Fay was the proud mother of 6 children, grandmother of 12, great-grandmother to 23 and a boundless source of energy; yet she had the innate gift to make each person feel as if they were the light of her life. Her gift of love was all encompassing not only to her family, but to friends and extended family as well.

Fay was an active member in the Altar Society of St Mary’s Catholic Church in Moline, Kansas, the Southern Belles and the Music/Literary group. She worked as secretary/ treasurer for Anthony Building and Remodeling, the family construction business prior to her move to Moline where she and her husband Paul own and operate the Flying D Ranch in Moline, Kansas.
