Roxane was born in Devils Lake ND on August 20, 1962 to Jeanette Peltier and Steven Charboneau. She grew up in the Devils Lake area until she was 11 years old, relocating to California during her teen years. At 19 years old she came back to ND where she spent the next few years helping and catching up with family. Then in 1991 she met the love of her life Frank "Son" Cavanaugh. They became husband and wife in a small ceremony with both of their mothers present on October 22, 1993 at her new mother-in-law's residence, followed by the usual car line of honking loaded down with new nieces and nephews.

The children they spoiled and loved over the years were their pets that included cats and dogs, with a few selected special like Fox. Roxane or "Rox/Roxy" to those who were close to her, enjoyed new hobbies that she picked up and kept her busy especially crafts she made that were unique and put on display in her home.
