Clo Grace Faechner
Born: Jan 01, 1931
Died: Aug 08, 2015

Clo Grace Faechner (Sisson), 84, passed into the arms of our Heavenly Father on August 8, 2015. Services will be held on Friday, August 14, 2015 at 10:30 a.m. at the 5th Avenue Christian Church in Havre, Montana. A luncheon to follow the graveside service at the 5th Avenue Christian Church. Arrangements have been made with Edwards Funeral Home of Chinook.
She was born on January 1, 1931, in Havre, Montana, where she was raised and lived her entire life. Clo married Earny Faechner on July 2, 1949. Clo enjoyed doing crafts, which included ceramic, but her favorite was working on her floral arrangements and Christmas decorations, especially the Christmas balls. Clo and her sister Judy would spend days in the shop getting ready for craft shows.
Clo enjoyed spending time with her 3 children, 8 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren. She enjoyed preparing large holiday dinners and always believed “the more the merrier”.
Clo absolutely loved to travel. Clo and Earny spent a lot of time traveling in their RV and Clo so fondly remembered her trips with her sisters and their families, and the trips that her friends were able to go on with them. Clo and Earny were able to travel to many states and wintered in Arizona for many years.
Clo was also able to travel to Europe two times, including her favorite country Ireland. She also was able to travel to England, Scotland, France, Switzerland, Italy and the Mediterranean.
Clo and Earny spent many weekends and holidays camping in the Bear Paws and were also members of the Blue Horizon RV Club where they met and became good friends with many people.
Clo worked for Lloyd Kelly at the Music Center in Havre for 17 years and for Audry Meiwald at the Mushroom Shop for numerous years.
Clo was preceded in death by her parents Mike and Mae Sisson and stepfather John Alvstad. She was also preceded in death by her sisters Shirley Velk and Deanna Maney.
Clo is survived by her loving husband of 66 years, Earny Faechner; children Dennis (Chel), Steve (Kim) and Sue; grandchildren Robyn, Chad, Tia, Tawny, Serena, Danielle, Breeze and McKayla; great grandchildren David, Emily, Jay, Dominic, Brady, Kye, Kaelina, Halle, and Iseah; and sister Judy Waldhausen.
The Faechner family would like to send a heartfelt thanks to the doctors, nurses, CNA’s and other staff at Benefis and the Grandview Areo Cottage for their outstanding care and compassion.
Donations can be made in Clo’s name to the Gift of Life House, P. O. Box 7008, Great Falls, Montana 59406.
