Renee Collins

February 6, 1976 ~ July 26, 2021 (age 45)


It is with the deepest sorrow that we announce the unexpected passing of our dearly loved Renee on July 26, 2021. She leaves behind her mother Linda, brother Bill (Carly), nephew Sean, sister Andrea (John), Aunt Pat, cousins Mary Ann and Jamie and many others who cared for her.

Renee had more than her fair share of struggles but she still managed to live her life to the fullest of her ability. For someone who has had to battle for life since day one, she had a determination and desire for life that most people could learn from.

Special thank you to the supportive teachers of St Raphael, especially her phone buddies Maria and Mary ; to Christine and Colleen of Community Living Etobicoke ; to John and Yendi of Christian Horizons Lakeshore SIL; and to her “ big sister “ Michelle. 

The compassionate team from the Surrey Place , especially Jennifer, Dr. Sullivan and Shirley supported Renee during some turbulent times.

Our deep appreciation to Dr Quigley for her endless patience and kindness in treating Renee’s many health issues.

The tender compassionate care shown by the nurses of 4J and 6J eased our anxiety.

Renee was lucky to have many special kind people in her life….too many to mention individually. Just know that your acceptance and friendship gave her much happiness.


In memory of Renee,  hug someone and  tell them how much you love them. That’s what she did every day.

Cremation has already taken place.

A memorial service for family and close friends will be held on Sunday August 15, 2021 at St John Chapel Dixie from 1-3 pm. A virtual service will also be taking place.

Please contact Pat, Renee’s aunt , at kframe@bell.net to confirm your attendance or for questions about the virtual link.


You can still show your support by sending flowers directly to the family, or by planting a memorial tree in the memory of Renee Collins
