It is with great sadness that I share news about a member of our community. Reading Caribbean Express News will pay tribute to Councillor Colette Dennis at a later date.
The following notice was posted on the Reading Borough Council website - Councillor Colette Dennis
It is with great shock and sadness that Reading Borough Council has to announce the passing of sitting Councillor and Deputy Mayoress, Colette Dennis.
Colette, 60, passed away at the John Radcliffe Hospital on 9 June 2023 after she was suddenly and unexpectedly taken ill last Wednesday in Reading and taken straight to Oxford.
The thoughts of everybody at the Council are with her husband, Deputy Mayor Councillor Glenn Dennis, her family and her close friends.
Colette was first elected as a Norcot ward Councillor in May 2022 and was recently re-elected by Norcot residents in May’s Local Borough Elections. As wife to the Deputy Mayor, she held the post of Deputy Mayoress, which she previously held in 2017-18 when Councillor Glenn Dennis was also Deputy Mayor.
Councillor Colette Dennis is survived by her husband, her two sons and her two grandchildren.
