Roxa “Roxie” Wagar

4.2.15.obit Wagar Roxa

Roxa “Roxie” Wagar, 97, died Thursday, March 26, 2015, morning at Roosevelt Medical Center in Culbertson, where she had been resident for the last five years.  
The first of six children born to Leroy and Luetta (Snyder) Dickinson, she was born Nov. 7, 1917, in Scobey. When she was in eighth grade, she quit school. There was no bread in the house, so she stayed home to bake bread — and never went back.
She was married in May 1935 to Alfred Wagar in Scobey. They had five children: Pauline, Irene, Ellamae, Eugene and Sharon. They moved to Wheeler, while Alfred worked on the Fort Peck Dam, then returned to Scobey, where she worked in restaurants as a cook and baker.
In 1965, they left to help Irene and her family with the bar they owned in Greycliff, then later moved to Great Falls to work in a grocery store with Irene’s family. They then moved to Billings, where she and Alfred volunteered as foster grandparents.
In 1986, they moved to Minneapolis, Minn., to help Sharon with her children, while she returned to college; and in 1989 they returned to Plentywood, where she volunteered at Glenwood.
Alfred died in March 1991. On Roxie’s 90th birthday, she gifted each of her children with some silver dollars he had saved over the years. She moved to Culbertson, where she enjoyed going to Senior Citizens and her hobbies of reading, working puzzles (to prevent Alzheimer’s) and embroidering dishtowels.
In 2010, she entered the Roosevelt Memorial Nursing Home after an injury to her foot. She enjoyed all the activities of exercise, singing, and coffee time.
She is survived by her children, Pauline Thomas, Irene Cole, Ellamae Iverson, Eugene Wagar and Sharon Bahma; and numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren; a brother, Elmer Dickinson; and a sister, Maxine Rogers.
She was also preceded in death by infant daughter Edna; and siblings, Hazel, Arthur and Vernon.
Funeral services were held at Saturday, March 28. Rev. John Nadasi officiated at the service at the Scobey United Methodist Church. Interment was in Scobey Cemetery.
