In Loving Memory: Honoring the Life of a Strong, Loving Wife and Mother

It is with sad hearts that we announce the passing of Sue Faville, a remarkable woman who touched the lives of many with her strength, warmth, and unwavering love. She walked into the arms of Jesus on August 28, 2023, leaving behind a legacy that will forever bloom in the hearts of her family and friends.

Born on May 9, 1951, Sue embraced life's challenges with determination and grace. Her strength was an inspiration to all who knew her, as she navigated life's twists and turns with an unyielding spirit. A devoted wife of 46 years, she and her beloved Tim shared a bond that served as a shining example of enduring love and commitment. Their marriage was grounded Christ, they trusted in God’s faithfulness to weather life's storms together. Sue was devoted to her family, raising seven children with boundless love. Her legacy extended to her 20 grandchildren, who were blessed to experience her warmth and wisdom. She shared her faith in Christ with them, teaching them the importance of a relationship with Jesus and the power of prayer.

Among Sue's many passions, her devotion to prayer, love for her family, and love for gardening stood out. Her garden was a sanctuary where she found solace and joy, working diligently with her hands in the earth and watching birds. There she spent countless hours in prayer. 

Sue loved to draw and always wanted to share her art as a way to encourage others and share the love of Jesus. She always wanted to uplift others through her kind words and selfless acts. Her home was a haven of laughter, love, and open arms, where friends and family were always welcomed with open hearts and warm smiles. Her legacy lives on in the stories, memories, and values she imparted to her loved ones.

A memorial service to celebrate Sue’s life and her abiding faith in Jesus Christ will be held on September 9, 2023 at Johnson Funeral Home in Salem, Oregon. As we say our farewells, let us remember her as a woman of unshakable faith, and rejoice with her that she is finally home!

  4. Pamela Cournoyer says:

    Sue became a devoted sister (in-law) to me when I met her in the 1970's. She taught me by her example in raising children as we raised our children side-by-side. I learned from her example of love and devotion to her wonderful husband, Tim.

    I heard her faith ring through in all of her words and actions. Her devotion to God and her family was never in question. She was a strong and wilful person who tirelessly worked to realign her own will with her tremendous faith. What a powerful role model to me.

    She was never without funny stories of her family while raising them; how cute they were, and how proud of them she was. Sue was always proud of you, kids, and was faithful to pray for each of you.

    She was a watchful guardian, and along with her dad, Todd, she always called me out on my "stuff" motivated by love.

    I will forever be grateful for you, my sister, Sue! I love you and look forward to reuniting someday in a lovely garden of birds and angels, reminiscing about the blessings of our lives.

  5. Sherri Sperling says:

    In such a few, very short years, Sue became a dear friend. And through her, some of her family have become precious to us. What a joy to be a part of that circle of love. Our hearts are and prayers are with you.
