The Swaby & Alexander families are saddened to announce the loss of Renee, who passed away peacefully on June 2nd, 2021, at Brampton Civic Hospital in her 79th year. Wife to Lloyd George Swaby for 30 years and proud mother to Charles & Mary Alexander, Yvonne Alexander Inman & Brian Inman, and Muriel Alexander. Renee will also be dearly missed by her stepson, Sean Swaby, grandchildren (Lee, Matthew, Rachel, & Keanna), and great-grandchild (Isla Jane) as well as her many nieces & nephews. She is survived by her sister Gwen and brother Francis Didier.
Renee is best remembered for her devout faith, generosity, sense of humour and her absolutely phenomenal meals. She loved helping, and feeding, her family, friends and even strangers. Whether it was spending time joking around with her nephews and nieces, or spending time with her siblings in Dominica, she had a light and loving nature which will be missed by all who knew her. She was proud of her work as a Medical Technician and enjoyed the friendships she made with her team at Cybermedics.
Looking down from heaven, reunited with so many loved ones, we know she is experiencing more joy that she ever imagined possible in this life. For those who knew her well, we can hear her saying “ou teau saut!” (loose translation is: don’t be ridiculous/silly) to us if we grieve for too long.
We will miss you Renee and will keep you in our thoughts, memories and prayers forevermore.
Renee loved plants, carnations, and roses.
