She was a wife, mother, grandmother and friend. She was a generous, soft hearted, caring person when someone needed her to be, But also could be a military drill sergeant that would kick your tail if the situation required it. She was a very strong woman with a huge heart. She loved her family and her racing family & friends very much so. She was a very devoted local dirt track racing supporter and fan. She at one time was a race car/truck driver herself, she was her husbands and families number one fan. GO #6!! She would jump up and down, yell, she would clap her hands, she would cheer with full excitement and with the biggest, warmest smile on her face. She so loved to go visit and camp out at all the different race tracks that her family and friends would travel to for big racing weekends. The racing community and her racing family she made over the years will miss her dearly. She loved to go camping in the woods and fishing with her dogs and family. She loved the out doors. She is the only person I know that could kill plastic flowers, she by no means had a green thumb. She even loved to go out in the boat on the lake and pull her husband behind it water skiing, oh the memories of "beaching" dad at twin lake one summer. She loved to do get together's with her family and do cook out's and just hang out while watching and helping her husband on the race car. She was involved in her church until she took ill and it was harder for her to go to church or anywhere. She was so pleased she got to go on a vacation cruise with the ladies on a big ship. If anyone was sick, hospitalized, giving birth, getting married, doing a sports outings for school or not, selling stuff for school or as a job, she was there to help and support you. She was always there for anyone. She oh so love animals. She had all kinds of pets from mice, gerbils, hamsters, birds to fish to pigs to cats to dogs and alligators and lizards, you name it whatever would show up she made it her baby. She was and is an all around beautiful woman that will be truly missed.

She wished to be cremated, which Ever Rest Funeral Home has arranged, she wished no viewing's or funeral be performed. Her ashes to remain with her husband and a portion to be given to each one of her children. Her wishes were for a Celebration of Life. She wanted a party, she wanted everyone to celebrate her life and passing. She wants to bring happiness to everyone's life not sorrow. She wished that all who she hurt in life to forgive her and she wants all who hurt her to know she has forgiven them. She wishes everyone to make peace in her passing. Her Celebration will be held at Wolf Lake Baptist Church at 1070 S. Wolf Lake Rd Muskegon, Michigan 49442 (no phone at church). On January 20, 2018 at 2:00 PM. A luncheon will be provided by the Ladies Mission. If any family members or friends would like to bring a dish to pass, flowers, cards or make a memorial donation to the Church/Ladies Mission, they are asked to bring to the church that day and make the donations out to the Church/Ladies Mission in Memory of Jeanette Farber.
