Fayth met her husband Gary while skating at Lafayette Square in December, 1953; they were married in July of 1962.

Fayth was a founding member of the Lakeside/Lester Park Citizens' Patrol; was co-chair of the 1890s Classroom Museum at Old Central for seven years. She was an accomplished gourmet cook and enjoyed sharing wonderful meals with family and friends, and organizing get-togethers and reunions with many Park Point and other friends.
