Obituary of Faye Lynn Redweik Leonard
Faye Lynn Redweik Leonard, 74, of Winamac, IN passed away at home on Friday, June 23, 2023 surrounded by her family. She was born on August 28, 1948 in North Judson, IN to the late Robert R. and AnnaBelle [Lash] Royce. Faye graduated from North Judson High School in 1966. On November 4, 1967, she married Edwin Emil Redweik. Faye and Edwin had two sons, Karl and Kevin. Edwin passed away unexpectedly on March 10, 1973.
Faye was introduced to Edward David Leonard by her late husband’s sister-in-law, Millie. Faye and David were married on December 6, 1975. He became a second dad to the boys and the family grew when they welcomed two daughters, Kellie and Karrie.
Faye worked at Gilsinger’s in Winamac for many years. To all the “kernels” in Winamac - there was only one “COB”. She retired in 2010.
Faye was a longtime member of St. Luke Lutheran Church in Winamac where she formerly taught Sunday school. She was a 4H Leader for Franklin Township for 20 years.
Faye and Dave enjoyed traveling, especially to Hawaii. Somehow, their adventures always landed them at a casino! Not a week went by without Faye getting her lottery tickets and scratch offs. She was the lucky one in the family. Faye also enjoyed crocheting and patching clothes for the family. She was an avid Judge Judy watcher as well.
Faye was hardworking, strong-willed, and stubborn. You always knew where you stood. She loved her family fiercely, even though she always said her kids gave her gray hair. Faye especially loved her grandchildren (who could do no wrong). She will be sadly missed and always remembered.
