Obituary of Hilda Fay Reed
Fay Reed, age 90 of Blissfield, entered into the presence of her Lord on Wednesday, August 28, 2019. Fay is survived by her children, Mike (Candace) Reed of Blissfield, Candace (Kent) Walters of Jenison, MI, Judy (John) Newlin of Blissfield, William Reed of Blissfield, her grandchildren, Andrew Reed, Heidi Lee, Heather Crysler, Scott Walters, Evan Walters, Jonathan Walters, Nathan Newlin, Jessica Newlin, Brittany Reed, Will Reed, 12 great-grandchildren and a brother-in-law, Robert Bishop of Adrian. Preceding her in death were her parents, her husband of 66 years, Don and four siblings, Robert Krouse, Sam Krouse, Jack Krouse and Joyce Bishop.
Fay was born December 15, 1928, in Adrian, to William Herman and Lila (Rinehart) Krouse. On August 7, 1948, Fay married Donald Reed in Angola, IN and he preceded her in death on March 21, 2015. Fay and Don were one of the early families that attended Ogden Community Bible Church. Fay spent many Sundays in the church nursery and sent birthday cards to the children as they grew. She and Don made sure the church yard was mowed and trimmed for many summers. In her later years, Fay attended Jasper Bible Church and Blissfield Baptist Church. Fay helped sort and box sweet corn on the farm until she was no longer able. Watching the activity on the farm from her windows and putting together 1,500 piece puzzles kept her involved and content. She was always there to listen to her children and empathize with their hearts. Her children are grateful that their Mom and Dad took them to church and helped them to know who Jesus is.
