I remember Faye and her husband coming into the Animal Medical Hospital years ago when I worked at the front desk, with their beloved dachshund at the time, Penny, I believe. (Funny how those things come back to you) They were always very kind and we had a nice rapport. Now I have a dachshund, and understand why they loved them so. My condolences to her family and friends that will miss her.

Aunt Faye was loved and treasured by all of the nieces, nephews, and grand nieces and nephews of the Kelleher family. Her laugh was contagious and frequent when we were all together. She was easy to kid and you would often hear her telling one of the boys to stop while laughing. Aunt Faye and Uncle Bob were devoted to each other and there was always more laughing and fun when they were around. They loved animals, particularly their dachshunds, Laddie, and Morris. Aunt Faye was all of our favorite Aunt and as long as she lives on in our hearts and memories, a part of her will never leave us.

To Faye's Famly,
My father, Bob Dinges, worked with Faye at Warner Company. For many years she helped him get through a rough day with a joke or just by listening. And until a little over a year ago, my Uncle Ed McNichol talked about keeping in touch with her once or twice a month by telephone. She and her husband Bob had a lot of friends in Bellefonte. This is a sad time for you. This will be a happy reunion for all of her loved ones who have gone before. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
