Roxanna Lyn Hardy, 57, of Mechanicsville, Maryland, passed away peacefully in her home on
September 16, 2023 with family and friends by her side. Roxanna was born May 24, 1966 to the
late William and Martha Blakeslee. She was raised in Forestville, Maryland as the youngest of

more than a decade. Her final act was the gift of body donation to aid in medical research and
treatment against illness and disease.

In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her brother, Charles Blakeslee, and her
nephew, Joseph “Joey” Rishel.
