She retired from PNC bank (formerly Central Security Bank) as a purchasing clerk after 30 years of service.

She was well-known and respected in her community, loved by many and often being called, “Nana”. Her passion was daily reading her bible and daily devotions. Her greatest joy was the time she spent with her family, especially her grandchildren and great grandchildren; her church family; cooking; baking; and completing her word search puzzles.

Fayre leaves to cherish her memory her daughter Lori (James) Hill of Elyria, grandchildren, Briana and Darian, great grandchildren, Jeffery (Jay) and London and a host of loving relatives and friends.
