Faye T. Chadwell
Faye T. Chadwell was called home to heaven all too soon on March 1, 2021, at Orange Park Medical Center, Orange Park, Florida.
Faye was born on December 30, 1953 in Chicago, Illinois to Jacqueline J. Miller and Walter J. Kukla.
Faye is a graduate of Tinley Park High School, class of 1971. Upon graduation, Faye entered the work force in banking. She also worked for Area 36 Special Olympics in Marquette, Michigan. Faye found her true calling in the hotel and restaurant industry and held various positions ranging from server to senior executive throughout her career.
Faye served as the Controller and then General Manager of Culver Cove Resort from 1993-1996. That was followed by stints at Holiday Inn Properties as a General Manager from 1996-1998. Faye shifted her focus to education and served as the Executive Director of the Indiana Hospitality and Tourism Foundation from 1998-2001. Her career then took her to Orlando, Florida where she served as the Senior Vice President of the Educational Institute of the American Hotel and Lodging Association from 2001-2011. Faye retired from the hospitality industry and next worked as a para professional in special education for Clay County Schools from 2013 until her passing. She worked at Fleming Island Elementary and Swimming Pen and finally at Paterson Elementary as the ESE Secretary.

She is preceded in death by her parents and brother Walter Kukla.
Faye had many passions in her life. She loved to travel and enjoyed cruising. Dancing and music were another outlet that made her smile! She also loved to watch her beloved Packers and Cubbies – a highlight being in 2016 when the Cubs won the World Series. She was very supportive and acted like a team mom to her husband’s numerous athletic teams over their ten-year marriage.
Faye will be laid to rest at the Jacksonville National Cemetery on a date that will be determined in the near future. The family is also going to have a celebration of life on a future date in Jacksonville, Florida and also in Indianapolis, Indiana. Please sign the family’s online guestbook at
