GOSHEN — Faye Nyhle Hunter Ude was ushered into the presence of her Lord Saturday in Goshen.
Her journey on earth began May 12, 1924, in Knoxville, Tenn., when God blessed David and Clara Nyhle Hunter with their sixth child.
God’s providence took the family to Miami, Fla., where Faye was born again at the First Christian Church and where she met and later married Earl Krader Ude Sept. 2, 1945.
Faye was a graduate of the University of Miami with a degree in trumpet, music education and English. She taught high school band, directed church choirs, youth choirs, worked at the University of Miami in campus ministry, and was a lifelong member of Sigma Alpha Iota Women’s Honorary Music Sorority.
She faithfully served God through His church in many volunteer capacities. In 1955, she helped start the University Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in South Miami, Fla.
She is survived by her children, Pam (Steve) Allen and Gini (David) Bennett; and her grandchildren, Bethany (Brandon) Hartman, Danielle (Jared) Goodman, Christopher (Stacy) Bennett, Ross (Olivia) Allen, Rebecca (Steven) Kauffman and Hunter Allen; and 11 great-grandchildren, Clara, Jackson, Elliott, Riley, Aubrey, Kayla, Brooklyn, Leila, Liam, Mali and Kaeson.
Ready to meet her in heaven are her parents, siblings and husband of 58 years.
Friends and family are invited for coffee and fellowship at 9:45 a.m. Saturday, followed by a celebration of a life well lived at 10:30 a.m. at Sugar Grove Church in Goshen.
To honor her life, donations may be made to the First Christian Church, 29 Seventh St. SW, Winter Haven, FL 33880.
Miller-Stewart Funeral Home, Middlebury is assisting the family with arrangements. Online condolences may be shared at millerstewartfuneralhome.com.
