Foote, Faye Falter, age 92, of Silver Spring, MD. Born March 18, 1929, in Detroit, MI, passed March 13, 2022, at Shady Grove Hospital in Rockville, MD from complications of multiple strokes. Her husband of almost 40 years, Henry A. Foote, Jr, predeceased her in 1991. Her subsequent companion of 25 years, Ted Hannah passed in 2018. Beloved mother of Pamela Ham (Steve) of Lilburn, GA, Richard Foote (Brenda) of Potomac, MD and Carolyn Johnson of Frederick, MD. Adored grandmother to Nicole Bost, Katie Foote, Alex Johnson and Andrew Johnson. She had a large and diverse group of friends and loved to socialize but the pandemic did put a damper on that. Prior to the pandemic, she was an active member of the Red Hatters. She was a life member of the Seneca Valley Sugarloafers Volksmarching Club and had volksmarched in all 50 states and numerous countries with her husband and numerous friends. She was an avid traveler and had several “trips of a lifetime”, most notably a trip to the North Pole where her regret was that she did not jump in a hole cut in the ice with several others on the trip. She was an avid blood donor and donated at every available opportunity until a trip to Africa put her on a list of places to travel that precluded her ability to donate further. Faye was an extremely active volunteer and shared her talents for years working for the Visiting Nurse Association as well as at The Olney Theater. Her time spent with all of her grandchildren was very special to her. Oftentimes, she would recruit her grandsons to volunteer at The Olney Theater with her so everyone could see a performance for free.
Faye had an infectious personality and was known for her ability to turn any word into the prompt for a random song whether or not the recipient wanted to hear it. When she was 84, she took her grandsons (who were minors at the time) zip lining and insisted that when she pass, it be included in her obituary that she went zip lining with them herself. Her statement after she went zip lining was, “It was a lot of fun-and I don’t feel the need to do it again!”
Faye also spent years crafting and created numerous pieces of crewel artwork that the family cherishes. She also loved to garden and in the summertime, would be outside either tending to her vegetable garden or caring for some of her over 110 azalea bushes. She was full of life (and song) and beloved by many and her passing leaves a large void in many lives.
Memorial Services are being planned in the near future to be held at the Interfaith Chapel at Leisure World.
