Faye K. Stitt, 83, of Mifflin, passed away at 9:42 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 9, 2019, at the Locust Grove Retirement Village, Mifflin.

Born Aug. 2, 1935, in Port Royal, Juniata County, she was a daughter of the late W. Banks and Jessie (Saffell) Kennedy. On Sept. 22, 1956, she married her late husband, Glenn E. Stitt, with whom she was blessed to share nearly 56 years of marriage with before he preceded her in death on May 25, 2012.

She is survived by: her daughter, Glenda S. Crimmel and her husband, Steven, of Harrisburg; seven sisters, Shirley Groce, of Newark, Del., Jeanne Buczek, of Harrisburg, Ruth Wynn, of Dauphin, Jessie Nace, of Mifflintown, Patricia Walters, of Port Royal, Paula Rosenstengel, of Ephrata, and Betty Robinson, of Port Royal; two grandsons, Kyle D. Crimmel and Kevin D. Crimmel and his wife, Brianna, all of Harrisburg; and two precious great-granddaughters, Charlotte Crimmel and Kennedy Crimmel.

Three brothers, James Kennedy, William Kennedy and Daniel Kennedy preceded her in death.

Mrs. Stitt was a 1954 graduate of Juniata Joint High School, Mifflintown, and a 70 plus year member of the Lower Tuscarora Presbyterian Church, Academia, where she served as a deacon of the card ministries and she had taught Sunday school. She also volunteered as a Gray Lady and she had been a leader of a Brownie Troop.

In earlier life, she was employed as a telephone operator for the United Telephone Co. and for most of her married life, she was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and sister who loved being a home maker. Following this, she went to work for her sister at the Wig Palace and the Craft Corner.

Faye?s life was her family, always able to babysit her grandsons and she took care of her mother who lived with her for 15 years. She had a gift for cooking and canning and she relished nothing more than to have her family get together for special occasions.

Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. on Thursday, Feb. 14, 2019, from the Lower Tuscarora Presbyterian Church, Academia, with Rev. John C. Park officiating. Interment will follow in the Academia Cemetery.

A viewing will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 13, 2019, from the Brown Funeral Homes Inc., 100 Bridge St., Mifflintown, and there will be no viewing or visitation at the church on Thursday.

For those who wish, memorial contributions in Mrs. Stitt?s memory may be made to the Lower Tuscarora Presbyterian Church, 54 Church Road, Mifflin, PA 17058.
