Roxane L. Gabrielson, 66, a longtime Certified Public Accountant in Salisbury and Salisbury Zoo supporter, died Friday, Dec. 31, 2021, at her home.

Born in Philadelphia, she was the daughter of the late Roland and Leone “Lee” Kurtz.

A graduate of Souderton Area High School, she received an associate's degree in Fine Arts from Montgomery County Community College in Pennsylvania, a bachelor’s degree in Accounting and a master’s degree in Business Administration from Wilmington College.

She joined PKS & Associates in 2012, after working at other Salisbury-area firms and having her own business. She was a member of the Maryland Association of Certified Public Accountants and American Institute of CPAs.

She was formerly a resident of Whitehaven, where she served on the Whitehaven Heritage Association.

She was a longtime member of the Delmarva Zoological Society, where she was the former Board Chair.

She had a love for gardening and was well known for raising Great Danes.

She is survived by her husband, Stefan Gabrielson of Salisbury; her brother and sister-in-law, Jeffrey and Linda Kurtz of Greenwood; and two nieces, Jessica Snow of Oswego, N.Y., and Nichole Kurtz of Baltimore.

A memorial gathering will be held at a later date. Arrangements are in the care of Holloway Funeral Home in Salisbury.
