She began her new life and retu rne d to God the evening of July 9, 2006 at her home and surrounded by th e fa mily she loves so much. Her love for us will be never ending as wil l ou r love for her. She will forever be the most amazing person we wil l eve r know. Faye was born on May 26, 1921 to Alma Neal and Jesse Kathle en Pet tit Beckstrand. She grew up in Sugar House and graduated from Sout h Hig h School. In 1938 Faye married George Franklin Higginson and had th ree ch ildren, Rex, Kathleen (Kay) and Janice (Jann). They later divorce d and sh e raised her three children on her own in a time when that was u nheard of . Mom embraced Jesus and lived her Christian values both as a m ember of t he LDS faith and in her last days as a member of the Catholi c faith. Sh e found peace and comfort in both faiths. Mom worked for Dr . Ed Tugaw a t Central Valley Veterinary Hospital for 25 years and then f or the Utah D ept. of Agriculture for 12 years. Mom was a gusty lady. In1 974 she went o n a six week adventure, by herself, to Japan, China and th en Australia t o see Rex and Judy. She later made another trip to Austral ia to meet he r grandson and granddaughter. Mom loved to fish at Strawber ry, hunt at th e Chesapeake Duck Club and watch Skyler play soccer. She l oved working i n her garden and could sit outside in her swing for hours . Mom and Aunt D orothy made two trips to Branson where they became schoo l girls again an d had the time of their lives.

      Faye leaves behind her daughter Jann and son-in-law Jake Penney; eight a d oring grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren; sister Dorothy Soleberg (C ha rles); sister-in-law and best friend, Dorothy Beckstrand; daughter-in- la w Judy Higgin son; son-in-law Tim Nielson; nieces; nephews, and her de a r friend of 52 years, Mary Shepherd and countless people that will mis s h er dearly. Those awaiting mom in heaven are son Rex; daughter Kay; he r pa rents; brother Harold and sister Erma.

      Our heartfelt thanks go out to 1st Choice Hospice. The team not only to o k care of mom but they also took care of her family as well. Mom cam e t o love each member of her team.
