The family would like to thank the many friends and family who have supported Faye over the years, especially Carol and Bobby Roop.
Faye enjoyed being with her family, sitting on the porch, reminiscing, and cooking for anyone who visited her home. She was “mom” for her nieces and nephews who had lost their mothers.

She had taught Sunday School, VBS, had been in charge of the meal ministry, and was in charge of the card ministry for years.
