Faye Catherine Biggs
Faye Catherine Biggs (Hanson), aged 72 years of Moose Jaw, SK passed away peacefully on Wednesday, November 22, 2023 with her family by her side.
Mom was predeceased by her parents, Richard Eric Hanson and Agnes Watson Lafferty, her daughter Angela Rose Biggs, her sister Anne Wiebe, and her brother Leonard Hanson.
Mom is survived by the father of her children Rodney Biggs, her children Nikki (Johnny) Biggs, Missy (Kris) Lesniewski, Robbie (Meghan) Biggs, her grandchildren Braeden, Raine, Kaedi, Mikaela, Ryder, and Kennerley, siblings Dorothy Mantell, Andrew Hanson, and Roy Hanson, her lifelong friend Colleen Berg, numerous nieces & nephews, cousins, and other loving relatives and friends.
Mom was born on September 25, 1951, in Central Butte, Sk and raised on a nearby farm. Mom left the farm at the age of 20 and moved to Moose Jaw where she then worked at CanaDays Apprarel Ltd.
She was married in 1976 and then began her family where she had three beautiful children. Mom was a stay-at-home mom and raised her children. She also had a day home where she took care of other children, and those children became family. Later in life mom worked as a cleaner for Linda’s Heart and Soul and then worked at Perth’s Cleaners.
Earlier in life she enjoyed going out with friends and dancing. Mom also enjoyed watching her soap operas and The Price is Right, cards, cribbage, cross words, spending time with her children and her grandchildren, going daily for coffee with her sister Dorothy, brother Andrew, and friends. The grandchildren would sometimes join them when they were in her care and grandma always made sure they went home with different kinds of toys. Mom loved spending time with her grandchildren as they were her pride and joy. Mom also had her companion Jay, which was her little shadow that followed her around everywhere she went.
In September of 2017, mom battled a life changing hurdle which tested her strength and changed her way of life which she was then placed in long term care in Extendicare. She received amazing care from the staff which became family. She enjoyed daily activities, especially Bingo. She always said everyone cheated and when she did win, she would get a “stupid chocolate bar”. She kept all the staff on their toes and the nick name she was given was “TROUBLE”.
Mom was known for her feistiness, toughness, and her infectious giggle. She was kindhearted, generous, and always there when her family needed her. Her giant heart touched the lives of everyone that knew her, and all are grateful to have had her in their lives.
Special thanks to the dedicated staff at Extendicare, as well as the nurses and doctors at Dr. F.H. Wigmore Regional Hospital for their care and kindness.
