Born on August 31, 1952 in Peekskill, NY, Roxanne was the oldest of three children, sister to John (Jack) and Nancy (Beth) Bottos. She spent her childhood in Peekskill, NY, studying many different musical instruments. Clarinet, piano, guitar, and vocals were among her favorites. After graduating from Peekskill High School, Roxanne enrolled in Dental School, where she learned the skills to become a full time Dental Assistant. She soon after put her career on hold to marry her high school sweetheart, Kevin J. Scully, and to become a mother to two sons, Kevin J., and Ryan P. Scully. Once the boys became self sufficient, Roxanne rejoined the workforce as a Medical Claims Examiner at Empire Blue Cross and Blue Shield, where she retired after 10 plus years of employment.
Roxanne was preceded in death by her parents, John R., and Estelle (DeGolyer) Bottos. Unfortunately, her husband of 46 years, Kevin, passed away just 2 months after Roxanne, on July 21st, 2019. She is survived by her two sons, Kevin (Evanne) Scully Jr. of Sarasota, FL and Ryan (Jackie) Scully of Medford, NJ; sister Nancy (Michael) Potthast of Cortlandt Manor, and two grandchildren, Connor (9), and Quinn (8) Scully.
A Mass of Christian Burial was held at 10:00AM on Saturday, August 10, 2019 at Assumption Church followed by an Interment at Assumption Cemetery. While extremely sad, the family is encouraged by the belief that Roxanne and Kevin are reunited once again in God’s Kingdom
