Funeral services were held on Aug. 20 with burial at Ridgewood Cemetery, North Liberty.

Faye was born March 19, 1915, in Clarksville, the daughter of Ulysses and Bertha (Penrose) Harris.
She married Elbert L. Hildebrand in 1934 in Charles City. The couple later divorced. Faye then married John H. Clinton in 1951 and they were later divorced.
Faye grew up in Clarksville. She raised her children and worked as a cook at many restaurants– including Bishop’s Buffet in Waterloo. She later lived in the West Branch area. Moving to North Liberty over 30 years ago, Faye worked as a librarian’s assistant at the North Liberty Library. She also enjoyed being a foster grandparent to school children at Penn Elementary in North Liberty.
Faye enjoyed life– and she enjoyed laughing. Faye accepted the new technology of personal computers and embraced their ability–developing her own page– “Faye’s Page.” Reading, playing cards, bingo and having fun with friends and family was a priority to Faye.
Survivors include her children, Lyle Hildebrand (Alice) of Sebring, Fla., Les Hildebrand (Paula) of Des Moines and Elizabeth Hildebrand of Waterloo, Sharon Frauenholtz of Port Isabel, Texas, John (Pam) Clinton of Waterloo and Gerry (Julie) Clinton of Conesville; 14 grandchildren, numerous great and several great-great grandchildren and several nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, both husbands and her siblings.
