Fayeann Dorn

Fayeann Dorn passed away peacefully on August 7, 2021 in North Mankato.

Memorial Service will be held on Friday, August 13 at 11:00 a.m. at Hosanna Lutheran Church.  Visitation will be Thursday, August 12 from 4:00-7:00 p.m. at Hosanna Lutheran Church and will continue one hour prior to the service.  Northview-North Mankato Mortuary is in charge of arrangements.

Faye was born November 28, 1946 to Lloyd and Mildred (Anderson) Drews in Waseca, MN. She was confirmed at Grace Lutheran Church of Waseca in 1961 and graduated from Waseca High School in 1964. 

In 1969 she married Douglas Dorn of New Richland. Faye was blessed to be a stay-at-home mom for most of her two children’s childhoods. She worked for LaSalle Management Company for many years; first at Gus Johnson Plaza and then as the manager of Colonial Square Apartments. Even though it was a professional role she took care of the residents as though they were her own family. She provided holiday meals and facilitated many other get-togethers for the residents. Despite retiring she couldn’t stand the idea of being idle, so she immediately started working at Palmer Bus Service as an aide for special needs children.

Her hobbies included ceramics, cooking, baking, attending her children’s and grandchildren’s events, and going to Mystic Lake with $20 burning a hole in her pocket. Faye was an active member and volunteer at Hosanna Lutheran Church of Mankato. She also spent a lot of time with the American Legion Post 518 of North Mankato where she made many friends. Faye’s greatest joy in life was bringing joy to others. Her giving spirit will be her legacy.

Faye is survived by her significant other, Jerry Billings of North Mankato; son, Todd (Mary) Dorn of Waterville; daughter, Staci (Tim) Vollmer of North Mankato; Jerry’s daughters, Cheryl (Joel) Oltman of Mankato and Renae (Scott) Homich of Mankato; grandchildren, Haley Vollmer of Waseca, Amber (Brady) Rohloff of Waseca, Jacki & Bobbi/Fayth Vollmer of North Mankato, Caden and Sam Oltman of Mankato, and Maddie, Tyler, Noah, Nevie, and Kalea Homich of Mankato; great-grandkids, Addison Howard of Waseca, and Oliver & Kinsley Rohloff of Waseca; sister, Connie (Gary) Frederick of Denmark, WI; brother-in-law, Marlyn Peterson of North Mankato; sister-in-law, Janet Drews of Albert Lea; and many cousins, nieces, and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her brother, Roger/Butch Drews; sisters, Carol Peterson and Vicki Gleason; and brother-in-law, Robert Gleason.
