They raised their family on several ranches in Texas, New Mexico and Colorado, where Elmo trained and showed Quarter horses. Together, Elmo and Marguerite had a very strong music ministry and together they co-founded Cowboy Camp Meeting in Colorado. Their ministry was focused on the cowboys wanting to receive their salvation through Christ. Elmo preceded her in death on Aug. 9, 1969. Her ministry continued throughout her life as a caregiver of the many members of her family. She prayed for them, helped them through their sickness and continued to help their families to stay strong and as one. She was matriarch of the family. She moved to Lubbock in 1975 to help raise her grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents of Hereford, and four brothers, Darwin, Bonnie, Pete and Bob. Surviving Mrs. Faver are four generations of descendants: two daughters, Bonnie Hawkins and Pam Steffen; four grandchildren; 10 great-grandchildren; one great-great-grandchild; and 13 nieces and nephews.
