My mother was Shirley Wathor Hofacre. She graduated from Diller and mentioned a Fay often. I have to assume it was your mother as the town was so small. May she Rest In Peace. My condolences.

The family of Eleanor Michels is thinking of Jan, Judy and David at this difficult time. We are sure
that "Mike" , Glen, Hank and Cal are playing card games up in heaven and have a hand dealt for Faye. How excited Connie was to be Faye's Flower Girl and will remember her always as a big sister! Grandma Novotny
is looking forward to Faye's help with the heavenly iris garden. We will miss her!
