DARROCH, Robert of Atwood

Posted by on October 29, 2017

Robert Darroch – of Atwood, passed away on Saturday October 28, 2017 at the age of 64.

Beloved son of Howard Darroch and the late Myrta (Buchanan) Darroch.  Dear brother of Dianne Lichti (Paul) and Michael Darroch (Theresa).  Special uncle of Chad (Heather), Christopher, Matthew (Sarah), Alexander, Melissa, Scott and great uncle of Bennett, Cora and Colton.  Fondly remembered by his aunts, uncles and cousins.

During his life, Bobby developed deep connections with his friends within the Atwood/Listowel community. He valued these friendships very much and enjoyed the kinship provided by them. They provided a “social family” for him that coexisted with his biological family roots. Being a creature of routine, Bobby would visit his comrades daily at Ralph’s Service Centre in Atwood and he was a proud member the Listowel Legion. It is certain that his banter and big laugh will be missed in many of the local meeting places where he was often found with a beer, a pool cue or a dart, happily engaged in a friendly, or sometimes very competitive game. Bobby enjoyed gadgets and technology. He was proud of his cars. He had a soft heart for his niece and nephews. He lived life freely and independently. He will be deeply missed by all who love him.

Relatives and friends are invited to share their memories at the Brenneman Funeral Home, 141 John Street, Atwood (519-356-2382), on Monday October 30 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. and on Tuesday October 31, 2017 from 10:00 till 10:45 a.m. followed by the funeral service at 11:00 a.m. with Rev.

KIEFFER, Berdella Corinne (née Durrer) of Belmore

Posted by on August 30, 2017

Berdella Corinne Kieffer

February 23, 1924 to August 29, 2017

Mom passed away on Tuesday, August 29, with the grace and dignity she has shown all of her life. She was so happy knowing that her five children were surrounding her with love. We know that our dad, George Michael Kieffer, has been waiting for her to join him for almost twenty years, since November, 1997.  And ready to hold her hand since February, 2014 is her grandson, Jordan Ross Strickland.

She is so cherished by her children: Kevin Kieffer and Brenda Leahy, Janice and Paul Strickland, JoAnn and John Kennedy, Marilyn Kieffer and Wayne Evans, and Allan Kieffer. She was so proud of each of her grand and great grandchildren:  Kellen and Rachel, Liam and Ben Kieffer: Leah, Dave and Lila Allen; Colleen and Phil Kerneghan; Daniel Strickland; Michael and Patrick Kennedy; Matt and Jake Evans.

She will be missed by her sister Marjorie Schmalz, sisters- in-law Margaret Durrer, Kay Durrer and Virginia Kieffer, brother-in-law Don Fortune, and many nieces and nephews.

Mom married George Michael Kieffer on June 9, 1949. Together they worked alongside each other in their dairy operation, while raising five children. Although mom and dad did not have the same opportunities, for their children they encouraged, supported and instilled the life-long values of family and friendship, education, music, sports, work, travel, and giving back to your community. Mom exemplified this through her leadership in the CWL, Belmore Seniors Group, 4-H Homemaking, Belmore Curling Club, Director of Teeswater Fair, Belmore Women’s Institute, and the Belmore Happy Group.

After dad passed away, mom moved to the Bellehaven Apartments in Belmore.

She couldn’t have had a better place to thrive for the last twenty years. There was always someone knocking at her door to play cards, quilt, share Monday morning coffee, watch some curling or a ball game, go for a walk, out for lunch, a play or concert, or just sit on the front porch and chat. She had frequent visits from many neighbours and friends of all ages who loved to spend time with mom, which was especially important to her when it became more difficult for her to participate.  Mom and all of us knew we had several special people to call to check in on her, and that she was safe. We are so grateful for mom’s full life and would all aspire to be so fortunate.  We are especially thankful for Dr. Marie Gear, mom’s family doctor for over 30 years who shared our wish and supported us to keep mom in her own apartment.

Visitation will be held at the Tiffin Funeral Home, Teeswater on Friday, September 8th from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. and 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church, Teeswater on Saturday, September 9th, 2017 at 11:00 a.m., with Father Keith Morrison as celebrant.

Interment Sacred Heart Cemetery, followed by a celebration of Mom’s life at the Belmore Community Centre from 12:30 to 6:00 p.m.

Mom loved flowers, but we also know that she would really appreciate instead if donations were made to Jordan Strickland Family Endowment at the YMCA of Western Ontario, Wingham and District Hospital Foundation, Belmore Chamber of Commerce or Sacred Heart Church Building Fund, Teeswater.

Our loss is immeasurable, but so is the love left behind.
