Faith graduated from Arcadia High School and then was employed by Arcadia News Leader. On the job she interviewed a young Army Sergeant returning from WWII, LeRoy E. Woychik, who became her husband of 73 years. They married on November 4, 1946, at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church, Arcadia, WI.
Her working career consisted of owning and operating with her husband, the Dolly Madison Dairy Bar, Ben Franklin Store in Arcadia, and The Grand View Lodge Resort in Chetek, WI.
In later years they enjoyed 43 winters in Florida, South Texas and Arizona at Superstition Sunrise
Resort where they met and made many great friendships. She enjoyed dancing, oil painting, exercise classes and many social events. Previous years they enjoyed their cottage on Ten Mile Lake, Chetek, WI. with many family gatherings.
In her high school years, she played the drums in the band and played the piano and organ. Throughout her life she was very artistic in numerous ways, such as pencil sketches, acrylic paintings, landscape oil paintings; many types of sewing projects in particular the popular cabbage patch dolls, Raggedy Ann and Andy, quilts, crochet afghans, baby afghans and outfits, tablecloths, bedspreads, doilies, purses, and many other types of crafts. She took great joy in giving many of her artistic creations and crafts to her children and grandchildren. Faith was a very devoted Catholic woman. She has touched so many lives with her generosity and kindness. We will dearly miss you Mother, and your homemade apple pies, your warm hugs with the best back rub ever, and your smiling goodbyes with both hands. Yes, we will always remember to wash our patties!
