A former resident of Verplanck, NY Faye and her husband William (Red) McKeon retired to their dream farmhouse in Sherburne, NY where they spent many years until they joined their daughter in Cape Coral, FL. Faye spent her final years as a resident of the Gulf Coast Extended Care facility where she enjoyed many of the community activities such as hymn singing with her daughter Cindy ever at her side. Faye also loved to write poems as well as cook for countless family gatherings. She was an avid lover of animals and had an undying Christian faith which she spread to her family and friends when called upon.
A memorial service with family will be held at a later date.
I think about you often. I remember the years of laughs and nightly ice cream. You were not only a good friend but a mother image to me. You are a special person. Never a bad word to say or judgemental. A true christian and now an angel. You and your family have touched my heart. I love you and will miss you."
"David and I enjoyed the visits we had with Faye whenever we were in Cape Coral. She loved to sit and chat, especially to hear about our travels, our children, and our grandchildren. Sometimes we would read to her the wonderful letters from her family out West. She loved explaining those to us. She had a great sense of family. There will be a gap in our lives next time we are in Cape Coral."
"Faye was my mom's best friend and a second mother to me growing up - even though we lived in different states. We would join her family at the beach in Jersey every summer. She always made sure us kids had a great time, always had enough to eat, took care of our cuts & scrapes and watched out for all of us. She had a huge love for dogs that I think she passed on to me! I always felt happy and loved around Faye. I am thankful she was a part of my family's life and will always fondly remember her."
"Mom-we grew up going to the beach every year. I love it because we vacationed there as a family and because you loved it so. But much more importantly we grew up going to church and you and Dad raised us all up in the way of the Lord. That gave me a solid foundation for life, a love of the Lord, and a Savior forever. There could be no better gift to leave us with.
We will always remember the great things you did for us-the bread you used to bake, the cow bells you used to ring as our fan at our athletic endeavors, the costumes you made for us on Halloween that brought us prizes, the holiday gatherings we had always with extended family, and the Christmases that were beyond the imagination of any child but always with Christ at the center. Thank you for all of that and more.
You were my heart. I will always love you and will miss you every day for the rest of my life. I will be listening for your harmony....and will join you once again some day in singing."
