After a miracle recovery from pneumonia in 1997, life slowed down a little. She and Richard traveled in their motorhome for several years and settled back here in Utah in 2010, while still traveling during the winter months until 2020.

 It was important to Fae for her grandchildren and her great grandchildren to know how much they meant to her. There was so much she wanted to do with them although was limited by her chronic health problems over the years. She was so proud of who they were and who they were becoming. Though they might not have realized her admiration she was their biggest cheerleader. Fae will always be remembered for her sense of humor, her sense of style #Expensive, and her love for her family.
