Faye M. Henke
Faye M. Henke, age 92, of Fond du
Lac, passed away peacefully on Saturday, December 21, 2019, at the Fond du Lac
Lutheran Home. While she enjoyed life here with us, she was tired and ready to
reunite with those she missed who had gone on before her. She will be missed
but we celebrate God’s glory and her new home. She was born on April 12, 1927,
in Eldorado, WI, the daughter of Elvin and Ruth (Henning) Levenhagen. On June
27, 1953 she married Alfred Henke and they raised their family in North Fond du
Lac. Faye worked at Wells Manufacturing for twenty-eight years until retiring on
April 28, 1989. She was a member of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Nekimi. She
enjoyed bowling, day trips, crocheting, playing cards, and mowing her lawn.
Later in life Faye enjoyed reading and doing jigsaw puzzles and especially
enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Survivors include her children,
Richard (Carole) Henke of North Fond du Lac, Linda (Ted) Washnieski of Eldorado;
her grandchildren, Corey (Scott) Berghammer of Beaver Dam, Hannah (Rob ) Henke of North Fond du Lac, Dani (Mark)
Wuest of Oshkosh, Jessi (Andy) Harris of Oshkosh; her great-grandchildren, Riley,
Turner, and Nora Jo; her siblings, Bill Levenhagen, Bob (Jan) Levenhagen, Elvin
(Joyce) Levenhagen Jr, Leona Miles, Dorothy (Bob) Kurth, and Winnie (Darrell)
McCullough; and other relatives and friends. She was preceded in death by her
parents; her husband; one infant son, one sister; one brother; and numerous brothers-in-law
Visitation will take place on Friday,
December 27, 2019, from 10:30-11:30 AM at St. John’s Lutheran Church, 491 Old
Oregon Rd, Oshkosh (Nekimi), WI, 54902. Funeral service will follow the visitation
at the church at 11:30 AM. Burial will follow at St. John’s Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers we feel Faye
would appreciate donations be made to St. John’s Lutheran Church.
