Fae Barfuss Weston passed away peacefully at her home on Tuesday, January 1, 2019, at the age of 94. She was born May 17, 1924 to her parents John Christian Barfuss and Lillian May Currell Barfuss in Tremonton, Utah. Fae grew up working on the family farm. She graduated from Bear River High School and Seminary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. After graduating, she moved to Ogden, to work at the Army Supply Depot during World War II, where she was a messenger and later a clerk typist.
Fae married Eldon Earl Weston on September 9, 1949 in the Salt Lake Temple. After the birth of their first child, they bought a home in Plain City. After her children were all in school, she worked at Plain City Elementary School as a playground supervisor, and cook for 13 years.
She was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, serving in many positions. Fae and Eldon served a mission in Birmingham, Alabama. Later they were called to serve in the Spanish Extraction program.
Fae and Eldon were active in their community. For many years they helped with Plain City Founder’s Day, Community Clean-up Days, and 4th of July celebrations, including being the Grand Marshals in 2008.
She loved spending time with her family, and enjoyed tending to her flowers, gardening, canning, cooking, embroidery, crocheting, and making quilts. She enjoyed being of service to others in every way. Fae and Eldon enjoyed going to Yuma, Arizona for the winter months which they did for 16 years. They loved to go camping with their family and friends.
Fae was preceded in death by her parents, husband, brothers; Lyle, Dean, Floyd, Jay, sisters; Lorna Christensen, Hazel Mahnke, Elva Hansen, daughter-in-law Rebecca Weston, and great-granddaughter Emma Taylor.
Fae is survived by one sister, Marilyn (Roy) Hadley-Tremonton; children, Brent-Plain City, Dallas (Joyce)-Plain City, Rex (Pam)- Farr West, Don (Kelly)-Plain City, Lisa (Neil) Cox- Plain City; 23 grandchildren with 21 spouses; 54 great-grandchildren and 3 on the way. Fae’s wonderful example will never be forgotten by her family.
We would like to express our thanks to Mom’s nurse Tiffany, and Mom’s aid, Kelci, who became a special part of our family. Also, special thanks go to her neighbors, Gordon and Karma Sorensen, for their years of friendship and service.
