Monica Shannon Roux, 22, passed away on Thursday May 10, 2018 at her home in Uxbridge; leaving behind precious memories that will be cherished by her family forever.
Monica was a caring and smart young woman with a tenderness and love for both people and animals that gave her true joy and happiness. A graduate of Uxbridge High School Class of 2014, Monica was passionate about art and drawing. She enjoyed caring for animals; especially her basset hound Lucy. After high school, Monica worked for several years; first at the Children’s Korner Day Care Center in Milford and then as a nanny to a young boy in Grafton. She took general education courses at the Community College of Rhode Island in hopes of attaining a degree in Childhood Development. Monica loved nature and had dreams to live a simple, quiet life in the mountains of Colorado, free of noise and complexities of life.
Monica was born April 8, 1996 in Framingham, the daughter of Paul and Gwen (Perrotta) Roux. In addition to her parents, she is survived by her twin brothers, Michael F. Roux and Brandon P. Roux, age 17, both of Uxbridge, her grandparents, Frank and Mary Perrotta of Newbury, NH, Charlene Fahey of Milford, MA and Paul Roux of Sulpher, OK. She also leaves behind many aunts, uncles, cousins and close friends, all whom will miss her beyond comprehension. Monica truly loved her brothers, who have always showed her unconditional love and support.
