Pat always said she knew from the first time she saw Guy Elmo Faught that she would marry him one day. On June 16, 1966, they began their 55 years of marriage in the Manti Temple. After a short time they made their home in Mesquite, Nevada where they raised their son and five daughters. She was a selfless, devoted and loving wife, mother and grandmother. She was never more happy than when she was surrounded by her children and grandchildren.
Pat loved people, and she particularly loved the children she worked with in her job as a bus driver for the Clark County School District. Prior to working as a bus driver, she spent many years caring for children in her home and had a gift for making others feel valued and loved.
