Fay Irene Mys (Kunce)

October 24, 1942 - May 22, 2021


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Fay Irene Mys (Kunce).  Fay passed peacefully into the arms of her Savior, Jesus Christ on Saturday, May 22, 2021.  She is no longer in pain and is rejoicing and dancing in the presence of her Lord.

Fay was born October 24, 1942 to Hal & Pauline Kunce in High Prairie, Alberta, the oldest of 5 children and was raised in White Rock, BC. Fay moved to the interior in 1966. Fay put herself through nursing school while raising her 4 children.  She worked at Kelowna General Hospital and Vernon Jubilee hospital as well as caring for autistic children at home and worked as a midwife during her years in Cherryville. Fay married Mike Mys in the summer of 1980. Pappy was the love of her life.  They were married for over 40 years before he passed in August 2018.

Fay was very creative and well known in the Nakusp/Fauquier area as the cinnamon blossom lady at the Needles Ferry!  Fay also ran a thrift/craft shop at the Needles Ferry called the Funky Flea where she created and sold her beautiful wares.  In recent years she loved to make tye dye Tshirts and prepared everything needed to show her great grandchildren how to make their own tie dye Tshirts. Fay deeply loved and was devoted to her family and her community.  She invested in the lives of many children in the area, picking them up for Sunday school and even had them put painted handprints on her van. Fay was always serving and loving others putting others ahead of herself and was passionate about sharing her love for Jesus with everyone she knew.

She is predeceased by her husband Mike, son Danny, sister Audrey (Webster) and brothers Leonard & Freddy and step-son Bill.  She is survived by her 3 children Gail (Randy Zarr), Micheal (Wanda Agar) and Dennis (Nancy Agar) and 4 Stepchildren Carolyn. Susan (Ivan), Mike (Ellie) & Johnny (Diana).  Grandchildren Chelsea, RJ (Christy), Kore, Hannah (Patrick), Jordan (Riley), Danett (Erik), Travis (Stephanie), Matthew, Daniel (Rachelle), Marcy(Mark), Kerry, Melissa, Lewis, Ashley (Jeremy), and Great Grandchildren Daniel, Landon, Nevaeh, Axel, Isaiah, Gabriel, Savory, Hawksley, Orland, Jack, Jackson, Emelia, Samantha, Elizabeth, Colt, Rebecca, Jonathan, Olivia and her sister Bonny (Festing), step-brothers David & Arthur (Paul) and numerous nieces and nephews.
