December 10, 1924 - September 14, 2020
Roxie Lee Wilburn Headrick, 95, passed away at home on September 14th surrounded by her loving family to whom she gave unconditional love. She was a strong Christian and prayer warrior not only for her family but everyone she encountered. She believed in the power of prayer and always said she couldn't get through a day if the Lord didn't hold her hand and she was packed and ready for Heaven. She will always be remembered for her many acts of kindness which might simply be a card, a phone call to ask about your day or just let you know you were on her prayer list. She found joy in taking care of others and took pride in caring for her home and family. The family will always remember coming home to the wonderful smells from her kitchen which could be her homemade cat-head biscuits & gravy, fried chicken, homemade chicken soup, (which she claimed would heal any illness) or her famous chocolate pie which was a treat enjoyed by family, friends & neighbors. Fortunate to have kept her sharp memory, she never passed up an opportunity to share memories of her childhood and how she learned to make cornbread at age 9 and, along with her sisters, helped care for her twin brothers. She enjoyed creating beautiful pieces of needlework and was an exceptionally skilled quilter. Her real joy however, came from giving them to others, keeping very few for herself. She was preceded in death by infant daughter Mable Loretta, husband & the “Sunshine of Her Life” for 72 years, Carl Headrick, parents Lee and Sadie Wilburn, Brothers Walford Wilburn and Cledith Wilburn, Sisters Mable Waldrop, and Ernesteen Davis. She is survived by Son Ronnie Headrick (Karen), Daughter “Cookie” Headrick Crowson (Mike); Grandchildren Justin Headrick (April), Joshua Headrick (Christine), Misty Crowson Gregory (Keith), Angelia Crowson Healy (Andrew); Great-Grandchildren Hannah & Brentley Headrick, Taylor Gregory, Kristyn Gregory Roberson (Caleb), Georgia & Cambelle Healy; Brother Clifford Wilburn, and many very special nieces and nephews. She was so appreciative of the many cards, phone calls, visits, and prayers from both her immediate family and her church family. She requested that in lieu of flowers memorial donations be made to Pleasant Grove Baptist Church, 3736 Tuckaleechee Pk., Maryville, TN 37804 or Gideon's International, Blount County South Camp, PO Box 4035, Maryville, TN 37802.4035. The family wishes to thank the dedicated & compassionate caregivers Joan Ownby, Liz Carter & Sharon Plemons as well as Dr. Jessica Ivey, and UT Hospice. A special thanks to Lorens Cruze and Neakie Alexander for your many acts of kindness. Due to the current concerns with Covid-19, the family will have a private celebration of life service with grandson, Joshua Headrick & Rev. Greg Long officiating. Interment will take place at Grandview Cemetery. Friends may visit at their convenience from 8:00 AM until 5:00 PM, Thursday, September 17, 2020 at Smith Trinity Chapel.
