Our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend, Roxie Anna Hales McGuire, age 92, passed away April 3, 1998, in Sandy, Utah.
Born November 21, 1905, to Albert William Hales and Maud Emma Chamberlain in Riverside, Utah. Married Herbert Stanton McGuire in Logan, Utah in July 1923.Roxie began and ended her long life in Utah, but lived in Southern California for over 60 years. She was a very talented and energetic woman and pursued many interests over her lifetime. She and husband Herb raised three children, managed and played in a popular dance band, "Mac's Harmony Night Hawks", in the 1930's and the 1940's, owned and ran a thriving turkey ranch-Roxie's hobby. She served in musical capacities as ward organist for over 40 years and as pianist in a local club for many years where she made many life-long friends.
Roxie loved her family and her church. She lived a life of service with joy and love. She will be remembered as a loving, caring mother and grandmother. Her last years were difficult after she developed Alzheimer's and spent her days in her own little world but always retaining her gentle, sweet, loving personality.
She is survived by her three children, son, Stanton Lynn (Coreen) McGuire, Provo, Utah; daughters, Bettie Jane McGuire Camp, Salt Lake/Midway, Utah, and Patricia Ann McGuire (Tom) Warburton, Pahrump, Nevada. She will also be missed by her 14 grandchildren; 41 great-grandchildren; two great-great grandchildren; a sister, Alice Hales Young; and brother, Rex Hales of Southern California.
