Fae Louise Wilson Corey, our loving mother, grandmother, great grandmother, aunt, and friend, passed away on Friday, February 18, 2022 due to natural causes of age.
Fae was born on April 26, 1934 to Raymond and Lena Wilson. She was raised on Patterson Avenue in Ogden City. On March 21, 1953, she married Dean G. Corey. In October of that same year, they were sealed for time and eternity in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Logan Temple. Fae and Dean made their home and raised their family in Plain City where she resided for over 60 years.
Fae will be remembered for her cheerful, humorous demeanor. She could often be found giggling over a silly joke or her clever way of playing games. She is remembered for her bounteous vegetable garden, fun quilts, artistic cake designs, and baked delights especially her donuts. She will be most remembered for her dedication to service and her love for family and friends.
For many years she volunteered at Plain City Elementary. She served in church callings including Relief Society President. She worked in the recorder’s office at the Ogden Temple and spent countless hours recording personal histories and doing family history. In 1987, she and her husband served a mission in Austria Vienna. Fae had a deep love and testimony for her Savior as shown through her Christ-like life.
Fae would help strangers (soon to be friends) who needed a ride when their car had broken down, a meal, a smile, or someone to talk with. The word angel was often associated with Fae.
Fae touched many lives and will be greatly missed. We already miss her honking car horn in our driveways beckoning us to come visit or receive a baked delight. We miss her sparkling blue eyes, her smile, and sense of humor. We will never forget her selfless nature, her righteous example, and her generous loving heart.
Fae has joined her husband; daughters Lauri Kay and Julia Fae; parents; and siblings Betty Kap, Lois Wilson, and Kenneth Wilson upon her death. Fae is survived by her children Cathy (Bill) Mace, Jan (Kent) Stratford, Sue (Kim) Holmes, Nathan (Jean) Corey, Nanette (Walter) Smith, and Ralene Carter, 30 grandchildren, 42 great-grandchildren, her brother-in-law Don Kap and much-loved nieces and nephews.
The family would like to thank Melissa Sharp, Danielle Roberts, and Teresa Burell who gave loving care to Fae for many months. We also give special thanks to our sister, Ralene, who sacrificed much to move in with mom and give her loving, kind, and gentle 24-hour care.
Graveside Services will be held Wednesday, February 23, 2022 at 12:00 noon at the Ogden City Cemetery.
