Roxie is the youngest child of Hawk and the late
Sarah Shayne. She grew up in Oklahoma, and her childhood was anything
In 1984, when we first met Roxie, she was living
with an abusive boyfriend. This angered her older sister, Reva, who
requested that Roxie join her in Springfield.
Though her move to town was supposed to help
balance and to straighten out her life, it didnít work that way at all.
She met a man who began to blackmail her about her life
in Oklahoma. She also regained some childhood memories and discovered
that she had been raped when she was only 12 years old.
In 1985, Roxie suffered amnesia while on a
snowmobile in Alaska. The only place that she could find help was in a
nearby brothel. The owner offered her a job, and Roxie (now known as

an extended care facility by herself. She was writing again, and she had
improved drastically. This was in 1999.
Roxie was a great character. She was
even though she was portrayed as mentally unstable. Considering what she had dealt with in her tumultuous life,
it's not surprising that she had problems dealing with it all.
