ROXIE LOUISE SOSENKO, 81, beloved mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, passed away on May 20, 2023, in Fort Worth, TX. She was born on July 12, 1941, in Alma, WV, one of three children born to Ernest and Martha (Thomas) Tennant. Even though Roxie was born in Tyler County, her family moved to Weirton, WV, where her father worked in the steel mill. She graduated from Weir High School in 1959. While working as a lifeguard at the Millsop Community Center, she met Art Sosenko, who later became the love of her life. They were married on November 18, 1961, and together they built a loving family. Art, who preceded Roxie in death on August 14, 1998, provided for their family as the Superintendent of the B.O.P., while Roxie dedicated herself to creating a warm and nurturing home. She pursued her passion as a beautician and showcased her exceptional talent as a seamstress. Notably, she handcrafted her daughter’s wedding dress and designed the Weir High Cheerleading uniforms. Roxie also had a knack for decorating and transforming spaces with her creative touch. In her leisure time, Roxie enjoyed golfing at the Williams Country Club, where she not only found joy in the sport but also became the nine-hole league champion. She was an active member of the Ladies Golf Association, forming lasting friendships with her lady friends. Roxie’s artistic abilities extended beyond sewing and golf; she mastered various crafts and was self-taught as an artist. Roxie was a member of the Saint Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church. In life, she was always involved in her children’s activities. Their friends would always stop at their home to sit and talk with Roxie. She had an amazing volunteer spirit, always contributing to her community. In addition to her parents and her husband, Roxie was preceded in death by her sister, Diana Campbell. Roxie’s legacy lives on through her two daughters, Jennifer (Brad) McCool and Jessica (Bruce) Lamp; her son, Eric (Darlene) Sosenko; her ten grandchildren, Chloe and Ian Sosenko, Ella (Alex) Dieringer, Sydney (Ryan) Tomasi, Blair (Jared) Reed, Adam and Logan Schroth, Meghan Marshall, Matt (Ashley) and Jordan Lamp; seven great grandchildren, Brantley and Myles Lamp, Michael, Anna and Emily Marshall, Truett and Tatum Reed; and her brother, William “Bill” Tennant.
