They lived in Edmonton, Peace River and Regina, before moving to Swift Current in 1977, where they built a business together. Faith was a part owner and the bookkeeper at Armstrong Implements from 1977 to 1993.
Faith was a much-loved wife, mother, and grandmother. She was a loyal friend, and had many lifelong friendships. She was always thoughtful and kind to others, and was a wonderful listener and sounding board. She also had a lovely, warm sense of humor, and laughed often. She loved to knit, and made blankets for every one of her grandchildren and great grandchildren. Faith also loved to travel, and she and Ed explored the world together, visiting New Zealand, many countries in Europe and the Caribbean. Her favorite destination however was Aruba, where she and Ed visited for 35 years. She loved the ocean, warm sun, beautiful beaches and her many friends there. Faith was active in the community, volunteering with the Kinettes and UCW at First United Church for many years. She was also an avid reader, and enjoyed puzzles, and golfing, bowling, and curling with her friends and family.
