Fae was born on July 28, 1925 in Clintonville as the daughter of the late Henry and Martha (Nemmetz) Hedtke. As a 1st Grader at St. Martin Lutheran School, Fae received a valentine from her classmate and future husband. She still had the valentine on the day she passed away. Fae Hedtke and Willard “Spud” Sasse were united in marriage on September 21, 1946 at St. Martin. Fae was a faithful member at St. Martin where she was active with the Ladies Aid, Trust Fund, Choir, and Shepherding Committee. She worked for the Clintonville School District as a secretary in the Superintendent’s office for 23 years. Fae and Willard raised their 3 children and enjoyed spending time together at their cabin on Roberts Lake near Wabeno. Fae enjoyed gardening, singing with the group for the Hedtke family gatherings, watching Brewer games, birdwatching, and loved going fishing with Willard on the Clintonville Pond and Roberts Lake.
