She was born on August 9, 1917 in Milford, Indiana to the late William and Marie (nee Cory) Ryman.
Faith married the love of her life, Myron A. Warstler on October 29, 1935.
Together the couple worked hard and became the co-owners of the Archway Cookie business in Ashland in the 1950’s.

Unfortunately, she lost her husband suddenly and sold the business several years later.
Faith would later marry a career Navy officer, Wayne E. Conner on December 31, 1960. Together the couple enjoyed living in Orlando, Florida after his retirement as Wayne worked with Walt Disney World as an early Imagineer.
