Dean William Faust was born October 10, 1928 to Vera Cleo and John “Bill” Faust on a farm north of Kanawha. He attended rural school and graduated from Corwith High School in 1946.

Dean was united in marriage to Carmine Geibel on June 6, 1951. Together they farmed and raised their family on the Peaceful Valley Farm near Britt for 60 years until moving into the Belmond Community Apartments and Belmond Rehabilitation Center.

Dean loved the country life, watching things grow and tending the livestock. He spent many years as a storm spotter, watching the sky and reporting to the National Weather Service.

Dean was a member of the United Methodist Church, active in numerous civic organizations, and bowled on several Britt bowling leagues. They also owned Faust’s Home Furniture. In later years, after his retirement, he still enjoyed farming with the Doughans.

Nothing pleased him more than spending time with his wife, family and friends. He was a great conversationalist and prayer Warrior! God’s promise…a life lived in Him never ends….he lives and loves us still!

Dean is survived by his wife Carmine and his 5 children: William (Marilyn) of Sun City West, Arizona; Denise (Harlan) Dorenkamp of Belmond; Paul of Mason City; Dawn (Doug) Doughan of Clear Lake; Donald (Brecca) of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania; 15 grandchildren and 40 great-grandchildren; and sister-in-law Carole (Norman) Wallen.

Dean was preceded in death by his Parents, Daughter-in-law Lisa Faust, Sister and Brother-in-law Jean Ann and Raymond Paca, and Brother and Sister-in-law Don and Juanita Faust.

Again, remember: God’s promise…a life lived in Him never ends….he lives and loves us still!

In lieu of flowers the family suggests memorial donations be directed to Gateway Hospice or the Belmond Hospital Auxiliary.
