Fara was a devoted wife, sister, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She cared for her family and others first, before her own needs.

As a breast cancer survivor, she still managed to spend long hours in the kitchen, cooking and filling the table with her delicious platters of Italian dishes and homemade desserts. This was an expression of her love which we will dearly miss.

She enjoyed making crafts with flowers and birds to display or give as gifts. Still driving at the age of 85. She cherished her visits with her brother and sisters over a good cup of coffee and fresh donuts.
