Faye Mildred Achenbach, of Mountain Home, Idaho, died on Saturday, September 8, 2018, at her home. She was 88.

She was born on September 7, 1930, in Pine Grove, Pa., to Esther and Frederic Stupp, where she attended Pine Grove

elementary school and high school. She later obtained her Pennsylvania Insurance License in 1973, and a LPN degree in nursing from the Reading Hospital in Reading, Pa., in 1976. She was employed by Berks Heim and Wernersville State Hospital for a number of years.

She was predeceased by her husband, Richard, of 51 years in 1999.

She is survived by sons: Craig R., Jeffrey D., Mark W. and Richard F.; grandchildren: Sara E., Joseph C., Lindsey T. Hampson and Lee C.; one great-grandchild, Aria F.; and

sister, Annetta Wyatt.

Faye and Richard resided primarily in West Lawn, Pa., and New Port Richey, Fla., where they often welcomed family and friends.

Faye's early youth was spent with her large family on a farm where she developed her strong sense of independence and resourcefulness. After raising four sons as a homemaker, Faye embarked on a nursing career - at the time, a remarkable choice for a woman in her 40s that

affirmed her earlier pragmatism. In later years, she traveled extensively throughout the United States and Europe, housed a wide collection of books, offered well-versed

discussion in current events and remained particularly fond of cats throughout her lifetime.

A private family memorial service will be held. In lieu of flowers, contributions are greatly appreciated and can be made in memoriam to , or a local animal rescue organization of choice.

Cremation was under the care of Rost Funeral Home, McMurtrey Chapel, in Mountain Home, Idaho.
