Roxanne "Roxy" Lynn Young, 16 months, of McCordsville, passed away on November 12, 2022. Roxy was born to her loving parents, Robert and Anahi Young, on July 7th, 2021 in Indianapolis.
“Foxy Roxy” was the delight of her family’s life. Her joy and spunkiness could bring a smile to even a stranger’s face. From the minute she could crawl, Roxy was determined to do everything like her big brother and big sister. For example, in sticking to her Argentine roots, Roxy would crawl onto the soccer field, like Messi, in the middle of her siblings’ games. She had no fear, and her sweet but sassy look could always get her out of any trouble.
Although she may have been small, Roxy was mightier than most. She loved to show how tough she was. In the end, she became a hero by giving the ultimate gift of life to others. Roxy’s sweet legacy will not only live on through her family’s cherished memories but through her lucky donor recipients forever.
In addition to her parents, Roxy is survived by her protective brother; Cooper, caring sister; June, affectionate grandparents; Bernardino & Lucia Arias and Robert Young, along with numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
Roxy is preceded in death by her beautiful grandmothers; Rosa Briffa & Lori Young.
Visitation for Roxy will be held at Nativity Catholic Church in Indianapolis on Monday, November 21, 2022 from 5:00pm-7:00pm. A Mass of Christian Burial will be at the church on Tuesday, November 22, 2022 at 11:00am with burial immediately following at Calvary Cemetery.
