Ali Maria Fausnaught, 19, Brownstown

BROWNSTOWN — Ali Maria Fausnaught, 19, of Brownstown, passed away unexpectedly in Philadelphia, on Wednesday, April 17, 2013.

She was born in Lancaster, on Sept. 16, 1993, and was a loving daughter of Donald I. D.M.D. and Tara (Ruoff) Fausnaught and amazing sister to Zachary Fausnaught. She was truly the spirit of the family.

Ali graduated from Conestoga Valley High School in 2012, was a star on the Conestoga Valley tennis team, an officer for the Future Business Leaders Association (FBLA), a member of the Interact Club, a CV Scholar Athlete and a member of the homecoming court.

She attended The University of South Carolina and was on the Dean’s List. She was a current student at West Chester University. At West Chester, Ali was an aspiring speech pathologist and a psychology major.

She grew up attending Zion Lutheran Church of Leola and was a volunteer at Corner of Hope, the church’s clothing bank in Leola.

Ali was so full of life. She was social and vibrant, and known for her contagious laugh. She loved hanging with her family and friends, shopping, visiting the beach, baking, eating ice cream, and was known as a “foodie.” Her smile will be unforgettable.

Ali’s favorite Bible verse was Joshua 1:9 “Be strong and courageous, do not be terrified, do not be discouraged; for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”


Surviving, in addition to her parents and brother, are loving maternal grandparents, Maria, wife of David Ruoff, of Wyomissing, paternal grandmother, Mildred Fausnaught, of Danville, and a host of loving aunts, uncles, cousins and her boyfriend.
