Mrs. Stitt was a 1954 graduate of Juniata Joint High School, Mifflintown, and a 70 plus year member of the Lower Tuscarora Presbyterian Church, Academia, where she served as a deacon of the card ministries and she had taught Sunday school.

In earlier life, she was employed as a telephone operator for the United Telephone Co. and for most of her married life, she was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and sister who loved being a home maker. Following this, she went to work for her sister at the Wig Palace and the Craft Corner.
Faye’s life was her family, always able to babysit her grandsons and she took care of her mother who lived with her for 15 years. She had a gift for cooking and canning and she relished nothing more than to have her family get together for special occasions.
