Rollande Giroux Obituary

It is with profound sadness that the family of Rollande Giroux announce her sudden passing on Thursday, October 19th, 2023 surrounded by her loved ones at the North Bay Regional Health Centre. Rollande will be missed by her lifelong friend Stephen Dwinnell. She was a loving mother to her daughters Lori Lawton (Lee) and Tracey Collins, and a caring grandmother to Kaitlyn and Tyler. Rollande is predeceased by her parents Cécile Devost and Joseph Giroux, as well as her brothers Patrick (Élise - deceased) and Marcel (Rita). She is survived by her siblings Lionel (Carmen), Raymond, Ronald (Pauline), Diane Northrup (Murray - deceased), Vitale and Suzanne Goulet (Mike). She will be greatly missed by her many nieces and nephews.

Rollande was born and raised in Corbeil, Ontario as the eldest daughter of the family. In her retirement she loved to spend her time with her grandchildren and visiting her family. Rollande was the rock in the family that kept everyone connected. She loved to spend her time baking, reading, and knitting. Over the years, she has knitted many mittens for cold hands for children in our community.

The family would like to express gratitude to the paramedics and the staff at the North Bay Regional Health Centre who provided extraordinary care in Rollande’s final hours.

Visitations will be held on Thursday, October 26th, 2023 from 11:00 to 1:00 with service to follow at McGuinty Funeral Home (North Bay). In lieu of flowers, donations to the Heart and Stroke foundation would be gratefully acknowledged by the family. Online condolences can be shared at
