Faye was born on Jan. 24, 1942, to Sylvester and Alice (Delong) Anderson in Redwood County, Minnesota. She was raised on the family farm, and attended school in Walnut Grove, MN. Faye graduated from Walnut Grove High School and married Errol Buterbaugh on July 11, 1959, in Lamberton, MN. The couple lived in Minnesota for one year before moving to Brookings and eventually Aurora, where Faye lived until the time of her death.
Faye and Errol raised three sons in Aurora; Michael, Matthew, and Timothy. Along with raising her family, Faye worked at First National Bank, Sears, and JCPenney.
Faye enjoyed camping with her family and taking numerous outdoor photos. She also enjoyed traveling to Branson and Nashville to listen to her beloved country music. She truly loved attending sporting events of her grandchildren, and later in life, Faye enjoyed watching the birds in her yard. She especially loved the cardinals.
