PRICE-Anna "Faye" Vuksinick, 84, passed away Aug. 6, 2008, on the same day she was born in 1924. She passed away at the home of her daughter Lynette. She was born in Price, Utah to Charles A. and Kisty M. Jensen Fausett. She married Martin L. Vuksinick. Later divorced.

Mom touched many lives as a nurse, a profession she loved being a part of. One of her proudest accomplishments was when she completed school for her LPN license. She spent many committed years caring for others and had great compassion for her "little people" in the nursing home. She told us many stories about the people she cared for and I think we were the only kids who weren't afraid to go to a nursing home. During those years, she cared for her mother, sisters; Ila and Pearl. When she retired from nursing, she returned two weeks later to work part-time. She said retirement was "boring".

Once she retired, she volunteered as a Pink Lady at Carbon Hospital until 2004 when her health began to decline.

Lynette and I feel the most important lesson she taught us was to be a family that stuck together through good and bad times and to rely on each other for love and support. We do that today in her honor.

Later in life, Mom and her three sisters moved back into the family home. She was always the one to say, "Come on, sit down, lets chat". To her grandkids, she was always going to give them a "talking to" or "give them a lickin". She would say, "Do you know what that is?"

Lynette and Vanessa want to thank Angie Fausett and Jenn from CNS for their kindness and compassion during Mom's last days.

Survived by her daughters; Lynette Wells and Vanessa (Ben) Benedict, grandchildren Jason and Kyle Hamann, Joshua and Jessica Wells. Jessie (James), Sasha, Brandon Benedict, Jennifer and Jeremy Fairbanks, Christopher and Octobre Benedict, Heidi and Erik Petersen, and eight great- grandchildren, sister; Wayne Smith. She is preceded in death by her parents, daughter Melanie, grandson Justin, son-in-law Kevin Wells, sisters; Jenny, Eloise, Pearl, Ila, Ruth, and brothers; George, Ray, and Jess. If you wish, donations can be made to the American Cancer Society in Faye's name.

Funeral services were Saturday, Aug. 9, 2008 at 11 a.m. at Fausett Mortuary (680 East 100 South, Price, Utah). At Mom's request, there was no viewing so family and friends met at 10 a.m. prior to services. Interment was in the Price City Cemetery, next to Justin and Kevin. Funeral services were in the care of Fausett Mortuary.
