Kathryn Jane Faubion passed away peacefully Thursdya, Jan. 19, 2023, at home, surrounded by family.
She was born July 31, 1956, at Crawfordsville, to Royal and Shirley (Dehne) Faubion.
Kathy, known to those close to her as “Wilamina,” to her son “Mother of mine,” was a woman of substance. Strong and determined to do her best whether it was caring for others, working in her garden, quilting or her artwork. She was eclectic, witty and her laugh could be heard throughout the room making others laugh with her. Spring was her favorite time of year when the redbuds would bloom and time for the annual sister/friend greenhouse run to see the new plants and garden art available. She was a twin and will be sorely missed by all.
Studied at the Art Institute of Chicago. She once wrote that her art would say the words she wanted to convey. As an artist, I can portray all the senses and emotion on a white sheet of paper that will last a lifetime.
In 2007 she won third place at the Embroidery Classic. For the last 10 years, she worked at Penguin/Random House where she had many friends and loved working there. A celebration of her life will be done in the spring. Look for an announcement on Laura or Sarah’s Facebook page.
Kathy is survived by her son, Graham (Kellsey) Faubion; granddaughter Lydia Faubion; father Royal Faubion; twin sister Laura Faubion (Skip Brenton); siblings, Mark Faubion and Sarah (Jim) Hayes; step-father Hector Monroy; uncles, Steve and Dick Dehne; and several nieces, nephews, cousins and extended family.
She was preceded in death by her mother, Shirley.
Cremation was chosen with Sanders Shoemaker Funeral Care assisting with arrangements.
