Obituary of Faye Klingbeil





“Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us every day - unseen, unheard but always near, still loved, still missed and held so dear.” Unknown Author


Marjorie Roberta Faye Klingbeil (nee Blackwell) passed away peacefully at Peterborough Regional Health Centre on Sunday September 27, 2020 at 84 years of age. Faye was born on October 11, 1935 in Peterborough, Ontario. For 60 years, she was the beloved wife of Herbert Norman Klingbeil. Faye and Norm met through the Anglican Youth Group and married on September 3, 1960. They just recently celebrated 60 years of marriage. Faye was deeply proud of her two daughters Kim Blackwell (Jason Craig) and Karen Klingbeil (Ian Smith) and absolutely adored her grandchildren: Maude Rose Craig and Keiffer and Hunter Smith and Liam Anderson. Faye was predeceased by her beloved parents Marjorie and Lewis Blackwell and by her siblings Gordon Blackwell, Barbara Quinlan and Norma Klue. She was a lifelong resident of Peterborough and a member of the congregation of All Saints’ Anglican Church, for her entire life.
