted such sweet comments such as yours. God bless you Jan, Phil

  6. Thank you all for such heart touching comments. Beside Roxie’s physical beauty I remember being attracted to her because of her tender loving heart. When we were at David Crockett Jr. High she was so caring and attentive to a boy named Mark Pyeatt who was totally incapacitated suffering with MS. She took the time to visit him in the hospital before he died. That spoke volumes about her character and made me love her all the more.
    Blessings, Phil, Philip, Jim and Kelsey

  7. DearPhil,
    I was at Crockett and Tascosa and AC with Roxie. She was on of the kindest people I ever met.
    The love of Jesus shown in everything she did.
    Love and prayers to your family,
    Connie Kline Okill

    1. Connie, Thank you for your sweet comments. Roxie really was a woman of God. I know Jesus told her well done good and faithful servant. Thanks for your prayers. Phil, Philip, Jim and Kelsey.

  8. I remember Roxie. I’m so happy that she lived a life worth living, impacting the world for Jesus. When I die, I want people to remember the one who died for me, and celebrate what a difference he makes when we make him King. Blessings to the whole family and love from Jesus Christ.

    1. Ken,
      Thanks for your kind comments. Yes Roxie had a great impact on many for the cause of Christ including me. She had a major impact on my decision for Christ. I owe so much to her and I already miss her so much. God bless you. Phil and family

    2. Ken,
      I love what you had to say about Roxie. She was a kindred spirit and had such an amazing way of reaching out to make people feel loved especially the down and out and those hurting. She will be greatly missed.
      Thanks, Phil

  9. Dear Phil,
    My heart is broken for you and your family. Roxie was that rare lady who, genuinely, was as beautiful inside as she was out. Her faith shone like a light through her even when we were just children. She was a lady of elegance and grace and will be sorely missed.
    I know she is with her Schantz family being surrounded with His light. I know, too, your grief must be horrific.
    My mom often said, “we are not promised an easy journey, only a safe landing”. I know Roxie is safe in His arms.
    Please be assured you will be in my heart and prayers.

    1. Dear Cynthia,
      Thanks for your kind words and for your prayers. Yes I know she is rejoicing in heaven with all those who have gone before her. I know before she passed she was looking for her savior Jesus. One of the notes I found next to her chair is now posted on the fridge, Titus 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope and the glorious appearing of the great God and our savior Jesus Christ.
      Good to hear from you. Phil and family

  10. Phil and Family,
    Deepest condolences on Roxies passing. Went to Crockett Jr Hi when she was there always nice to me and to everyone , remember she was a cheerleader and was on American Band Stand. Her Mom was my music choir teacher at Crockett, such a nice family.
    Condolences during this time and God Bless you.

  11. What a mark Roxie left on our lives! Truly a rare and beautiful heart. I was honored to be cheerleader with Roxie during Jr. High and kept up with her years after moving away. She’s unforgettable! Such strong character and maturity, you just wanted to be around her. What a gift to have known her. Our love and prayers go out to her family.

    1. Janie,
      Thanks for you kind comments. Yesterday I was going through her memorabilia and I found her Crockett cheerleader jacket and all her cheerleader photos including your photo. I had a secret crush on Roxie back in junior high but it was not until seniors at Tascosa that I convinced her to go out with me. She blessed my life in innumerable ways most importantly in leading me to faith in Jesus Christ.
      We appreciate those prayers, Phil, Philip, Jim and Kelsey

  12. I have known the Schantz family since I was young. Both daughters were a little older than me.

    What a lovely and genuinely kind family. So sorry to hear about Roxie. My heart goes out to her husband and children.

    My prayers are with all who are grieving. May you find comfort in God’s grace.

    1. Thank you Michele for your kind words. We are standing secure in the love and mercy of Christ.
      Blessings from the Mosers!

  13. Such a sweet spirit! I loved Roxie since we met in junior high. She was the nicest person I have ever met! I am so sorry for your loss. I know she is with Jesus because she proclaimed her love for Him always.! A sad day here and a joyous day in paradise with the Lord.

    1. Dear Terri,
      I am so pleased to see your post. Thanks so much for your wonderful comments. My precious Roxie was patient with me for so many years and was instrumental in my coming to faith in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I am a strong believer in the pre-trib rapture, therefore I think I will see her very soon in the sky along with all those who put their faith in Yeshua.
      God bless you. I pay all is well with Steve and the rest of your family.

  14. One of the kindest, most beautiful ladies I have every known. And even more so now, standing face-to-face with the Lord. Praying for you and your family, Phil.

    1. Thanks Kim,
      You have that right. She was so ready to leave and now she is standing face to face and rejoicing with her precious Jesus and her Schantz clan.
      Many blessings to you and your family. Maranatha Lord Jesus come quickly.

  15. A beautiful person from childhood on, and such a mature and deep faith that inspired faith in so many others. Condolences and prayers from the Dunnagans.

    1. Thanks Steve,
      It is good to hear from you. You forgot to mention “and an amazing dancer”. She kept a blow-up photo of you two with Dick Clark from American Bandstand in a prominent position on her desk all this time. Thanks for your condolences and prayers.
      God Bless you and yours. Phil and family.

  16. Our precious friend Roxie was so loved by so many for so long during her time on this earth. She was so funny and charming with a laugh that just transcended through the room.
    I will miss her dearly but so cherish the memories I have with her in my life.
    Please know I am praying for all of you and send my deepest sympathies.
    Suzanne Clifton

    1. Dear Suzanne,
      I know Roxie thought the world of her birthday club girls. I am so happy she was able to develop lasting memories and enjoy your friendship. I know for a fact she is in a better place, at the same time I am so sad she will miss those six beautiful grandchildren she leaves behind. I already miss her so much. Thanks so much for those prayers, I need them. God bless you and your beautiful family.
      I have photos to prove that statement.
      Phil and family.

  17. Our sweet Roxie was a treasured longtime friend. She was one of the kindest ladies I knew and we have a thousand memories of life together. Her love for Jesus and her family was so deep. I will miss her beautiful smile and and the sweet being she was. Praying for Phil, Phillip, Jim and Kelsey amd family. They raised wonderful children. My heart aches with yours. You are loved!

    1. Dear Brenda and Rick, You two have been such a tower of strength in this my time of grief and distress. I am truly blessed to have such loyal and compassionate friends. As you know I am rejoicing in the acts of service I received from Jim first and now Philip and Courtney. Kelsey has been faithful to pray with me and be such a precious angel of a daughter.

      Thanks again for your prayers. We love you both. Phil and family
      Maranatha Lord Jesus come quickly
