Roxanne Bird Marshall, 69, of Spanish Fork, passed away Thursday, July 8, 2021. She was born April 24, 1952, in Provo, Utah, to Duane and LaRue Bird. She married Michael Marshall on December 13, 1969, and again on February 14, 1990.
Roxanne’s great pride and accomplishments were her family. There wasn’t anything she wouldn’t do or try for her family. From the dollar store toys to river rafting or skydiving, she was always there for her family. She was the ultimate babysitter for her grandchildren, the best cheerleader for her sons, and constant support for her husband.
She could spend all night talking away with her mom, brothers, and sisters in Oregon. During those visits, there was not a minute of downtime. Endless fun and laughter were in the air the entire time. She would come back to Utah with new laugh lines every time. Bringing joy to others was her goal in life, and anyone that knew her would agree she far exceeded that goal.
Roxanne worked at the Utah Office of Rehabilitation for 30 years, retiring in 2007. She worked hard to entertain her co-workers, and do a little work on the side! She was very proud that in 2004 she trained for and ran the St. George marathon, beating her son to the finish line.
Roxanne is survived by her husband Mike, two sons, Shane (Kerri) and Drew (Courtney) of Spanish Fork; eight grandchildren; her mother LaRue Bird of Salem, Oregon; her brothers Jerry (Cindy) Bird and Steven Bird of Salem, Oregon, David Bird of Albuquerque New Mexico, and her sister Robin (Art) Bird-Desorcy of Spanish Fork, Utah. She was preceded in death by her father Duane, sister Debbie, brother Jimmy, and grandson Cameron.

I had so much fun with Roxanne. We saw each other through bad times. She was a very good friend and confidant. I can’t believe she’s gone…My love to Mike and family❤️❤️
You are in our thoughts and prayers
Had lots of good times in high school with Roxy, swimming and hanging out up Hobblecreek canyon.
Hugs and prayers to all of you!
I have a lot of memories with Roxanne, from trips, parties, sleep overs, movies. She was always the life of the party.
