Faith Harriet (Becker) Robertson
Age 77 of Coal City, passed away peacefully with her husband and family surrounding her at home on Sunday night, March 14, 2021.
Born July 30, 1943 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Faith was born to Stuart and Harriet (Rohde) Becker. She was a 1961 graduate of Worthington High School, in Worthington, Ohio and went on to attend Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio.
Faith lived a life of love and faith in God. Her smile lit up a room, and she was a treasure to all who met her. No words could even begin to measure her joy in life, and her great love for her husband of 55 years, as well as precious children. She will be remembered for her love of singing, dancing, and most of all spending time with family. Faith exemplified her name and was kind to all, always. She will forever be missed by all who knew her.
