Golda “Faye” Holvey passed away peacefully on May 17, 2023. Faye was born at the old Wadsworth Hospital on June 5, 1927, to Victor and Mae Kreider. She was married to the late George Holvey for 58 years.
Faye is survived by daughter Sara Boyd, grandsons Dylan and Aaron Boyd, and sister Doris Burton. She also leaves behind many dear cousins and treasured friends.
A lifelong resident of Wadsworth, Faye graduated from Wadsworth High School in 1945, and then from Kent State University in 1950, with a B.S. in education. She taught second grade for Wadsworth City Schools, the first year at Isham, and the remaining years at Valley View.
Faye joined the Medina County Retired Teachers Association in 1998, and was a lifelong member of the Wadsworth United Methodist Church.
Sincerest heartfelt thanks for the visits and cards from friends, as well as the many caregivers and staff at Liberty Residence II, Altercare of Wadsworth, and Crossroads Hospice, who cared for, and came to love Faye, as we did.
A private graveside service will be held with Pastor Don Ebert officiating.
