Joan Rose Faust

Joan R. Faust 1922 – 2013

Las Vegas - Joan Rose (Pajak) Faust, 90, formerly of West Springfield, died Valentine’s Day in Las Vegas surrounded by her family. She was born on December 30, 1922 and left us on February, 14, 2013. She was the last of the first generation of Pajaks. She follows her brothers Edward, Kasimir, William and Ted, as well as her mother Anna (Witalek) Pajak, and father Alexander Pajck. Joan was not famous. But, if you lived on Dewey Street in West Springfield, you knew her as the woman in the garden. She could be seen puttering around her strawberries, or riding around on her tractor. Joan got her thriftiness from being a child during the Depression, her courage from being a young woman during World War II, her hope from raising two children starting in the late 50s, and her grace from living her 90 years. Joan’s memory and inspiration lives on with her daughter Cynthia (Faust) Nickerson, her son Richard Faust Jr., her son in-law Garry Nickerson, Daughter in-law Laura Faust, her two granddaughters Lauren Nickerson and Lindsay (Nickerson) Burden, her grandson in-law Wyatt Burden and her two great-grand children Addison Burden, and Doc Burden. Her funeral will be held at the West Springfield Curran-Jones Funeral Home Saturday, Feb. 23rd at 10:00am followed by burial in St. Thomas Cemetery. Visiting hours will be held prior to the funeral on Saturday morning from 9:00 – 10:00am. For more details please visit curranjones.com. "God gave us memories that we may have roses in December."--J.
