Mrs. Faye Golden Enslen, 95, of Jefferson City, Mo., passed away Monday, March 2, 2020 at home with family by her side.

She was born on April 29, 1924 in Hannibal Mo. the daughter of Rev. John W. Golden (“The Old Ridge Runner”) and Fay Sullivan Golden. She was married on November 7, 1963 in Kahoka, Mo. to Robert Gene Enslen with her brother, Rev. Richard S. Golden, presiding.

Faye was a 1942 graduate of Hannibal High School. She received her bachelors degree in education from Culver Stockton College and did graduate work at the University of Missouri-Columbia. She began her 40-year teaching career with Hannibal Public Schools and then taught in the Jefferson City Public Schools before taking time off to raise her children. She finished her career with over 20 years at St. Stanislaus Catholic School.

They had many adventures traveling all 50 states and even ventured into Mexico and Canada; Walt Disney World was a favorite destination. Faye was an avid St. Louis Cardinal fan and enjoyed sewing, embroidery and collecting.

Survivors include: her children, Gene Enslen of Jefferson City and Bobbi Enslen of Jefferson City; her furry companion, Snuggles; and many extended relatives and friends.

Faye, what can I say -- she was a dear friend and wonderful lady. She attended everything Rainbow!! Bobbi and Gene, I have never known any children that took such good care of their Mother -- you took her places, you cared for her needs and did all you could to give her a good life, especially in her older years! You know we will miss her and I can only feel your hurting, Our sympathy and prayers go out to you. God bless and our love. Floyd and Ruth Ann Brown
