Faye’s Career and Meeting Her Husband

Interviewer: Where did you practice most of your career?

Faye: Well I didn’t practice very long. Veterans was my first job for a year in Richmond, Virginia which is one of the most fun years of my life. American soldiers are wonderful. And then I went down to Duke to take some classes and also worked, I went to work at the hospital and I met my husband in the hospital on the second day I was there. I saw him sitting at the desk on the first day and he left a note on my desk when I went out to see a patient and I came back and he was sitting there and I said do you know who left this? And he pointed to himself.

Faye’s Love Story

Interviewer: Was your love story always so smooth?

Faye: Very smooth yes. He was very easy to get along with. He was so nice to me. I don’t know why he was so good to me but he was. Wanted me to go everywhere, do everything, see everything. Took me to a lot of different places for vacation. Yeah we had a good time. Almost 67 years.

Faye and Her Husband

Interviewer: What year did you move to Redding?

Faye: In ‘58 I believe it was. My husband went to work at the Redding laboratory. Dr. Flynn. He joined Dr. Flynn. He was the second partner there at the laboratory.

Interviewer: What was your favorite thing to do together?

Faye: Probably traveling and seeing the sights together. And eating out he loved to eat out, yeah. Dining that would be his favorite. And I went along with it. I like to eat too.

Interviewer: What do you think would be the secret, one of the secrets, to such a long and happy marriage? Besides the fact that he was so nice to you.

Faye: Well, no it was easy, it was easy with him because he was so kind and so sweet all the time. You know it’s hard not to get along and to enjoy yourself which I did.
