Faith E. Barton, 88, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, August 6, 2017 at her residence.

Faith was born February l4th, 1929 in Zanesville, Ohio to the parents of Harley E. and Florence M. Bell. In 1949, she married Harry R. Barton of Zanesville, Ohio who survives, along with a daughter, Debra.

She attended and graduated from Zanesville High School, with a business background and while attending high school, she had the great honor and distinction of interviewing Miss Pearl Buck, who earned a Pulitzer Prize for her novel, "The Good Earth, and later for another novel, "Dragon Seed" later made into a movie.

With her accounting background, Faith was employed as one of the lead bookkeepers at Sears and Roebuck, Zanesville, OH, Hall China, East Liverpool, OH, was an employee of The Ohio University Purchasing Department while her husband pursued his degrees, and a junior high school secretary at Elida High School.

Formerly of Huron, Ohio, Faith was an active community leader, where she was a part of Child Study Club, along with being involved as a leader of young girls in Brownies and Girl Scouts.

A member of Lost Creek Country Club, she enjoyed golf, watching the Buckeyes, Atlanta Braves, and loved the NCAA March Madness. Her major passion was her family's well-being along with painting with watercolors, capturing the many scenes of Lake Erie along with still life paintings.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Harley E. and Florence M. Bell.
Other survivors include a brother, Richard Bell, (Amy) Debary, FL, two nieces Elizabeth Thompson (John) Tallahassee, Fl., Martha Corrigan (John) Deltona, FL, and two nephews, Rick Bell, (Tammy) of Bartlett, TN. and Gene Bell, of Friendly, WV.

Although she left us behind, there is no doubt, she was warmly greeted not just by Our Lord, but the family's dogs, Sammy, Maurice, and Biscuit, who probably ran to the Rainbow Bridge to welcome their grandma into the Lord's home.

Faith will be sorely missed by her family, friends, and many neighbors.

Visitation will be at Siferd-Orians Funeral Home on Tuesday, August 15, 2017, from 2-4pm, and 6-8pm.
