FOUSSE, Robert, 90, on March 23, 2020, and Noel Fern Fousse (nee Kupfrian) 87, on April 9, 2020, both of North Haledon. Robert and Noel met in 1949 and married on July 5, 1952. Robert was a tool and die maker with Lorraine Tool and Die in North Haledon.

This time of year is always a time that I am reminded of how talented Aunt Noel was. I have so many beautiful things that she made for us. We always loved talking to her and Uncle Bob at the family get togethers. I’m very grateful that we got to see her just a few weeks before she passed. I hope that her and Uncle Bob are resting in peace together. Love Amy and Rich

Our Deepest Sympathy goes out to all of you in this time of loss. Noel will be missed greatly by many and especially by me, one of her cyber sisters. She was a truly great friend.

Our condolences we love you both so much and are feeling the pain for you not being able to be with your mom and dad. The flesh part of us wants to hug and kiss them one more time but just think Jesus is doing that for us so for you and Maria and the rest of your family. God bless you all through this time of sorrow. Love always Bob and Sylvia

It’s with a sad heart I send my condolences for the passing of Mom. To all those in the family I send blessings. Many of you may not remember me. But many memories of your parents in North Haledon in Scouting and through friendships. God bless you all at this sad time.
