Roxanne Elaine Reber, 54
Beloved daughter, sister, and aunt passed away February 20th in Overland Park, Kansas of complications from chemotherapy treatment, following surgery last Christmas Eve. She had remained cheerful throughout and her death came without warning.
Roxanne had a long successful career in commercial design and move management. After attending the University of Kansas where she was a Gamma Phi Beta she finished her senior year at California School of the Arts and earned a Fine Arts Degree in Commercial Interior Design. She later formed Reber Design Management and enjoyed working with her clients and co-horts in the Kansas City area.
Roxanne’s work history was comprised of interior design, ergonomic training and development, and move management for major corporations such as Sprint and AT & T. She was a professional member of the International Interior Design Association.
Roxanne exhibited a natural grace as a child, and led the high-kicking Trojanette dance team at Andover, Kansas High School. Later her high-speed trips back and forth (Wichita-Lawrence) set new records, but she never creased a fender.
Roxanne is survived by her loving family, Father and Mother: Ralfe and Sondra Reber; Brother: R. D. Reber, Jr.; Sisters: Marta (Larry) Warren and her children Erin (Ben) Clarke, Elizabeth O’Neill, and Elaine O’Neill; Jennifer (Alan) Poole and their children Emma Poole and James Poole; and half-sister Carol Reber Wilson and her children Jennifer Wilson and Brett Wilson.
Visitation will be held at Signature Funerals, 8019 State Line Rd., Kansas City, MO, Saturday, February 23 from 3:00-5:00 pm.
