He is marrying Clarinda Jeanes, who was married for more than 40 years to the late Milligan College President Don Jeanes. Roe’s wife, Pam, passed away about two years ago.
Roe, during a conference call with reporters, indicated he was sweating Congressional matters that might delay his return to the First Congressional District this weekend.
“I (told leadership) ‘You may be having a vote, but you may be planning to have it without the doctor. He’s got a little appointment Saturday afternoon at Munsey United Methodist Church,’ ” Roe, a retired physician, said. “Clarinda and I are very fortunate to have bumped into each other.”
