Faith was a passionate schoolteacher and loved spending one on one time with all her students.  She spent many years teaching in a few different Burlington City Schools.  She would drive the school van from one school to another.  She was a great Bridge card game player and later took on playing Mahjong, all the while enjoying many laughs with friends.  David and Faith spent many years traveling either on road trips in the US, travels to Europe and many river boat cruises.   Faith cherished her role as Nana spending time with grandchildren whether it was attending and cheering them on at sports events, plays at their schools, playing card games together or just chatting with them on Facetime.    

Faith made you feel welcome from the moment you walked into a room.  She had an amazing smile and an infectious laugh that you wouldn’t forget.  She was a compassionate, fierce, woman of great faith and she will be missed more than words can say.
