Faye was born ''Faye Ellen Meyer'' on August 15th, 1935 in Wisner, Nebraska. Faye was the middle child of three to parents Arthur and Lucy 'Juhl' Meyer. After graduating Wisner High School in 1953 Faye worked in Omaha at Mutual of Omaha for several years. After meeting and marrying Arlen Wedergren in 1961 the couple moved to California in 1962. While in California, son Kevin was born in 1967. In 1970 Faye and her family returned to Nebraska to reside in Arlen's hometown of Uehling. Arlen and Faye made Uehling their home until 2006 when they moved to Omaha and later to Fremont.

Faye was an active member of the American Legion Women's Auxiliary. Faye and her family were also active members of the Uehling Congregational Church. While in Uehling Faye was the school lunch manager at the Uehling Public School. In her time of over 24 years at the school, she gained a reputation of providing high quality lunches to all Uehling students that passed through. Faye very much enjoyed reading and playing games.
