June 2, 1949 – December 13, 2022
In loving memory ~
Predeceased by her parents, Helen and Pete; brothers Wayne and Lance; sister-in-law Susan Pavoll, all of Revelstoke, B.C. She is survived by her loving husband John, daughters Nicole and Chelsea and brother Lorne (Lynn) of Burnaby, BC as well as nephews Ben, Tyler, Shaun and niece Sheila.
Faye was raised in Revelstoke and always thought of it as the loveliest place in BC. She settled in Kamloops in 1971, and in 1976 married her husband John. Together, they started a family with Nicole’s arrival in 1981 and Chelsea’s in 1983. Faye juggled her job as a bookkeeper at Artistic Signs, the Horsebarn and Rivers Workwear along with the challenges of being a wife and mother.
Faye was also a member of Beta Sigma Phi where she made many lasting friendships with her sisters in the Sorority. Faye’s escape from her very full daily schedule was her enjoyment of gardening which was a true passion. Travel was a bonus where she enjoyed parts of Europe and many, many tourist destinations.
In January 2017, Faye was diagnosed with cancer which ended her work career; but, she still maintained an active social life. On her good days, she still went lunching with friends, camping with her RV group, playing crib, and socializing with her Probus club members; all the while still enjoying her gardens.
Our heartfelt thank you to the nurses, doctors, and staff at the RIH Cancer Clinic and the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice Home for the exceptional care she received throughout this long and arduous journey and the many good family friends whose support was truly treasured.
Faye’s Celebration of Life will be held at the Kamloops Funeral Home, 285 Fortune Dr., Kamloops, B.C. January 7, 2023, at 1:00 pm with reception to follow.
