Roxanna Norris Polk born in Coatesville, PA and lived in Gallatin, TN born on October 25, 1954 and died January 31, 2017. Survived by her three children, Todd Polk, Zack Polk, and Hannah Polk, and two granddaughters Dakota and Anabelle Polk; her parents Robert and Olive Norris and two brothers Butch Norris and wife Kay, and Michael Norris and wife Angie, and her ex-husband Walt Polk to whom she was married 26 years. She had many extended family members too numerous to list, and multitudes of friends. Her precious granddaughter Chloe preceded her in death.

Words on a page can never encompass the magnitude of Roxanna’s impact on so many lives. She had an infectious laugh, a genuine care and love for people, a passion for Jesus and sharing His love, and incredible business savvy. Roxanna was a keeper of people, a true friend, an encourager, and a dispenser of hope to all she came in contact.

Everyone who knew her is a better person today because of her involvement in his or her life. Whether it was being a lifelong friend, attending a class she taught at church, or simply purchasing a prom dress, you always felt the explosion of love from her personality. She was a daughter, a sister, a mother, a grandmother, a businesswoman, a leader among leaders, and a friend.

She wore her red lipstick with style and grace believing in the symbolism of her “doorpost being covered”. Death did not win; cancer did not prevail. The faith she put on her lips and spoke out of her mouth carried her to a place where cancer is no more and death is defeated. No grave can hold this woman down!

“…He gives a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning, festive praise instead of despair. In their righteousness they will be like great oaks that the Lord has planted for His own glory.” Isaiah 61:3 NLT

    Thank you Roxanna, for the many testimonies you shared, at your shop in Gallatin. The times we would pray together, and also sing along with the beautiful music you always shared. You was an inspiration to anyone who ever met you. You always looked your best, and did every thing you could to make the customer happy. I love all the clothes I had purchased from you for my grandchildren, and I am sure Alicia still has them, packed away. Your love for Jesus Christ, was apparent, to all of us. I pray that God will give your family comfort and peace at this time and always.

    Roxanna, I didn’t know you very well but the NYC trip we were on together with Sheila & other friends made a lasting impression on me. Your love of God & your bravery in witnessing for Him was remarkable. As much as I hated that your life here on earth had ended, I know you are now healed and rejoicing and also reaping the rewards of your great faith.

    I’m seriously glad I met a Christian, dear, sweet, funny lady who worked around the corner from where I worked somewhere in the 1990’s, to church, to neighbors, to missions, to just being friends who laughed together, cried together, and just times with her grateful living, even thru her last part of life in a weakened body, as I’m thankful to have been around her one more time… she will be missed here for just a vapor in time as she is living in heaven… your impact in your life is your legacy now Roxy… miss you Roxanna, see you soon…

    There are really no words to express how Roxanna has affected so many people in her years on this earth. She was the kind of person that you just wanted to be around, to be her best friend. She always made you feel that “you” were the most important person to her. So many people loved, respected and appreciated her. We have all prayed so long for healing for Roxanna and maybe she was healed…for just the right amount of time. None of us know why a wonderful person as Roxanna does not recover, it’s not meant for us to know. But, we do know where she is and that is what is important. I pray for her family, I know they will miss her most. Just know that she was and is well loved and will be missed.
