Faye moved from Saskatchewan to British Columbia in 1948 and married Les in 1957. She and Les operated their trucking companies for most of their married lives but her true passion was horses.
Faye raised and bred thoroughbreds for Hastings Race Park. She was also a volunteer fire fighter for the Popkum Fire Dept for many years before moving up to the South Okanagan area. Her passion for horses carried with her to the Okanagan where you could always find one or two horses in her field.
