      Throughout her life Fay's sweet and loving disposition won the trust and hearts of many, making her a popular coffee hostess at the Sheetz on Memory Lane in York where she worked to the age of 80, after her retirement from Weis Markets bakery department.
      She attended high school in Bellwood. She met and married Marcellus Litten while working in the PX on an army base and and had three children, Michael, Gloria and Nancy. They had 34 wonderful years of marriage until his death in 1980.

      The family is deeply grateful for the outpouring of love and support in many heartfelt forms. We'd also like to send a special thank you to the White Rose hospice team for all their help and support and to Catrice White, an amazing caregiver for her excellent work and loving care, you were my mom's angel and she loved you. Thank you to my Aunt Peg for her daily phone calls, she looked forward to each of them and to my Aunt Helen, she enjoyed the bi-weekly calls, sometimes lasting for hours. Thank you to my Uncles for making the drive to see her in her final days, it meant so much to her. I'd also like to thank George Knaub, her special friend. the calls and visits, the laughter you brought to her meant so much, she loved you like a son.
      Fay was cremated and there are no services, the family will have a private celebration of life at a later date. Though her smile is gone forever and her hand I cannot touch, I still have so many memories of the mom I loved so much. Her memory is my keepsake Which with I'll never part God has her in his keeping I have her in my heart Sadly missed but never forgotten.
