Faye Hansen

Age 83 of Wilmington, passed away peacefully at her home on Saturday morning, February 9, 2019 with loving family by her side.

Born at home in Wilmington on October 25, 1935, Faye Ann was a daughter of Melvin A. and Josephine E. (Swartz) Friddle. She was raised and educated in Wilmington and went on to marry Ellsworth K. Hansen.

Faye worked at Hansen’s Confectionery and later became one of the first employees of Precision Components in Wilmington, from where she retired from after more than 25 years. Following her retirement Faye enjoyed working at Courtyard Candles.

Faye began bowling at the age of 16, and continued to bowl her entire life. She was a member of the Joliet Area Women’s Bowling Association, and was proud to be a fan of both the Chicago White Sox and Chicago Bears. Faye loved cardinals, and enjoyed bird watching. She also took pleasure in playing cards and crafting. No hobby was greater than family, and she leaves behind a priceless collection of memories to those who were near and dear to her.

Survivors include her children: Greg (Cathy) Hansen and Cindy Friddle, both of Wilmington, Kim (Tim) Mitchell of Braidwood and Dawn (Marvin) Norris of Wilmington; seven grandchildren: Tim Hansen, Gregory Hansen, Jr. and Shanon Friddle of Wilmington, Brandon Bormet (Katie Faletti) of Goose Lake, Breanne Bormet of Braidwood, Tim, Jr. (Kaelie) Mitchell of Joliet, and Khrista (Adam) Boyd of Coal City; eight great grandchildren: Tim Welker, Jr., Dylan Welker, Mackenzie Welker, Madison Boravicka, Kylee Boyd, Payten Boyd, Kyndra Cox and Haley Cox; siblings: Melva Jo McCarville of Wilmington, Don (JoAnn) Friddle of Tennessee, Chuck (Joyce) Friddle of Florida, Kathy Friddle and Karen Friddle, both of Wilmington and Mary Hairald of Dwight; one sister-in-law, Jan Laffoon of Bristol, Indiana; numerous nieces and nephews including her special niece Joleena Harrod, and countless friends, as well as her lifelong friend, Ruth Buchanan.
