Roxanna J. Foreman

Roxanna J. Foreman, 78, of Bucyrus died Tuesday evening, April 24, 2018 at Heartland of Bucyrus where she had been residing with failing health since October.



She was born in Richland County on July 26, 1939 to the late Richard O. and Ramona M. (Shephard) Grubb. She went to Madison Comprehensive High School where she played every sport she could and was a majorette. She was a beautiful young lady and worked as a model including as a television spokesmodel for RCA. This led to her being discovered by Clairol for which she worked as a national field supervisor in addition to her modeling in Cleveland and New York. While calling on Clady’s Drug store in Bucyrus, a Clairol client, James E. Foreman saw her from his office window at Baumoel’s and went across the street to introduce himself to the beautiful girl. A romance was kindled, and they were married November 6, 1966. Jim preceded her in death on August 7, 1979.



After starting her family, Arabian Show Horses became her passion. She earned a degree from OSU-ATI in Wooster, ran a state accredited equine college with her son known as The Winds of Gabriel Equestrian and Training Center, and published the equestrian periodical, “News and Views.” She later moved to Columbus where she worshiped at World Harvest Church and worked for the Columbus Dispatch before returning to Crawford County eight years ago.



Roxanne is survived by two sons, Jeff Foreman of Perry, Florida and Doug (Carol) Foreman of Bucyrus; two granddaughters, Katherine Foreman and Krystal (Chaz) Zeigler; and two great grandchildren, Arianna and Brody. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brother, Jack S. Grubb and daughter-in-law, Diane Foreman.
