Enjoying her life fully, to Faye, meant enjoying all of the little moments and making memories with loved ones. She enjoyed time with family and friends, celebrating holidays and birthdays together, baking and decorating fancy birthday cakes, cooking, and gardening. She was known for her caring heart, warm personality, her generosity, always present smile, and her delicious lasagna and deviled eggs.
