Age 90, of Arden Hills
Passed away Thursday, September 15, 2022.
Survived by son Todd, daughters Randee (Bob) Allen, Holly, Polly, Jenny (David) Skidmore-Davis, six grandchildren and three great grandchildren.
Preceded in death by her beloved husband of 67 years, Dennis, and a loving grandson, Matthew Allen.
Faye Ida Haitz was born in Onawa, Iowa, on November 7, 1931, to Louis and Helen Haitz. She moved with her family at age 14 to Sioux City, graduating from East High School in 1949. She received her elementary teaching certificate from Iowa State Teachers College (now University of Northern Iowa), where she met her sweetheart, Dennis. They married in Sioux City in 1954, then moved to Park Ridge, Illinois, where Dennis completed his army commitment and Faye taught school. Their first child was born in 1956. Dennis joined his parents in their trucking business, after moving to Downers Grove, Illinois, where their first daughter was born. In 1960, the family moved to Rockwell City, Iowa, home of the newly-relocated Hunt Truck Lines general office. There a second daughter was born. Two adopted daughters from Korea were later added to the family. In 1985, another move took the business and family to Roseville, Minnesota, their home for 37 years. Faye’s life was a joyous one, with many interests and activities. People were always her first priority. She was dedicated to her church and taught a Bible study class for 36 years — a tremendous gift to her. Faye delighted in bringing people together in her home. She was an avid collector of antiques, especially dolls, and adored dogs. She also enjoyed travel and was always ready for the next trip. Faye cherished the deep and constant love of her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren and the support of each one.
Per her wish, there will be no service. A private family ceremony will be held later in the Contemplative Garden at Centennial United Methodist Church in Roseville for her and husband Dennis, who passed away in December of 2021.
Memorials are suggested to Centennial United Methodist Church in Roseville or Animal Humane Society in Golden Valley.
