Faye Ward

December 22, 1949 - June 21, 2017

WARD, Faye (nee Bryans) John 11:25 "He who believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live". Faye went to live with the Lord instantly on Wednesday afternoon as the result of a motorcycle accident. Born December 22, 1949 in Stirling, Scotland, Faye came to Canada at age 7 with her mother Janet to join her father Tom, a miner in Timmins, Ontario. She earned a B.A. at Sir Wilfrid Laurier and M. Ed. at McMaster and taught high school in North Bay and Burlington. Faye was Mark's loving wife of 43 years; proud mom of Linda and Diana (Will) and adored nanny of Maya, Sierra and Thomas. She was also a leader, organizer, Jesus-follower, singer, walker, caregiver, gardener, mentor, hugger and surrogate sister or auntie to many. Visitation will be on Sunday, June 25th from 2 p.m. - 5 p.m. at Harmony Baptist Church, and a celebration of her rich, faith-driven life will be held on Monday, June 26th at 2 p.m. both at HARMONY BAPTIST CHURCH (1763 Upper James Street, Glanbrook). A private, Christian graveside service will be held at Mount Hamilton Cemetery. Donations in Faye's name to the Church will contribute to funding a memorial outdoor classroom.

We have no words to express how deeply we are shocked to hear about Fayes accident and sudden death. Our thoughts are with the family in these days of mourning. We had a Skype-communication in February as our last rememberance of a wonderful friend. She was such a cheerful and friendly woman. We always remember her friendly laughing and in good mood.
It´s so terrible.

On behalf of the entire Phillips family please accept our sincere condolences. Faye (or Mrs. Ward to me) was an amazing English Teacher at Nelson High School. Her fantastic enthusiasm brought Lear to life for my classmates and I. I can still see her moving through the classroom speaking as either Goneril, Regan, or fair Cordelia (Faye was so engaging!).
Thinking of you and sending our thoughts and best wishes.

We are so very sorry for your loss. Faye was a ray of sunshine in our family. We will miss her joy of life and her genuine interest in and concern for those around her. She really demonstrated the love of Christ to others.
We can't begin to know all you are going through at this difficult time. But we know there is One who does understand, and our prayer is that you will all know God's love, peace and comfort at this difficult time. And we will continue to pray for all of you. With all our love.

We are saddened at the news of the loss of Faye. We had the privilege of meeting her on several occasions while she visited Buchans. Her energy and enthusiasm for life was so apparent with each encounter. Find comfort in knowing that she is united with God. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

To my cousin Mark and Dorothy, Linda, Diana and families: David and I were shocked and saddened by the news of Faye's accident. Our love and prayers are with you at this difficult time. Faye brought a breath of fresh life into the Gilbert family when she joined it all these years ago. Her constant smile, positive attitude, funny stories and most of all, her fierce love for her family and her Lord were evident. We will miss her so much, but feel privileged to have been part of her life. Until we meet again, when we will all rejoice around His throne...we love you all.
