She was born on December 20, 1935 the daughter of the late Carl and Lucile (Gay) Stuckey. On August 22,1958 she married Carl (Cocky) W. Faurote.  Sunya passed away after spending her 62nd Wedding Anniversary with her husband and family by her side.

Sunya loved her family first and foremost and instilled those values, traditions and unconditional love in her children and grandchildren. She loved cooking dinner for the family every Sunday and always made enough for everyone to take some home. She was in the stands cheering loudly for all her children and grandchildren’s sporting events and was a big Bellmont Wrestling fan.

She is survived by her husband, Carl W.(Cocky) Faurote of Decatur; her 4 children and their spouses, Gary and Monica (Segall) Faurote of Carmel, Karla (Faurote) and Doug Hormann of Decatur, Brent (BJ) and Renee (Smelser) Faurote of Decatur, and Greta (Faurote) and John Lytle of Kokomo; 9 grandchildren and spouses, Dustin and Tara Hormann, Taylor and Candra Hormann, Carlin and Sherice Hormann, Hailee Hormann, Kaylee (Faurote) and Brent Weidemann, Brooks and Alexa Faurote, Justin, Elizabeth and Ethan Lytle;  and 5 great grandchildren, Breylan, Presley and Sutton Hormann, Beckham and McKenna Weidemann, and 2 more on the way. 

Sunya dedicated more than 25 years of her life as a paraprofessional at Bellmont Middle School and had volunteered at St. Joseph School for many years before that.  She was a parishioner of St. Mary of the Assumption Catholic Church and helped with the funeral dinners for numerous years. Sunya was a member of Tri Kappa Sorority for 66 years and a member of Decatur Woman’s Club for over 50 years.  

Sunya was well known for her baking abilities, especially at Christmas time, which many looked forward to each year.  Sunya was an avid reader and had her own personal library, that she loaned out to her family and friends.  She loved her daily walk, enjoyed attending Silver Sneakers and going to breakfast and lunch with her friends.
