Faces of Caledon - Erika Roux

Today a week ago we had to say our final goodbyes to a Caledon Icon, a title she received with the celebration of Caledon’s 200th birthday.

Erika truly lived up to the title, devoting herself to her journalistic craft for over a span of more than 5 decades, a newshound till the end. She used this platform to be a voice and activist for the community of Caledon to fight for justice, diversity, unity, and equality which led to many positive changes. Her love and passion inspired younger generations and she mentored many.

We salute and thank you for your service.

Mollie (as lovingly called by her husband Japie), will be sorely missed, and will be leaving a huge pair of shoes to be filled.
