OKLAHOMA CITY — Roxy Ann Arnott passed away October 4, 2012. She was born September 19, 1936, in Carmen, OK, to Walter and Bessie Lewey.

Roxy lived in Enid, Oklahoma, where she went to high school, and attended Oklahoma State University, where she met and married the love of her life, Corbin Arnott Jr. They lived in Oklahoma City, and they raised four children.

Roxy enjoyed spending time raising her children and became a “mother” to many other children at the park where they grew up. Her life was devoted to taking care of family and friends.

After Corbin passed away in 1981, she began her career at Oklahoma Tax Commission. Roxy continued to work there until she retired in September 2011.

Roxy also leaves behind an extremely close group of friends in which she shared many trips, stories and countless laughs. Her absence will be greatly missed at gatherings among those lifelong friends.
