Anna Faye Duggan Obituary
Anna Faye Duggan January 25, 1934 - September 28, 2012 Anna Faye Duggan was born in Lindsay, Oklahoma on January 25, 1934, and raised in Shafter, California. Born to Ben and Clara Duggan and the youngest of 9, she was surrounded by a supportive and loving family. Faye's strong bond with her sisters throughout her life was a testament to the love and commitment that their family shared. Faye is survived by her four sisters, Mary Sturgeon, Mae Hensle, Ethel Orr, Ada Dacus, her two children, Linda Roberts and Dennis Cooper, her four grandchildren, Amy Zachary Penton, Berkley Roberts, Joseph and Jacob Cooper, and her great granddaughter, Parker Penton. Beautiful Anna Faye Duggan lived life to its fullest. Her signature laugh, charming smile, and outgoing personality brought joy and fun to all of those around her. Faye loved community and her many friends were a testament to her light. She was always the life of the party and enjoyed every opportunity to dance or sing. Her free spirit inspired others to follow their own path and live in the moment. Faye appreciated the finer things in life by collecting, decorating, and surrounding herself with beauty. Her home was always sprinkled with fun and fancy treasures and mementos, each having their own very special significance. She was a historian of experiences, cataloguing the lives of her family, leaving gifts of photographic memories to share with those she loved. Whether it was ceramic art or planting in the garden, Faye loved to work with her hands. She was a talented self-made horticulturist. She loved to spend time in her yard, tending to her many plants, cultivating baby palms, and creating beauty all around her with nature. Her yard was shared with many, whether it was the stage for an Easter egg hunt or the backdrop for a wedding of loved ones, Faye's talent and love of nature provided serenity and joy for all. Faye's humble and steadfast upbringing embedded strong will and charisma into the fabric of her soul. An independent woman, ahead of her time, she worked her way up in business, demonstrating a strong work ethic and a commitment to being self-sufficient. She was a pioneer, pushing the barriers for women of her generation. Faye will be missed and loved forever. There will be a viewing held at Peters Funeral Home in Shafter on Tuesday, October 2 from 1pm - 3pm.
