Obituary for Norma May Fauver

Norma May Fauver, 96, passed away Jan. 2, 2018, of natural causes, at Living Spring Residential Care of Lewiston. She was born March 28, 1921, to Sanford and Sarah Davis Larson, at Jerome, Idaho.

She was preceded in death by her parents; brothers Lavar, Orville and Len Larson; and sisters Delisle McCollum and Othella Hamrin. Also preceding her was her husband, Lloyd, daughter Jean, and sons David and Jeff.

Norma spent her childhood in Pierce and graduated as valedictorian of the class of 1939. Her family moved during World War II to Seattle, where her brothers worked in the shipyards and she worked in a shoe store. Norma's family moved back to Lewiston at the end of the war, and it was during this time she met and married her first husband, Karl Taylor. They welcomed a daughter, Jean Ann. They divorced, and Norma married Lloyd Fauver in December of 1949 in Lewiston.

Lloyd adopted Jean and together they had seven additional children: Jean (Stan) Wilson, Michael (Donna) Fauver, David Fauver, June (Andy) Bible, Janis (Bob) Whetstine, and Tom, Jim and Jeff Fauver. She was a proud grandma to seven grandchildren: Lance (Judy) Wilson, Jennell (David) Reece, Jaime (John) Southmayd, Cyndi (Brett) Steele, Samantha (Jason) Donat, Candace (Jeremy) Pauley and Nathan Fauver; as well as 11 great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren.

Norma was a stay-at-home mom who was always busy caring for her children, including a special-needs child, and then for her grandchildren.

She loved baking for her large family and her children's friends. She is still remembered by a few of these friends for her cookies. Some of her grandchildren nicknamed her "Grandma Cookie." In later life, she loved to read, especially Danielle Steele books. At 90 years old she learned how to operate a Kindle Paperwhite, which was a lot easier for her to hold.

During the past year Norma was a resident of Living Spring Residential Care, Lewiston. She loved living there, where she felt at home. Thanks to Pat Fowler and her family and staff who always treated Norma with love, dignity and respect. Thank you also to the hospice team from St. Joseph Regional Medical Center, who helped make her final days peaceful.

Norma was cremated and a remembrance of her life will be held in the spring.

Memorial donations should be made out to Tri-State Hospital Foundation.
