Corinne Faschan

Corinne Faschan (nee Uhl) of Ledgewood, NJ, passed away peacefully at Karen Ann Quinlan Hospice in Fredon, New Jersey on May 9th, at the age of 97. Corinne was the beloved wife of Howard “Hoppy” Faschan and the loving mother of Adam (wife Peggy), John, Richard (wife Michele), Susan Young, and William (wife Maryanne) Faschan. She was the cherished grandmother of nine grandchildren and great-grandmother of thirteen great-grandchildren. Corinne is survived by her sister, Winifred Dressler (Uhl), and preceded in death by her husband, Howard “Hoppy” Faschan, and sisters Audrey and Muriel.

Corinne Margaret (Uhl) Faschan was born on January 18, 1927, at home on a small farm in Canadensis, Pennsylvania, to Christian Uhl and Elizabeth Johns Uhl. She was the third of four girls and had a happy childhood on their farm. The values of that modest farm life were instilled in her children. From those humble beginnings, her first job was waitressing at Buck Hill Falls resort in the Poconos. A chance encounter with a patron who recognized her potential led to a full scholarship for nursing school at Brooklyn Hospital. She was eternally grateful to this couple. After becoming a registered nurse, she dedicated four years to Newton Memorial Hospital before marrying Howard Faschan on January 17, 1954. She devoted twelve years to homemaking while raising her five children and later returned to nursing, working at Merry Heart Nursing Home for four years followed by eighteen years in the maternity unit at Dover General Hospital.

Corinne’s nursing career was enriched by her eighteen years of caring for newborns, which she often referred to as the happiest part of the hospital. Her compassionate nature extended beyond retirement through volunteer work with Hospice and outreach programs at St. Therese Church in Succasunna. She celebrated her love for nursing with three retirement parties: from full-time nursing, part-time nursing, and volunteering. In her leisure time, she enjoyed square dancing, line dancing, traveling, and reading. She will be fondly remembered for her family adventures traveling cross-country in various campers, saving the most graphic tales of nursing for family dinner time, her gentle but firm demeanor, especially when waving a spatula at mischievous boys, giving out IOU sandwiches when she ran out of fixings for her hungry brood or playfully scolding Hoppy for his humor and hijinks, which she secretly adored.

Corinne imparted to her children the values of gentleness, kindness, and serenity, even in the face of adversity, leaving an enduring legacy of love and resilience.

Friends and relatives are invited to a viewing at the Davis & Hepplewhite Funeral Home, 96 Main Street, Succasunna, NJ 973-584-7264 ( on Tuesday (May 14th) from 4 – 8 pm.

Samuel Bernard Beale

    It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of Samuel Bernard Beale, who tragically passed away on April 14, 2024. Sam, age 20, was born in Jupiter, Florida but led a life surrounded by love in Roxbury Township.

    In his short life, Sam radiated light. A sophomore at Rider University in Lawrenceville, NJ, Sam was known for his laughter, which was accompanied by his trademark smile, as well as his love of music, amassing a collection of vinyl records that he enjoyed on a daily basis. He graduated from Roxbury High School in 2022, where he spent time on the cross country, track, golf and robotics teams. A devoted member of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton R C Church in Flanders, Sam’s faith and kindness touched the lives of many through his hundreds of hours of service to those less fortunate.

    Sam was unique to this world, and everyone has a funny Sam story that can be shared. Not afraid to embrace his inner “geek” Sam was an avid enthusiast of Star Wars, and was able to debate anyone who was willing to listen on which was his favorite (Episode IV A New Hope of course!).  Second only to Star Wars was his love of all things Forrest Gump, from Halloween costumes to Bubba Gump shrimp. When not watching movies or gaming, Sam would take it upon himself to tackle collector’s version Lego projects, most recently completing The Millennium Falcon. 

    His spirit lives on through the cherished memories he created with family and friends, whether celebrating Thanksgiving at Vogel State Park, Christmas in Boston, summers on Cape Cod, or missing the first Friday of every school year at the Big E. Sam is survived by his loving parents, Jim Beale and Nicole Tesmer, his brother JJ, maternal grandparents Bernard and Mary Tesmer, and paternal grandparents Samuel and Joyce Beale. He also leaves behind his Uncle Greg Tesmer and Aunt Maureen, along with Uncle Samuel Beale, Aunt Paula Beale Hamrick, and cousins Melissa, Mackenzie, Joanna, Stephanie, Erica, Ally, Cinthia, Angel and many other beloved family members. 

    Friends and well-wishers are invited to pay their respects at the Davis & Hepplewhite Funeral Home, 96 Main Street, Succasunna, NJ (973) 584-7264,, on Friday, April 19th, from 4 to 7 pm.

The Mass will be offered to a live stream at 

    Always one to give to others, Sam chose to selflessly give of himself through organ donation, allowing others to lead full and happy lives. In lieu of flowers, donations are being graciously accepted to honor Sam through a Memorial Scholarship at Roxbury High School, 1 Bryant Drive, Succasunna, NJ 07876. Contributions will be accepted by check written to Roxbury High School with a notation “Samuel Beale Memorial Scholarship”.
