They lived in the cities for a couple of years but eventually moved back and farmed with Jim’s brother, Larry and his wife, Sandi. Faith was a tiny woman, very strong and determined, milking cows twice a day plus making sure her husband, kids and hired hands were all fed.

She held many jobs over the years working at Stubs, a mink farm, cleaning cabins and eventually putting 20 plus years in at Northern Contours.
