Our beloved Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother, Katherine (Faye) Groat passed away on December 6, 2021, in St. Augustine, Fl at the age of 94. She was born on September 4, 1927, in Binghamton, NY to parents Cecil and Kathryn (White) Biggs. She worked at Woolworths for over 25 years. After retirement she volunteered at the First Ward Senior Center until she relocated to Florida in 2012. She enjoyed reading, crossword puzzles, playing scrabble, spending time with her family and basking in the Florida sun.

Faye was predeceased by her husband, William Groat, her daughter Susan Kerezman, son Gerald Manzer and daughter Sharon Manzer. Faye is survived by her daughter, Janice (Jon) Harris, her son Raymond (Ellen) Manzer; her Grandchildren Brad (Lori) Zagorsky, Cari (Steve) Semmelman, Danielle (Keith) Wallace, Jennifer (Vern) McGinnis, Jamie Kerezman, Art Bidlack; and her Great- Grandchildren Kiera and Alyssa Semmelman & Kaitlyn and Connor Wallace.

The Family will be having a Celebration of Life to honor her at a later date to be determined.

    Mom, I am holding on to all the wonderful memories we made together. The vacations, family dinners, campfires, and mostly all the help you gave me making items for Ray and my wedding. Thanks to a most loving caring kind person I have known. I would always say for the hard times that life gave you, you always got up with a smile and got thru the day. Strong person, but, oh so very kind. Love and will miss you.
