    Faye was a very dear friend for a short time, she will be missed. What I will remember most about Faye is her cute little giggle and her strong simple faith. May all of her family find peace in the fact she is with Jesus, she knew Him intimately.

    I worked with Faye, who I knew as Margaret, at the home of a local MD. She was so wonderful! She was reliable and honest and loving and sweet and always supportive of every person with whom I saw her interact. She was like the energizer bunny sometimes. I hope she didn’t suffer. I know she has been welcomed in heaven and she will grace the place with her presence! Bless her sweet, sweet heart. And I am so sorry for the loss the family must be experiencing. She is at rest. I wish you all peace too.

    I have good memories of Faye, including a trip with her, Edith & Mother (Lilla Mae Queen) over the pass to visit Mary & Whitey Mefford, with fun stops along the way. There will be a grand reunion day!
