Faith Ann Bosin

June 5, 1942 — April 26, 2024


Faith Ann Bosin (1948-2024)

A much-loved Wife, Mother, Sister, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Aunt and friend

to many. Her smile was a shining metaphor to the loving, caring person she was and

you could not help but be captivated by it. Faith Ann Bosin, 81, of Warrenton, Oregon, died

after an unexpected sickness at Oregon Health Sciences University, Portland, Oregon.

She was born in Englewood, New Jersey in 1942 to Edward and Audrey Nierhoff. Later

the family moved cross country by car in 1948 to a community near Milwaukie Oregon.

Their family lived a typical American suburban life of work, school, and church were

they also enjoyed getting out into the Oregon countryside. In school she found a

passion in art and even dabbled for a while playing the accordion. Faith attended school

at Concord elementary, Milwaukie Jr. High, and Graduated from Milwaukie High School

in 1960 before becoming a wife and mother. She later entered the workforce in

manufacturing and warehousing for over 30 years.

Faith met the love of her life, Gary in 1958 at Milwaukie High School and they married in

1961. Faith and Gary started a family immediately with Greg 1961, Taunji 1964, and

Carman 1966. While raising a family in Milwaukie Oregon she supported her husband’s

amateur drag racing career until they switched to family camping and venturing around

Oregon. They later settled into a country life in 1974 to Eagle Creek, OR on the banks

of the Clackamas River where they continued to raise their family and invested heavily

into the wellbeing of their grandchildren. In their community Faith oversaw the water

system for many years. After becoming a widow in 2018 she moved to Warrenton

Oregon in 2019 to be closer to her son where she enjoyed the coastal lifestyle, watching

Mariner games and classic movies. She was meticulous in updating and maintaining

her homes, creative in decorating indoors and outdoors. In all things, family, work, home

she was driven in giving her best in everything she did.

Though she loved her home activities her legacy is the nurturing of her 5 grandkids who

gifted her 5 great grandchildren and loved being their G’ma and GG’ma particularly

lessons in moral character and instilling warm traditions, particularly around the

holidays, her favorite being Christmas.

Faith is survived by her sister Audrey Hadley, Salt Lake City, UT (Daughters Cherylyn,

Shauneen, Deanne, Richelle), brother-in-law John Bosin, Gold Canyon, AZ (Wife
