Obituary for Mary Ellen Fauster

Mary Ellen Fauster, 82, passed away on Wednesday, March 15th, 2018.

Mary Ellen was born on August 27th, 1936 to Lester and Sylvia Falbe, in Cornell, Wisconsin. While attending elementary school in Cornell, the family was transferred to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where Mary attended Shorewood High School. Upon graduation Mary enrolled into Prospect Hall Business College and became an administrative assistant to one of the major partners of a major law firm. Mary had many friends and became interested in ballroom dancing, she became an accomplished dancer marrying her instructor, Joseph Fauster on August 26th, 1961. Joe and Mary resided in West Bend, Wisconsin, where Joe began a successful career in retail management with J.C. Penny Co. Mary’s first son was born shortly before the family’s first transfer to Illinois, where later a second son was born.

Mary was a very caring and devoted Mom. She was active in the church choir, which became a great source of friendship and comfort for her family. Soon, it was time to move again, to larger cities and other states. New friends and neighbors quickly got Mary involved in women’s bowling and very close friendships grew. Later, Mary found time to work part-time for King-Bole-Holmes Construction and Oden-Thielking-CPA. Mary was truly an avid Green Bay Packers and Iowa Hawkeye fan and enjoyed “stongly discussing” the teams with relatives and friends.

Mary will be deeply missed by her family and husband, Joseph of fifty-seven years; sons, Scott (Brenda) Fauster, and Todd Fauster; grandchildren, Ashley (Ben) O’Malley, Aaron Fauster; great-grandchildren, Olivia and Emilie O’Malley; sister, Betty Wieshiepl; and numerous nieces and nephews. Mary was preceeded in death by her parents, Lester and Sylvia Falbe and sister, Loretta Dumholt.
