Roxy Ann Aubrey,

Roxy Ann Aubrey, 85, of Onaway, passed away suddenly Sunday, May 14, 2023 at Otsego Memorial Hospital. She was a loving, kind, and caring, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend and will be dearly missed. 

Roxy was born June 29, 1937 to the late John and Emma (Severance) Burgess in Clio. She worked for many years as the manager of the bookstore in Alpena Community College and will always be remembered of her kindness.

There were many things in life that Roxy enjoyed such as, crafting, knitting, crocheting, decorating and organizing her home, gardening, and loved her flowers. 


But nothing brought her greater joy than spending time with her family especially at family gatherings and her “Sunday Dinners.”

She is survived by her daughter, Lisa Dempsey of Onaway; two great-grandchildren, Brody Dale Dempsey and Willow Grace Dempsey; three nieces, Robin Sauve, Janet Boyd and Mary Boyce; a nephew, Jeff Jones; and many dear friends. Roxy was preceded in death by a son, Johnny Porter; a grandson, Denny Dempsey; and her siblings, Jacklynn Kaiser and Cliff Ames.

Roxy has been taken for cremation from Karpus Hunter & Ross Funeral Home. No services are planned at this time. In lieu of flowers please consider a memorial contribution to Hospice of Michigan or The Alzheimer’s Association. Online condolences may be registered at
