Myers Dastrup Hamill
December 15, 1915 ~ March 31, 2012
Hamill returned to her Heavenly Father in the early hours
of Saturday, March 31, 2012 at home in Alpine, UT with her
husband and family members by her side. Faye was born and
raised in the small farming town of Sanford, CO. She advanced
so quickly in school that she found herself already graduated
at age15. She entered LDS business collage at the young
age of 16. After graduating she began working as a legal
secretary. Soon after marriage she and her first husband,
Sherly King Meyers, moved to California where she raised
her four daughters. She fell in love with the ocean, palm
trees, majestic mountains and warm climate.
Through her example, those around her knew that Faye had
a great love for family and was always a true believer in
Jesus Christ. She was a life-long member of The Church of
Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. More than anything, in
her heart she wanted her children and descendants to have
a testimony of Jesus Christ and a love for His gospel. She
had a love of music for many years as both a member and
chorister of her church choirs. Faye never forgot to send
a birthday card and gift to her many grandchildren and great-grandchildren
and remembered their special occasions.
After raising her family Faye devoted much time, effort
and resources to bettering her community and promoting culture
and learning. She began her civic service in 1964 as City
Clerk for the City of Ontario CA. In 1974 she began serving
on the City Council where she served for 18 years until
1992. She tried to encourage all young people to get an
education and felt libraries were an important part of it.
She served her community as a member of its Library Board
for many years. Community service was a big part of her
life. She also spent several years serving in the Los Angeles
Temple as a temple worker which was a very satisfying time
in her life. Later in life she fulfilled her love of service
by becoming a dedicated missionary in her area.
On March 23, 1991 Faye married Wayne A. Hamill. They were
later sealed in the Boise Idaho Temple. In 2009, Faye and
Wayne moved to Alpine, UT to be near her daughter Janie
and other family members.
Faye was preceded in death by her parents Earl Dixon Faucette
and Cady Florence Cornum Faucette, siblings Mary Faucette
Cunningham, Reece Faucette, Francis Faucette, and her daughter
Susan Ann Myers Kitley.
Faye is survived by her husband Wayne and her sister Golda
Faucette (Bob) Humphrey, daughters Carla (Bill) Pearce,
Janie (Richard) James, Elizabeth (Jim) John, 15 grandchildren,
46 great-grandchildren, and 8 great-great-grandchildren.
