Fay Ann Herald
August 25, 1935 - September 9, 2020
Fay Ann Herald, age 85, of Newark, DE, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family on Wednesday, September 9, 2020.
Born in Wilmington, DE on August 25, 1935, she was the daughter of the late LeRoy and Ann (McCullen) Davis.
Fay was a founding member of MBNA where she was a dedicated administrative assistant for 15 years. She had a loving heart and opened her home to everyone in her neighborhood where she always had room for one more at her table. Fay and her husband moved to Florida to enjoy retirement and especially loved to go boating together. While living in Florida, she discovered she had cancer and was a two-time cancer survivor. They eventually moved back to Delaware to be with their family. She will always be remembered as a loving mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, aunt, and a dear friend to many.
In addition to her parents, Fay was preceded in death by her loving husband, Frederick C. Herald; brothers, Lee and John “Bud” Davis; and sister-in-law, Charlotte Davis. She is survived by her children, Diana Pascal and Michael Herald (Laurie); brother, William Davis (Marcia); sister-in-law, Teresa Davis; grandchildren, Jessica, Melissa, Steven, Megan, and Lindsay; great grandchildren, Ellie, Cora, and Lennox; and several nieces and nephews.
Services and interment will be held privately.
