Once she retired from the State of New Jersey, she and her husband were ready to make the move to Virginia. They moved to Schuyler, VA in 2004, home of the Walton’s, she was proud of that fact. She resided with her beloved husband Carl A. Ballentine, Sr. until he passed in Aug. of 2022, this left her heartbroken. When she and Carl moved to VA they became foster parents to several children that all knew both of them as mom-mom and pop-pop, she loved children. Roxie looked forward to spring so she and Carl could go camping down at the Jersey shore from May until Oct when they closed down the campgrounds for winter. She enjoyed caring for the wildlife the would visit her backyard in VA, from birds to bears, she loved and feed them all. Roxie was a very personable person, so easy to talk to that she made friends wherever she went, just give her a cup of coffee and she was good to go for hours. Roxie loved to make donations to various charities, so we are asking in Lieu of flowers please donate to Hospice of the Piedmont. She was very happy with the care that she and Carl received in their final days with us. Hospice of the Piedmont, 675 Peter Jefferson Pkwy, Suite 300, Charlottesville VA, 22911.
