Roxie Joy Logan, of Port Lavaca, entered Heaven July 9, 2019. She was born Aug. 12, 1937 in Carrizo Springs to Plez and Clara Dryden.
She believed in the love of the good Lord, the kindness of people and the healing power of holding or petting a favorite dog. Roxie graduated from the University of Corpus Christi in 1958 where she met the love of her life, James Edward Logan. She and Eddie were married in 1959 and shared almost 60 years of marriage. She taught almost 30 years in the Port Lavaca school district.
She is survived by sister, Boots Draper; nephew, Mack Mandell; nieces, Cindy Mandell Eppes, Stephanie Logan Gilbert, Brenda Johnson, Marty Samsel and Karen Anderson; Dusty, and a part Chihuahua/terrier who believes that humans are best served as dog furniture, and Daisy, a white poodle found running the streets of Victoria who still runs the house as much as she did the city streets. She also leaves behind a wealth of the most caring and giving friends one could wish for in this life.
She was preceded in death by her parents; husband; and a whole host of dogs, which she adopted and loved throughout the years.
Believing that death was no reason to stop serving others, Roxie chose to donate her body to science so no interment will be held.
A reception honoring her life will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, July 20, at First Baptist Church of Port Lavaca. It would be an honor to the family for those who knew Roxie through the years to attend.
