Obituary-Faith Brayton

Faith Catherine Brayton, 29, of Glasco, Kansas passed away on Wednesday, October 11, 2023, at Wesley Medical Center in Wichita, Kansas. She was born on August 27, 1994, at home in rural Minneapolis to James and Penny Peters. 

She met her future husband, Grady, in the third grade and they later became high school sweethearts. They married on January 19, 2019, at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church in Concordia, Kansas. 

Faith worked at the locker plant, and for a vet supply company before she started the job she loved most as a stay at home mom to her son Monty when he was born on February 18, 2021.

She cared for goats, chickens, had a garden, and loved creating things for her home. Her love of goats started when she and her sisters were gifted goats as small children. She turned it into a business, selling goat’s milk and making goat cheese. Faith could get animals to do things that most people couldn’t. She had a knack for catching bullfrogs and wild kittens.  She wasn’t scared of anything, and it was a regular sight to see her come out of the chicken coop with a snake casually wrapped around her arm. She was routinely given animals that others did not know how to care for. 

Faith had a heart of gold that was seen by the people around her and the animals she cared for. She was tough as nails. She was stepped on by a cow at the age of 2 and broke her neck falling from a buggy at age 17. She fought a hard but short battle after a Stage 4 Ovarian Cancer diagnosis on September 13, 2023.

Faith’s memory will be cherished by her husband, Grady Brayton; her son, Monty Brayton; her parents James (Donna) Peters, and Penny (Chris) Bell; her siblings, Aaron (Buffy) Peters, Brian (Ashton) Peters, Emily (Brian) Koster, Dewayne (Lauren) Hartzell, Cory (Torey) Peters, and Grace Peters; her many adored nieces and nephews, and numerous other family and loved ones. 

She was preceded in death by her sister-in-law Carrie Brayton, and her grandparents.  

Mass of Christian Burial will take place at Glasco High School in Glasco, Kansas at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 21, 2023. Burial will follow at Glasco City Cemetery, Glasco, Kansas. Visitation will be from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. before the service on October 21, 2023.
