I always remember her fun personality. She brought me many smiles and laughs. She will be missed.

~Sonia Ketzbeau    

Growing up next door to the Ketzbeau family was great. As children our ages were very close. Faye was someone who would stand out in my mind. Always such a joy to be around, her smile and laugh would draw you in. She seemed to always be working but had time for a chat, busy taking care of her family and everyone she knew. To me Faye was one of the kindest people I've ever known. God truly gained a special angel. Forever in my heart Faye! Rhonda


So sorry for you loss! My heart goes out to Melvin and all of the Ketzbeau families. May love, laughter, and memories bring all of you peace.
