Died after a short illness on May the 4th, 2022 in her 97th year. Loving wife of Roger Robson (pre-deceased), dear mother of Mark, Kim, Sue and her husband Keith, and Paul and his wife Madalyn. Proud granny of Emma, Sam, Dylan, Megan, Liam, Jack, Bailey and Yohannes.
Bea was born in New Zealand in 1926. She completed her nursing studies before embarking on her world travels. Her adventurous spirit led her to nursing jobs in Australia, England and Canada. She spent some time hitch-hiking around Europe before taking nursing jobs in Toronto and then Chapleau. Bea met her husband Roger on a 2 week canoe trip in Quetico Provincial Park near Thunder Bay. She raised 4 children in Richmond Hill and Dundas before settling in Mississauga.
Bea loved her daily walks and scrabble games and was an avid letter and journal writer. She was also a quiet environmentalist and had her children crushing cans to take to the recycling depot long before recycling became mainstream. Bea will be remembered for her indomitable spirit and her warm and welcoming manner. If desired, donations can be made to Ontario Nature or The Heart and Stroke Foundation. You may also want to play a game of scrabble in her memory, or add a new environmental task to your daily routine.
