Faye was a caring, loving mother and grandmother. She grew up in Chicago, raised family in Moline and recently moved to Roseville. Her education included a master's degree in library science.
Faye brought music and arts into our family. Faye played bass violin at polkas and was an inaugural member of the Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestras. She sang in the Handel Oratorio Society's Messiah, Rock Island, and North Suburban Chorus, Roseville. She was a librarian (fine arts, science and technology) at the Rock Island Library and a volunteer at the Putnam Museum, Davenport. Faye and Bill were frequent travelers to Mexico and Europe. They wintered in Tempe, Ariz., for 30 years.
