Yes it will- provided the materials used in the walls are standard drywall and studs, and not brick or any type of concrete the Roku will pick up the signal from the Xfinity router just fine. Generally you're good for up to around 40-50 feet through a couple of walls. The 20 feet distance in a closet is not uncommon in many installs I've come across.
