West, Faye F. Woodford TROY Faye F. Woodford West, 73, of Troy, entered into eternal life on Tuesday, September 11, 2018, at St. Peter's Hospital in Albany surrounded by her loving family after a brief illness. Born in Utica, she was the daughter of the late Albert and Frances Christensen Woodford; and the beloved wife of Claude Allen West. Faye retired from the U.S.D.A.

Faye and Al loved spending winters in Fort Pierce, Fla. Everyone looked forward to her delicious home-cooked meals, mouth-watering roast turkey, her famous zucchini bread and the best homemade pizza. In addition to her husband, she is survived by her stepchildren, Darcy (John) Chorwat, Lisa (Mike) Wheeler and David (Jen) West; and stepdaughter-in-law Cheryl West. Faye is also survived by eleven grandchildren and two great-grandchildren; her cousin, John and Mary Orr of Lansing, N.Y.; her best friend, Barb Marcin; and her beloved pet, Oreo. She was predeceased by her stepson, Darin A. West. Family and friends are invited and may call on Monday from 9 - 11 a.m. at the Wm. Leahy Funeral Home, 336 3rd St., Troy.
