Faye Elaine Miles (75) ended her long battle with Alzheimer's Disease on Oct. 5, 2015. Born in Bridgton, Maine she was the daughter of the late Ethel Claire (Barker) and Archibald Miles. She is survived by her partner of 35 years, Barbara A. Meehan, of Wareham.
For 28 years Faye taught PE at Old Rochester Regional High School. She had also taught in New York, Connecticut and Rhode Island. During her long career she coached tennis, field hockey, and basketball. Over the course of her career she truly made a difference in the lives of so many students. Faye graduated from the University of Maine in Orono as a history major and PE minor. At one time she was ranked 7th in New England in tennis. Eventually golf replaced tennis and Faye was a Club Champion at Little Harbor in Wareham. After retiring from ORR she worked in the greenhouse at R.F. Morse where she developed a love for gardening. Often she brought home plants headed for the scrap heap and was able to nurse them back to health. Faye loved being outside in her garden or on the golf course.
In addition to her partner she is survived by her brothers, Douglas (Anita), Donald, David (Rosalie) and her sisters, Natalie MacAllister and Lucille Mayo all of Maine. She is also survived by many nieces and nephews. Faye is survived by her half-sister, Mary Porter (Al) of Maine. In addition, Faye leaves her Connecticut family, Aileen Meehan Hurley and Stacie Hurley of West Haven.
Faye was predeceased by her brothers-in-law, David MacAllister and Philip Mayo, her nephew, Peter MacAllister, and her half sister, Louise Houston.
Many thanks to some very special staff and residents on Units 1 and 4 at Forestview and to some who have gone elsewhere. You know who you are. Special thanks to the hospice staff at Community Nurse. You truly made this difficult time easier.
According to Faye's wishes there will be no calling hours and her service will be private. Know that Faye believed in "paying it forward" and did many anonymous kind acts. If you wish to honor her memory do something kind for someone who doesn't expect it. And when you do, look up and say, "This is for you Faye. We will miss you."
In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Walk to End Alzheimer's 2015, Team "Friends of Faye", 480 Pleasant Street, Watertown, MA 02472 or Community Nurse Home Care, Memory Loss Program, 62 Center Street, Fairhaven, MA 02719.
