Faith was preceded in death by her maternal grandparents, John and Kate Mack, her paternal grandmother, Marge Zlomie, and her father-in-law Gerald Koehler.

Faith embraced the life of a farmer’s wife, including running the combine. Faith enjoyed many pastimes including riding her golf cart, often with her dogs by her side, playing on her iPad, fine embroidery, gardening vegetables and flowers; she loved all animals and a good book. Above all, Faith took most joy in spending time with her family, especially her grandsons. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend to many, and she will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her.

Funeral services for Faith took place on Saturday, March 11, at Forsythe Gould Funeral Home, Manhattan. Per Faith’s wishes, cremation will follow. In lieu of flowers, donations in Faith’s name to St. Jude’s Children Research Hospital by visiting would be most appreciated.
