Date of birth: March 6 1956
Date of death: December 5 2018
Roxie Lynn Phillips, 62, of Keizer, Oregon, passed away on December 5, 2018 in McMinnville, Oregon.
She was born on March 6, 1956, to Floyd Benjamin and Thelma Josephine (Walhood) Ellingson in Bremerton, Washington.
She grew up in the Puget Sound of Washington, and the beauty of the region always had her heart. She moved to Salem, OR about 15 years ago to be closer to her family. As a young mother, she worked hard to achieve a degree at Olympic College, and become owner and accountant of her own firm, Associated Accounting, Inc. She had a witty sense of humor, and could always make you laugh. She would do anything for her family and friends, and she was well loved by all who were near and dear to her. She also loved her cats, Pretty Little Kitten and Rocket. She greatly missed her parents and friends who went before her, and her beloved dog, Junior. She especially enjoyed playing cards, games, puzzles, coloring, a good mystery/suspense book or show, and singing along to some groovy rock and roll!
Roxie is survived by her daughter, Stacie Lynn Watts; son Nathaniel Floyd Steinberger; granddaughter, Brianna Rochelle Conn; grandsons, Nickolas Nathaniel Steinberger, Zaren Wentz; sisters, Jane Davis, Vicky Persson; nephews, Gregory Greer, Jerry Greer; niece, LeeAnn Davis; cousins Joyce Knauss, Jackson Walhood and Sharilyn Emhoff. She was preceded in death by her parents, brother, Charles Ellingson; uncles Irving “Sonny” Walhood, Obie Walhood, Dutch Walhood, Reuben Walhood, Ole Walhood, Cecil Ellingson, Minor Ellingson; aunts Mable Jenson, Alice Yeasley, Joy Olson and cousin, Wayne Walhood.
A memorial service will be held Saturday, February 9th at 1 pm at The River Church 4660 Portland Rd NE, Salem, OR 97305.

Candle lit by Tracy Roxie, you taught me one of the most valuable things, and I still use it and try to teach it to others, "don't ask why!" "Why is not important." It has helped me to focus on what is important in life. Such simple words yet so profound. On a lighter note you were the best boss, we had some serious laughs. Miss you girl!
