Roxan Gail Spence-Schick (47) passed away February 2, 2020, at home in Horseshoe Bend, Idaho. Roxan was born, February 27, 1972, to Floyd and Linda Yonker in Boise, Idaho. She attended school in Idaho City until high school, when she attended Garden Valley High School. As a little girl, Roxan did some exciting things - one of the most memorable trips was going to Kake, Alaska, and spending time with her grandparents.
In 1990, Roxan gave birth to the first love of her life, her daughter Ashley. She married her first husband Kirk Marston in 1991. In 1993, she married Eric Spence and the couple welcomed two more children, Kevin and Brooke. The two decided to divorce but remained close friends up to her passing. On July 3, 2016, Roxan reunited with a friend from elementary school, Kris Schick, after being apart for 31 years. Sparks flew and the two were married on December 23, 2016. They settled down in Horseshoe Bend with their beloved Olde English bulldogge, Dozer. Roxan enjoyed all things outdoors - muddin’, dirt bikes, fishing or hunting. As long as there was good company of family or friends, she was always down for the adventure. She loved the sunshine, and you could often find her with her coffee in the morning soaking in the rays of the gorgeous day. Aside from her own three children, her five grandchildren sparked so much joy in her life, and she enjoyed the time spent with them. Roxan had a smile that lit up a room and a laugh that was contagious to all around her. Her presence will be irreplaceable, and she will be missed beyond measure.
Roxan is survived by her husband Kris Schick; children Ashley (Matt) Elliott of Idaho City, Kevin (Catelyn) Spence of Emmett and Brooke (Blake) Spence of Middleton; ex-husband/friend Eric Spence of Emmett; her mother Linda (Lee) Blough of Nampa; siblings Staci (Bruce) Baumhoff, Amanda (Russell) Wood, Rodney (Dee) Yonker and Carla (Curt) Hammons; grandchildren Jared, Bentley, McKenna, Emmalyn and Colton; and her beloved dog Dozer. Roxan is preceded in death by her father Floyd Warren Yonker and her maternal grandparents Roger and Iola Eno.
Roxan loved her daddy and since his death has missed him fiercely. A celebration of life and potluck for Roxan is set to take place on her dad’s birthday (something she would have wanted) at the Community Hall in Idaho City, Idaho, February 29, 2020, at 2:30pm. Address: 206 W. Commercial Street, Idaho City, Idaho.
