Faith Arlene Hurst
Faith Arlene Hurst, age 74, of Shelby, went home to be with the Lord on Wednesday, February 10, 2021 at OhioHealth Shelby Hospital Emergency Department. Although her death was unexpected to us here on Earth, her faith in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ allows us to know she now rests in His presence.
Faith was born October 22, 1946 in Hocking County, Logan, Ohio to the late Ernest and Mary (Powell) Baker. She was well known as a driver for the Amish and Mennonite communities, a job she genuinely enjoyed and loved. For her family, she loved to make fudge and noodles, especially for the grandchildren. In her free time, she loved crocheting, reading books, and doing puzzles. Faith was a Christian woman who thoroughly enjoyed attending church and was a member of First Apostolic Church of Nankin.
Most importantly, Faith loved her family more than anything. Faith is survived by her husband of nearly 54 years, Ronald Lee Hurst, Sr., whom she wed on September 15,1967.
