Eula "Faye" Krieger
September 21, 1931 - June 28, 2013
Faye was born Sept. 21, 1931 in Manila, Arkansas to Mildred and Elbert Riggs, the second of three girls. Her family moved to the L.A. Harbor area in 1948, becoming permanent residents in the South Bay. She was twelve and living in Wilmington when she met her future husband, Bruce Krieger, who was thirteen. Both attended Banning High School and were married on Dec. 11, 1949, when she was 18. They lived and raised two daughters in Wilmington until 1974 when they moved to Long Beach, joining the Belmont Shore community, which she loved. Faye worked for L.A. Unified with special needs children until she retired in 1996. She is survived by her younger sister, Ava Rogers of La Mirada, her loving husband of 63 years, Bruce Krieger, daughters, Lorelei and Paula, grandchildren, Brett, Alison and Brady and many nieces and nephews who will miss her dearly. She peacefully passed away while surrounded by loved ones on June 28, 2013 at Saint Mary's Hospital in Long Beach. Her family will be holding a private "Celebration of Life".
