She was an active volunteer for Bridget’s Cradles. Over the past five years, Faye crocheted over 3,000 cradles to provide hospitals with cradles for babies who are born into Heaven in the second trimester of pregnancy.
In August 2016, Bridget’s Cradles wrote an article about Faye and her work. They said, “Thank you, Faye, for being one of our most loyal volunteers! We love your beautiful cradles and all of the little crocheted butterflies and hearts you put on the sides of your cradles. We know that each family who receives your special cradles will be blessed by the works of your hands.”
