Carol attended Bennetto Public School and Central High School. She worked for a year and then attended Hamilton Teachers' College where she met her husband George and they have been lovers and friends and walked down life's paths together for 52 years.

After graduating from Hamilton Teachers' College, Carol taught in Scarborough and then moved to Sutton after George and she were married in 1965. Carol continued her teaching career in York Region and in the evenings she went to York University.

Carol will be sorely missed. Few people have touched as many lives as she has and we simply cannot imagine life without her.

She is also survived by her sisters Dorothy Gallagher, Shirley (Albert) Hubley, Winnie (Ralph) Burgwin and brother Murray (Shirley) Durling, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

She is predeceased by her husbands Daniel Harber and Bob Jacobs, sister Margaret Veinot and brother Eric Durling.

Evelyn was born in Halifax, NS. on July 10, 1923, the third of seven children and was always a great help to her Mother.

At the age of 17 years she married her great love, Daniel Roy Harber, just before he was deployed overseas to fight in WWII. They had two children and moved to Windsor, ON.

From an early age, her main guideposts in life were her family and her church. The church choir was a special joy and she remained involved until her early 80’s. As a church member she worked with Meals on Wheels, always ready to provide a helping hand or just read or listen if that was the need.

She took pride in being a homemaker, a mother and a mother in law. Always took time to help or train with housework, knitting, cooking, babies or whatever was needed. She had a quick wit a ready smile and was always ready for an adventure. She was never happier than when she was around family and cooking for a crowd.

She loved her garden, but always missed her sisters and the ocean. So after Dan retired they moved back to Nova Scotia.

Evelyn was kind generous and always welcoming with her lovely smile. She set an excellent example of the importance of family and family values, helping others and keeping a cheerful, positive outlook on life.

A heartfelt thank you to the caring staff of Park Lane Terrace for all of the love and support.

A memorial service will be held in Brantford on Saturday.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Evelyn’s memory to the Alzheimer Society of Brant or to Park Lane Terrace.

“However long we live or wherever we go,
her beautiful smile and positive outlook on life will always be with us.

CROFOOT, Robert William 'Bob' Crofoot Obituary | Print |

CROFOOT, Robert William 'Bob' -

Crofoot_RobertBob went to be with the Lord, on November 11, 2014 at the Columbia Forest Long Term Care Home in his 87th year after suffering from Alzheimers. He passed away peacefully with family by his side.

Bob is survived by Lois, his loving wife of 62 years, by his children Bruce (Alice) Crofoot, Ken (Jan) Crofoot, and Linda (Chris) Pernfuss, and by his grandchildren Lisa, Jeffrey, Ben, Lucas, Alvin and Julia.

Bob was born in Brockville. He was the son of a Baptist minister and moved frequently, living in many cities across Canada, including Simcoe, where he met Lois at Simcoe High School. He attended McMaster University and then worked briefly for several companies before joining BP Canada and moving to Montreal.

While with BP he also held positions in Kitchener and Toronto. Bob was a well- liked and respected businessman who approached his work as he did his life, with integrity and Christian values. He made many friendships that lasted a lifetime.

Bob retired in 1988 and after 9 years of retirement in Peterborough, he and Lois moved back to Kitchener/Waterloo. Bob was blessed with a full life and had many interests. He was a skilled athlete playing hockey, baseball, badminton, squash, golf and curling. He greatly enjoyed his annual fishing trips initially with his sons, later with his fishing pals from work and finally with his grandsons.

Bob was an avid golfer, having held memberships at Kanawaki in Montreal, St. Georges in Toronto, Kawartha in Peterborough and Galt Country Club. Bob was active throughout his life in the Baptist Church participating in the choir and in finance and management and for the Baptist Convention where he held positions on the Finance Board. In Kitchener-Waterloo Bob has been a loyal member of Highland Baptist Church.

In the latter part of his life, Bob loved his role as 'Grandpa Cro'. He gained so much pride and joy watching his grandchildren’s achievements in the sports that were so dear to his heart, and in sharing with them story after story about his own life.

Bob’s family praises God for his wonderful life. We would like to thank everyone who has been so caring and helpful as life became more difficult for Bob. We would like to say a special thank you to all of the staff at Columbia Forest who truly cared for Bob throughout his stay with them. You became family to him and we appreciate everything you did.

The complete funeral service will be held on Saturday, November 15th at 11 am at Highland Baptist Church, 135 Highland Rd. W., Kitchener. Cremation to follow.

Donations may be made to Highland Baptist Church or the Alzheimer Society.
