Beth W. Robisch, 85, died peacefully after a sudden illness on February 17, 2013 in the Eastern Niagara Hospital in Lockport. She was surrounded by family and friends.
She was predeceased by her parents, Evelyn and Millard Croop; beloved husband, James Waldron; and son, Douglas Chilcott. She is survived by husband, Edwin Robisch; Eugene Chilcott; brother, Robert Croop; sons, Gary and David Chilcott; three grandchildren, Jennifer, Carrie and William; seven great-grandchildren; and six step-children.
Beth loved music, gardening, reading, and making her home beautiful. She was an active member of the Order of Eastern Star and held offices of Worthy Matron and District Deputy Grand Matron. She retired as the Clarence Court Clerk in 1992 after serving 22 years. More recently she dedicated 13 years to the Carleton Lake Board of Directors where she was one of the original residents.
A tree will be planted in Carleton Lakes in her memory. Beth has donated her body to the University at Buffalo School of Medicine to further their teaching and research. A service honoring Beth's love of family and friends will be held at a future date. The family suggests donations to Niagara Hospice, Wounded Warrior Program, or Exley UMC in Wilson.
