Roxanne Swennen

(née Collette)

Peacefully at the Notre Dame Health Centre on Tuesday, September 12, 2023, Roxanne “Roxxie” Claire Collette Swennen passed away at the age of 41 years.

She leaves to mourn her husband of 18 years, Joel Swennen; her parents, Gilbert and Louise Collette; her sister Julie (Vance) De Santis; her brother Chris (Rachel) Collette; her parents-in-law, Jean and Suzanne Swennen; her sister-in-law Jeannine Swennen; her brother-in-law Jonathan (Jennifer) Swennen, along with her nieces and nephews, Samuel, Sydney, Miracle (Nathan), Curtis, Elliot, Sahara, Catainya, Denver and Benton.  Also mourning her passing are her Godmother Claire Sabourin, Joel’s grandfather Henri Swennen, and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. She will be sadly missed by her family, many friends and especially her dog Debbie and her cat Kitty. Roxanne is predeceased by her eldest sister Julie Louise Collette in 1975.

A short girl with a big laugh, Roxxie tried her best to look at the positive in every situation.  Some days it worked, other days not so much. But like she would say “I just have to ride the wave”.
