Kristina C. ‘Tina’ Faber
Kristina Constance Faber (Tina) AKA (Mimi), of Motley MN joined her loved ones in the beyond on January 3rd 2019, 11 days after her 85th birthday encircled by her loving family. She has reunited with her beloved husband of 67 yrs Armand Albert Faber who passed on this last year. Tina will be greatly missed by many including her children Brenda Lee Faber, Micheal Faber (Diane Forsberg), Lisa Muenchow (Bryan), Daniel Faber (Pauline Salveson) & grandson raised as their son Daniel Faber Jr. (Paige.) So far Tina & Armand have welcomed 36 “grand champions!” ranging from grand to great-great grandchildren. We are expecting more!
In 1933 Tina was born in Nashua NH to Greek immigrants Eleni (Helen) Zaferiou & Micheal D. Makris. In 1951 Tina & Armand were married, they lived in Nashua for another 20 yrs before moving to their farm in MN. She was a compassionate, giving woman to more than just her family, volunteering at the food shelf, sponsoring needy children & mentoring many. Her generosity had no bounds nor did her interests. She enjoyed & excelled at bowling & fishing and even had the pleasure of fishing with the legendary Al Lindner. Her hobbies/talents included being an accomplished seamstress, working with yarn, doing jigsaw, crossword & other puzzles & games & was a wiz at scrabble. She was an avid reader on many topics who dearly loved her many pets & flower gardens throughout the years.
Her work history both in NH & MN was mainly waitress & factory work. Many would agree that she was a wonderful waitress partly due to her love of people. She served at the Quarterdeck on Gull Lake, River Inn & Mr. Ed’s. For 10 plus years she worked & made friends at what is now known as Trident Seafoods. She also spent many hours helping train & care for the greyhound dogs the family raised.
Tina’s unique & feisty personality was appreciated by those who knew her. She will be fondly remembered by her family as ~ the keeper of the bubbles. She’d say “I’m wrapping you in a protective bubble, angels will watch over you until we meet again.” – Tina Faber
