Roxie Schescke

Roxie Schescke (Tacina Waste Win) age 59, passed away on Sunday, September 12, 2021 in West Richland, Washington surrounded by family.

She was a caring wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister and friend to many. She leaves behind her a legacy that is almost too extraordinary to put into words. Her impact stretches further than the life she created for her loved ones but extended to many more than she will ever know. She was a true role model, community leader, and inspirational business leader . As a Native business owner she proved that we are not limited by our circumstances, with compassion  and perseverance we can overcome anything.

She was born In Omaha, Nebraska on January 16, 1962 but spent her youth in Gothenburg, Nebraska. She has always been an extraordinarily hardworking woman and spent much of her time raising her beautiful family and creating the greatest possible life for them. It was on March 8, 2002 that she married her best friend and love of her life, Tim Schescke. From that point forward it was undoubtedly clear to anyone that came into contact with them that true love certainly does exist. It was in 2005 in Niwot, Colorado where the couple created their business, Indian Eyes LLC. She would go on to achieve many unbelievable things, from being named the National Native Woman Business Owner of the Year to serving on a board for the White House Office of Intergovernmental Affairs. She was involved in countless fundraisers and community projects. She helped raise money for Bikes for Tikes, which provided bicycles for local and Tribal youth. After Hurricane Katrina, she and her team spent 2 years cleaning and rebuilding the city of New Orleans, Louisiana. Giving back and helping others was always important to Roxie, “ Never forget where you came from, and always give back where it’s needed”.

Her Lakota name is translated as “kind hearted woman/generous woman” – Tacina Waste Win.  She was a true Lakota warrior. As a proud Lakota woman, she strived to bring awareness to life on the reservations.  Whether it was donating bicycles to kids, or taking school supplies to elementary students, she always found a way to leave a lasting impression on everybody she met.  Roxie was a true advocate for children.

Above all Roxie cherished the moments she could spend with her huge family. She was truly the anchor of  her family and she will be missed dearly by all. Roxie is survived by her husband Tim Schescke. Her children; Stacia Darling and significant other Kent Heisler, Elijah Donner and spouse Jessica Donner, Justin Schescke and spouse Carrisa Schescke, Joe Schescke and spouse Lala Schescke. She also leaves behind grandchildren; Dominick Loibl and spouse Rachel Loibl, Ethan Loibl, Karliegh Earll, Xavier Donner, Mackenzie Bogus, Maddison Bogus, Naven Homann, Noah Donner, Fisher Schescke, Aalycia Schescke, Waylon Schescke, Mika Schescke, Wyatt Schescke. Great Grandchildren; Liam Loibl, Brantley Loibl, Stella Loibl, Skielynn Loibl. Lakota Parents; Leroy and Bertha. Sister; Patricia Cunningham.Brothers; Rico Enberg, Roger Sr. and Kathy Earll,  Tuffy Morrison (Tricia, Remedy, Kelsey), Leroy Jr. (Megan, Luka, Makya and Kylor) Ashley (Bryson and Braydyn) As well as a long list of cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends.

She is preceded in death by her parents Beverly and Kenneth Earll, her father-in-law Raymond Schescke, grandmother (Unci) Christine Longwarrior-Dunham, nephew Levi Jester.

  • Roxie was my friend growing up with children. We had many wonderful talks. She always had great ideas and was driven to put her ideas to life. Roxie had such a beautiful soul. I was blessed to have her as a friend. Roxie was so giving of herself and kindness that set her apart. She had this contagious Smile and I would always call her ‘Foxy Roxie’. She was beautiful inside and out. Heaven gain an angel and left a hole in my heart. She will be greatly missed. Bless her family and pray they find comfort and hold all those great memories in their hearts. Love you Roxie. 💞

  • Roxie – The world has lost a powerful force for peace, democracy, and leadership. Your tireless role as a leader and advocate for so many will be missed. Your passing has left a gaping hole among the ranks of our indigenous people, but you leave behind a solid foundation for others to build upon. You have inspired me with your story, and I am proud to call you, my friend.
