Faith was a voracious reader.  She enjoyed needlecraft and puzzles.  From her childhood days on the family farm in Germantown, she carried her love for riding and horses into her adult life.  A long-time member of the Unity Church, she especially enjoyed the fellowship of the Course in Miracles Group.  Angels and angel imagery abounded in her home.  Faith was beloved by those close to her for her sincerity, joy of life and intuitive mind.  She was a gifted, beautiful spirit who will be deeply missed by her family and friends.
