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.

FAUBERT, Beulah Mae Faubert - Obituary | Print |

FAUBERT, Beulah Mae -

Our loving mother, Beulah Mae Faubert passed away November 11, 2014 at The Village of Tansley Woods, surrounded by her family and friends.

Beulah was born in 1927 in Chatham; the farming heartland of Ontario.

She was predeceased by her husbad Bernard Faubert, her parents, Georgina and Gilbert St. Denis and her dear brother, Jack. Beulah was introduced to Bernard, whom she deeply fell in love with and married after the Second World War; settling in the town of Chatham. She was a loving and dedicated mother who enjoyed raising her four sons Bob, John, Dave and Rick. She enjoyed spending time with her four daughters-in-law Theresa, Lynne, Phyllis and Camille. Beulah was also a wonderful and patient grandmother who was deeply interested in the lives of Samantha, Bryan, Kelly, Curtis, Ken, Ray and Adam and great- grandmother to Jack, Avery and Stephen. Beulah and Bernard were like a pair of shoes, a perfect match.

They enjoyed the special gift of being able to celebrate over 64 years of marriage together. Beulah is fondly remembered by neighbours and family for her outstanding chocolate chip cookies. It was mentioned by many that Beulah's cookies were nothing less than decadent and were consumed by everyone in short order. She really was the June Cleaver of Rexdale. Unfortunately, due to the untimely passing of Bernard, Beulah found herself alone for the first time at the age of 84. Despite this she continued with her passions including travelling to Chatham, trips to the cottage and enjoyed spending time with her family.

Due to changes in her health, Beulah decided to move to The Village of Tansley Woods Long Term Care in Burlington.

During her stay at Tansley Woods, she found it easy to meet her new neighbours, especially an incredible lady, Sharon Bertram, who became her best friend. She also participated in all the social activities and was a favourite of the nursing staff. Everyone enjoyed her quick wit and easy going charm. Beulah will truly be missed by all of her family and her friends.

Funeral mass will be celebrated on Monday, November 17, 2014 at 10:30 a.m. at St. Benedict Church, 2194 Kipling Ave., Toronto.

As expressions of sympathy, memorial donations to be made to the Alzheimer Society would be appreciated. Special thanks to the Staff at Tansley Woods in Burlington for the loving care given to Beulah and the wonderful support extended to her family.

"Those we love remain with us for love itself lives on
and cherished memories never fade because a loved one's gone."
