Upon graduation from Roosevelt High School, Seattle she attended the University of Washington and then enlisted in the United States Navy where she met her husband, LtCol Vern Nordman USAF, Ret. In their 50 years of married life, over 35 in the Air Force, she made a loving home for her family in South Carolina, Iowa, Colorado, Texas, Washington, Germany, Belgium and England, retiring with her husband to the Lakes at Gig Harbor in 2000.
Faye was an accomplished artist, cook, and seamstress and excelled in many crafts. She loved gardening and every evening she could usually be found sitting on the patio watching the birds and the lake with a bag full of doggie treats.
Faye leaves a loving family. Her husband Vern of The Lakes, son John, granddaughter Amanda and great-granddaughter Katie of Burien, WA; son David, daughter in law Sally, grandchildren Jacob, Sarah and Jared of San Antonio TX; son Michael, daughter in law Julie, grandchildren Tyler, Joseph and Hannah, of Flower Mound TX; Daughter Susan Starkey, son in law Dayton, of Lynnwood, WA; daughter Sandra Stanioch, son in law Alex, and grandson Jeremy, of University Place, WA.
All of us who knew her are left with wonderful memories of a real lady with a smile that never faded. We will miss you.
A memorial service to celebrate an extraordinary life will be held at The Lakes Club House, 4200 146th St., Gig Harbor, WA on Saturday, 2 September at 1:00 PM.
