Dorothy Lorraine Faix, 82, entered into rest on June 27th, 2011 in Modesto. She was born on December 5, 1928 to the late Peter and Nora Kooyman. In heaven she joins her siblings; Peter Kooyman Jr. and Vincent Kooyman.
Dorothy leaves behind her beloved husband Norman Faix whom she spent 55 beautiful years with. Her children: Dennis Underwood and wife Rose of Modesto, Donna Thomas of Manteca, Richard Faix of Modesto and Christopher Faix and wife Nicole of Manteca. She was blessed by 4 grandchildren: Jeffrey Underwood, Brian Thomas, Nicole Thomas and Ashley Lorraine Faix as well as 3 great grandchildren. Dorothy was a sister to Connie McKinney and Casey Kooyman.
Dorothy was a homemak-er that loved taking care of her family. Her children were the highlight of her life. She enjoyed cooking up a new recipe as she would read through her many cookbooks and was able to sense what it would taste like just by reading the recipe (A skill that her husband had yet to accomplish). Holidays at Dorothy’s were not simply a “Holiday” it was an event and everyone looked forward to spending time with her. Dorothy loved her friends dearly as she would gather at The Hair Compa-ny for her weekly touch up and extended conversations with her many friends. Dorothy had a true loving spirit that was felt by every- one. The people that were truly close to Dorothy could sense her every mood and her love of life. She will be remembered as a most loving wife, mother, grand- mother and true friend.
Arrangements for Mrs. Faix are under the direction of P.L. Fry and Son Funeral Home, 290 North Union Rd., Manteca. A Vigil will be held in her honor on Friday, July 8th, 2011 at 1:00pm in the Chapel. For condolences to the family please visit our web-site at www.plfryandson.com
