Faye H. Seifert

Faye H. Seifert 72, of Ashland, Neb., formerly of Fairbury, died July 16, 2014 at St. Elizabeths Hospital in Lincoln, Neb. She was born May 30, 1942 to Clifford Marion and Mabel Faye (Snyder) Williams in Fairbury.

e. Most people remember her riding her bike around town to get around. She would make friends with anyone anywhere if she could. She always looked at everyone with a kind heart.

Faye loved her mother and both of her brothers very much. Once the sickness of dementia started taking her mind, her coping mechanism was to remember the happy times when she was younger, like when she and Mable used to drive a horse and buggy into town. Many times she would talk about the time that the horses, even in a blizzard, would be able to find their way home through the snow, even though they could not see. She never had any doubt in her faith in God. She still has her bible that she received when she was 10 years old, and read it often.
