Riley Jaiden Roxbury, 8, of Butler gained her ladybug wings Thursday while surrounded by her loving family and friends. She was born March 31, 2009, in Pittsburgh, the adored daughter of Mark Roxbury and Lynsie Loeffler Roxbury; and twin sister of Kloe. Riley's favorite activities included hunting with her dad; going to the nail salon with her mom and twin sister; playing her favorite board games, such as Minion Pop, Uno, Old Maid and Go Fish; listening to music and dancing; riding her quad; playing nurse and doctor on everyone; and playing with her beloved dogs. She had many favorite things but most of all she adored Paw Patrol, Superheroes, the Steelers and "Big Ben," playing with baby dolls and her Supergirls dolls and sitting on the heating vent for her "warm air." Her favorite items were her dryer sheets, pens and binkies. Riley's personality was much larger than her size and her love of life and laughter was contagious. She will be dearly missed and lovingly remembered by the many people who have been touched by her amazing personality. She leaves behind to cherish her memory, her father and step-mother, Mark Thomas (Kim) Roxbury; her mother, Lynsie Sue (Kurt Kern) Loeffler Roxbury; her twin sister, Kloe Nicol Roxbury; and her stepsisters, Elizabeth and Shaelynn Hauserman; her paternal grandparents, John (Donna) Roxbury; and her maternal grandparents, John (Kathy) Loeffler; her aunts and uncles, Todd (Angela) Roxbury, Melissa (Jason) Sutton and C.J. (Jaci Givens) Loeffler; her cousins, Cameron and Kendell Roxbury, Logan and Sydney Miller and Cooper Sutton; and her five dogs, Kane, Takoda, Maggie, Tucker and Schmoo Schmoo. She was preceded in death by paternal and maternal great-grandparents.
