Obituary of Ferdinand and Mary Staub
April 23, 1928 - February 7, 2022
It is with broken hearts that we announce the peaceful passing of Ferdinand (Fred) Staub, a loving husband, father, Opa and Great Opa, on February 7, 2022, at the age of 93, at Metropolitan Hospital. Beloved husband to Mary, with whom he celebrated 68 years of blessed marriage. Loving and devoted dad to Fred Staub and partner Sue Rueger and Christine and husband Kevin Mogyorody. Cherished Opa to Rachel Staub, Jonny Staub, Michael and Stacey Mogyorody and Erika Staub. Adored by his great grandchildren Kaden and Avery Mogyorody and Tyler Yue Staub. Fred was born in Nemetker Hungary. Predeceased by parents Anton (1968) and Franciska (1997) and brothers Anton, Alois and sister Mathilde. In 1951 he left Schwabach, Germany leaving behind his beloved family to embark on a new adventure to Canada, sponsored by his dear Stollar Aunt and Uncle. He worked various jobs and met his wife Mary, whom he married in 1953. He was a dedicated employee and retired from General Motors Transmission Windsor, in 1990, after 35 years of service. Fred enjoyed 20 winters in Boynton Beach, Florida and many summers up north in Parry Sound. His passion for gardening was enjoyed by all the family. He loved the enjoyment and tranquility of tending to his flower and vegetable garden. He enjoyed telling stories over a glass of homemade wine and his positive outlook, his smile and laughter were contagious. He attended St. Michael's German Catholic Church and was a member of the Catholic Men's League for over 50 years. Fred was at heart a family man who liked nothing better than family dinners and get togethers. He taught us by example the value of hard work and honesty. He was an amazing role model. He will be greatly missed but never forgotten. The family wishes to thank Dr. Zayouna, all the Shoreview staff, Dr. Liang and the nursing team and St. Elizabeth nurses for their exceptional care and support. For those who wish, and in memory of Ferdinand, memorial donations can be made to the Alzheimer’s Society of Canada.To donate to the Alzheimer's Society, click here.

Loving and devoted mom to Fred Staub and partner Sue Rueger, Christine and husband Kevin Mogyorody. Cherished Oma to Rachel Staub, Jonny Staub, Michael and Stacey Mogyorody and Erika Staub.

Mary was born in Molidorf (Molin) a small village in Banat, Yugoslavia. She was a WW Il concentration camp survivor and endured many war-time hardships.

There was always a strudel or torte, or her famous apfel pie readily available for visitors to enjoy with some kaffee. Mary was an exceptional woman, no matter how sick she was, she stayed strong and was always determined. There was no quit in her, only the need to survive and through her we know what resilience and perseverance truly look like. Mary was a dedicated wife, mom, Oma and Great Oma first and foremost.
