Obituary of Roxene Michele Olson

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Roxene Olson (Richardson) on April 2, 2024.

Born September 6, 1952, Roxene grew up in The Pas, Mb and then went to Selkirk to pursue schooling to become a Psychiatric Nurse.  She was employed in Selkirk for many years as well as working in North Battleford and ending her career in The Pas.  After a brief illness she passed away at the Selkirk Hospital on April 2, 2024.  She will be deeply missed by her only son Kristan, brother Gary (Hilda), and her half-sister Dianne.

She was predeceased by her husband Ron and her parents Alfred and Theresa Richardson as well as numerous aunts and uncles. 

Cremation has taken place and she will be interred with her mother and father in The Pas at a later date.

In lieu of flowers donations to the Canadian Cancer Society would be greatly appreciated.


Early eyes open to new sunshine,

First tears wiped with gentle hands.

Warm hands encourage gentle minds;

Your leadership and my outcome intertwined.

No evil too strong to overcome your grace,

With the greatest care you take my hand;

You heal my wounds and clean my face.

Without motherly love,

How does one stand?

Time moves on as it surely must;

I watched you wither as my heart drops,

Hospital visits,

I begin to lose trust that they’ll heal you

Before your life stops.

You are forever loved,

And forgiven are all your sins.

May you always feel sunshine and gentle winds.
