Faye Ellen Amberger, 82 of Attica, passed away peacefully on September 24, 2022 at her son’s home in Pavilion. She was born May 19, 1941 in Attica, to the late Edward Schmidt and Bertha (Jones) Schmidt.

Faye was a lifetime resident of Attica, born in her parent’s home, living in the village, and working as a bank teller at the age of 17. Until she retired from the “new” bank up the street, then known as the Marine Midland. In 1967 the love of her life built their Dream Home just outside the village, staying in the township, where they spent the rest of their lives together. She loved watching and feeding the birds, and wild rabbits in the winter. She loved puzzles and in later years, many trips to the casino.
There will be a spring time service held at her final resting place at Forest Hill Cemetery in Attica.
