Faith Grathen, 84, went to walk with the Lord on June 15, 2021 at the age of 84.
A Mass of the Resurrection: 12:00 Noon, Tuesday, June 29, 2021, at Saint Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church, 5953 Bowman Roberts Road. Fort Worth, Texas, 76179.
Faith was born in Burlington Vermont on September 6, 1936 to Luther and Mattie Roque.
Faith was preceded in death by her husband, Dale Lindeau, whom she was married to for 33 years; and by her husband, Marvin Grathen, whom she was married to until his death; by her parents and many beloved family members.
Faith loved to travel and had the rare opportunity to travel to Switzerland and Spain as well as most of the US states. She was a devout Catholic and dedicated her time to her church and the food pantry ministry. She felt it was her calling to help others in need. She loved to sing and was a choir member of her church for many, many years.
Faith had a great sense of humor and loved joking around with her family and friends. She loved sports and rarely missed a Nascar race. She was strong and independent, loyal and loving. Her grandchildren always looked forward to her ‘Granny Cookin’ and she has passed on her much-loved bread recipe to continue the tradition. She was “Gigi” to her Great-Grandchildren.
Survivors: Faith is survived by two sisters, Mattie Benoit and Vivian Leppi. Faith is also survived by her children, Michael Lindeau and his wife, Diane, Anne Brown and her husband, Robert, and Eric Lindeau and wife, Beth; her grandchildren, Sarah Breedlove, Steven Brown, Erica Hanner, Erin Baum and Emily Nofsinger; and seven great-grandchildren, Jacob, Aiden, Emerlyn, Amelia, Olivia, Dahlia and Eleanor.
