Faith E. (Hathaway) Larsen passed away Nov. 1st, 2017. She is predeceased by her parents, John and Vivia (Van Dusen) Hathaway of Lewis, N.Y., and beloved daughter Crystal Robin Larsen. She is survived by her husband, Lawrence Michael Larsen; children, Kevin, Michelle, and Janelle; sisters, Hope Bradley, Teresa Hathaway, Christina Bryant, Mary Watts; and aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins. For many years the family's sole supporter, she worked as a Production Machine Operator and Home Health Care Aide. Faith was creative, from playing clarinet and saxophone, singing in choirs, to baking, and crafting with church and neighborhood youth. During the past year, confined mostly to home she spent hours drawing. Generous with her time, energy, and limited finances, Faith enjoyed helping her community, teaching youth programs, driving, helping with communion, dinners and feeding neighborhood youth. A lover of nature, she knew names of every tree and song bird and would regale friends and family with stories of April the Giraffe from Animal Adventure Park.
A Memorial Service was held in Batavia, N.Y., on Nov. 3rd, 2017. There will be a Celebration of Life at the Lewis, N.Y., cemetery in August 2018.
