Faye Nelson

Age 84 of Morris, passed away Friday morning, July 28, 2017 at Regency Care in Morris.

Born January 23, 1933 in Morris, Illinois, Margaret Faye was a daughter of Frank and Ann (nee Ryan) Busaytis. She was raised and educated in Mazon, and on August 2, 1952 Faye married Sherwood A. Nelson in St. Patrick Catholic Church in Seneca. She was proud to be a farmer's wife, and dedicated mother. Faye was a member of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Morris, belonged to the International Arabian Horse Association (IAHA), and in years past bowled on a league. She was active in the Senior Exercise Classes through Morris Hospital, and dearly loved to cook and bake from scratch. Faye took pleasure in traveling with her husband Sherwood and daughter Lisa to show their Arabian Horses, and will be remembered for her overall love of animals. Faye’s home was a sanctuary, in which she fed and cared for the deer, and enjoyed her dogs. Faye cherished spending time with her grandchildren, and participating in their activities.

Survivors include her four children: Sherry (John) Lundgren of Channahon, Michael Nelson of Charlotte, North Carolina, Pam (Roger) Goodman of Morris and Lisa (Brian) Jones of Channahon; five grandchildren: Madison and Jarod Nelson, Kelcie and Andrew Goodman, and Taylor Jones; three great grandchildren: McKenzie, Trey and Tristan; one sister, Nancy (Bob) Craig, and two sisters-in-law: Louise Nelson of Morris and Bertie Nelson of Champaign, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Faye was preceded in death by her parents; husband Sherwood on July 7, 2010; granddaughter Tasha Nelson on June 19, 2016; two brothers-in-law: Nolan Nelson and Dale Nelson and one sister-in-law Georgene Anderson.
