 HEBRON ESTATES - Terry Anne Faue was as loyal to the Girl Scouts as anyone.


Faue was forever memorialized during a special ceremony hosted at Camp Shantituck by the Area 14 Day Camp of the Girl Scouts of America, Kentucky Council.

A new flagpole was dedicated in Faue’s honor, with her family present and many colleagues in attendance to share memories.

A plaque was attached to the pole in Faue’s memory. The first flag raised on the pole was presented to Faue’s husband, Larry, during the ceremony.

The family said Faue first assisted in Girl Scouts when the family’s daughters joined. The daughters, Tracy Fajardo, Kim Williams and Jessica Faue, all attended the event.

“(Terry) was committed to helping out and getting the girls involved,” said Larry. “She wasn’t in the Scouts herself and she wanted to give the girls a better chance than she had.”

From that start Faue stayed with the Scouts for 30 years, ranging in duties from Cookie Mom to co-leader of the Troops to community volunteer. He main duties for many years was serving as the kitchen manager.

“As long as she was alive she was going to stay involved,” Larry said.

The family noted that from the Camp Shantituck kitchen area, where Faue was often located, you can see the flagpole.

Guest speakers included two of Faue’s friends and former Day Camp directors, Karen Smallwood and Janet Coleman.

“Girls Scouts meant a whole lot to Terry,” said Smallwood. “She had thousands of girls plus three of her own. This was her summer home for over 20 years.”

Coleman added that Faue would remain at the camp for many overnight events as well.

“She always had a smile,” Coleman said. “She always had at least two jokes, and coffee for everybody. She fed thousands over the years.”
