Elizabeth Faichney Obituary

Monson-Elizabeth Wayne Faichney (nee Lee), 95, passed away April 23, 2023.  Elizabeth was born in Paterson, NJ to the late Fredrick and Josephine Lee (nee Jeffery).  

Known to friends as Betty, she married James B. Faichney of Monson MA in 1971 and she was predeceased by James (February 8, 1988) along with her two sisters Barbara Lee and Margaret Four (nee Lee). She leaves behind two nephews: Emile and Laurent.

She was a long time resident of Fair Lawn, NJ, and was employed as a legal secretary for many years with the law firm of Boyle and Boyle in Bergan County, NJ. 

Betty was not a shy retiring woman.  She was always actively involved in life and that of her community. She was a well versed and an avid reader. 

After her retirement from the law firm, she and Jim relocated to Monson where she again became involved and invested in the community she grew to love deeply...Monson.  Their property was filled with trees, bushes, shrubs, and wild flowers. She had a passion for gardening and was a member of the local Garden Club for years. 

For a number of years Betty was a member of the local business owners group with her small but quaint shop known as the Grain Bin. She took pleasure in meeting and talking with her customers.

Another love of hers was the Monson Library to which she contributed and volunteered many hours. She assisted with fund raising especially when the rehab and new construction took place some years back. 

The Monson Senior Center also found great advantage in Betty’s past experiences, especially her knowledge of legal issues where Betty worked as   a program manager. This advantage was a valuable asset in her work  to provide access into assistance programs for senior residents of the area.  

Betty shared time with several close friends enjoying their visits, conversations, and dinners out at local restaurants.  She was definitely a food connoisseur.  Visiting her two sisters was always a treat.  In earlier years they especially looked forward to their annual trips at Hilton Head every summer.  

Gifts of remembrance in her name may be donated to the Monson Library or the Monson Senior Center. 

 All services were private and were entrusted to Lombard Funeral Home of Monson.
