Later lifeEdit

Faith later married Jem and had three children with him: Walter Jr., Jem Jr., and Anne.

PersonalityEdit

"Faith Meredith is a beauty, and as inspiring and original as she is beautiful. There is nothing commonplace about her. All the other girls in the Glen put together haven't the vim, and wit, and joyousness and 'spunk' she has. She has not an enemy in the world. Every one who knows her loves her."
Anne Shirley about Faith.[src]

Faith was a merry, cordial girl. She loved to laugh and was not as sensitive as Una about the people who made fun of their family. She loved her father dearly and it hurt her terribly when he was hurt. She was kind, loving, and very joyful at all times.

Physical appearanceEdit

Rainbow Valley, Chapter 4
