Faye Adelle Dunn was born February 8, 1923, at Quimby, Iowa to Bertrand F. Dunn and Jennie Mae Ware Dunn. Faye was united in marriage to Ivan Nathaniel Wyum on November 23, 1942 in Breckenridge, Minnesota. Faye and Ivan made their home on a farm in Hills, Minnesota until 1958 when they moved to Brandon, South Dakota. The couple moved to Sioux Falls, SD in 1981 when Ivan retired from building homes. Faye became a resident of Brandon again in 1991.

Faye's family was very important to her and she showed her love every day to her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She enjoyed cooking meals for family gatherings. She could lay out a smorgasbord for 15 people who could walk through her door without any notice. She prepared cookies, cakes, doughnuts and endless cups of coffee for any and all who came to her home. She was a loving, caring woman to many. Above all else, Faye loved her lord and savior Jesus Christ and was a long time member of Brandon Lutheran Church.

Faye is survived by her three daughters, Ruth Greier, Rochester, MN, Donna (Gary) Erickson, Casa Grande, AZ and Deanna (Rich) Swenson, Brandon, SD; eight grandchildren, Heidi (Aaron) Kingstrom, Tammi (Tom) Heath, Mark (Kerri) Greier, Todd (Michelle) Erickson, Lisa (Bob) Johanson, Sara Swenson (Dave Duszynski), Ryan (Jennifer) Swenson, Sean (Erin) Swenson; 17 great-grandchildren, Ashley Voshell, Jessica, Miranda and Nolan Kingstrom, Dylan Heath, Sydney and Zach Greier, Aaron, Samantha and Brandon Erickson, Brittany, Caleb and Logan Johanson, Addison and Nolan Swenson, Kiera and Kaelyn Swenson.
