Nova Bennett Rogers


February 6th, 1934
March 5th, 2020

Passed away peacefully at the Barrie Memorial Hospital on March 5, 2020 at the age of 86. Nova was predeceased by her husband of 39 years, Leslie Rogers, as well as by her second husband Andrew Fawcett. She was also pre-deceased by her brothers Bruce and Ron.
She is survived by her daughter, Deborah (Randy), as well as her two sons, Terry (Esty) and Brad (Jane), and their families. She is lovingly remembered by her seven grandchildren; Sarah (Ian), Kerry (Patrick), Erica (Jeffrey), Diana (Jarad), Richard, Leslie and Julie, and seven great-grandchildren; Kieran, Maelle, Alina, Emory, Fiona, Miranda and Marshall. Nova’s home was always surrounded by flowers and filled with love and the smell of fresh baked cakes and cookies.
Nova was a lifelong member of the Women’s Institute and a charter member of the United Church Women. She will be remembered by many as the “Cake Lady” and for her exquisitely tended gardens. She was devoted to her family, loved and respected by them, as well as a large network of close friends.
Visitations will be held on Sunday, March 8, from 2 to 4 pm and from 7 to 9 pm, at Rodrigue Montpetit & Fils Funeral Home. 170 Châteauguay Street, Huntingdon, Quebec, 450 264-5331.

    Our sincere condolences to the Rogers family. Nova and Les were an important part of our family for many years and we have wonderful memories of the many things we enjoyed together. Our kids always loved “Auntie Nova” and “Uncle Les”.

    I first met Nova on visits home from Alberta, when my Aunt Alice Rennie and my cousins, David and Audrey Rennie, were alive. Nova's green thumb always amazed and delighted me -- especially her hosta collection! She was a lovely and gracious lady, and I know how very much her family will miss her. May she rest in peace, and may her family be comforted by the memories collected over her long and well-lived life.
