Faye Marie Knudsen was born March 14, 1926 in Tyler, MN to George and Katherine (Marti) Knudsen. She was raised and educated in Lake Benton and attended country school District 23 and also one year in Morris, MN. In 1940, she along with her family moved to Frazee. While in Frazee, Faye met the love of her life, Lyle Cole. They were united in marriage on March 18, 1944 at the United Methodist Church and for 64 years never left each others side. Lyle died on July 15, 2008.
During her younger years, Faye was employed at the 5 & Dime Store in Frazee. She candled eggs for a time but the majority of her working career was with Arctic Cat in Detroit Lakes. When Arctic Cat closed, Faye worked for Perham Sewing for a short period and finished her career with Frazee Care Center in the housekeeping department. Faye retired in 1981. She enjoyed her retirement years tending to her gardens every spring and summer, playing with her cats, crocheting and needlepoint where she made clothes for almost every family member, but always centered her life on her family.
