Faith Ann Mendez (Paape) passed away unexpectedly early Sunday morning January 23, 2022 in Appleton, WI. at the age of 79. She was a resident at Care Partners Assisted Living Facility in Appleton. Although she dealt with several health complications throughout her life it did not deter her from displaying a cheerful and kind disposition.
Faith was born June 14, 1942 in Clintonville, WI, the daughter of Earl and Betty Paape. She lived most of her adult life in Appleton, WI where she met and married Ralph Mendez and raised their daughter Maria.
Faith attended Zion Lutheran Church in Appleton and her faith in Jesus Christ sustained her throughout her life.
Faith was preceded in death by her husband Ralph and her parents. She is survived by her daughter Maria, two granddaughters, Tia and Isabelle, a brother Mark, two sisters, Susan and Marcy, as well as several cousins. Faith Ann was the family historian. She could remember names and dates and events better than anyone else in the family.
We will miss her kind heart, sincere concern for others and sense of humor and look forward to a glad reunion to come.
A memorial service is planned for this coming May at Zion Lutheran Church in Appleton.
At this time, cards and condolences for the Faith Mendez Family, in care of Mark Paape, may be sent directly to Heart of the Valley Cremations, 101 N. Elm St., Kimberly, WI, 54136
