So sorry to learn of Faye’s passing. She led a full life. I used to look forward to the UMW Christmas cookie sale every year and always stocked up with Faye’s thumbprint cookies. They were SO good. I used to tell people that my cookies were always baked by early December ... of course I didn’t bake them.

Lou, very very sorry to hear.

I'm very sorry to hear of Mrs. Umbach's passing. I look forward to seeing Tim again whenever the memorial service is planned.

We so sorry to hear of Faye's death. She was a fellow book club member in which we shared many a book review An avid reader she shared many good stories. Our deepest sympathies.

Faye always had wonderful suggestions for our book group. She also shared her scrapbooks with photos of the latch hook creations she made. She was a multi-talented, kind, & friendly lady. It was my pleasure to know her.

Lou, I am so sorry for your loss. Faye was a dear Christian lady.

My family and I were very sad to hear of Faye's passing. She was always welcoming (and tolerant!) of me throughout the years. We hope that the Umbach family finds some comfort in all the memories you've created together.

Lou, I am so very saddened by your loss. Faye's smile could light up a room. My prayers for you and your family.

Tim, I am very sorry to have just learned of your mother's passing. May your memories bring you comfort and keep a smile on your heart.

My condolences to the Umbach Family. As neighbors for years in Youngstown, Mrs Umbach was always generous with her time and energy -- plus our families seemed to have a lot of fun back in the day!!. May you have many happy memories to keep forever.
