    I was out of town when Faye passed away, but she was such a joy to be around when I would see her while I was teaching. So sorry for your great loss. Thoughts and prayers for your family in the days ahead. Wanda Williams

    From the time we were our children’s “room mothers” to listening to each other about our grandchildren, Faye was my friend. She was one of the most lovely, good hearted and gracious ladies I’ve ever met. All that knew her will continue to cherish their memories of her. Our thoughts and prayers will continue for her family.

    I graduated with Faye. We messaged each other talking about recent books we had read. I last her from her on 11/26/22 telling me about a Navy Seal book she was reading. I ordered book and it has not come. I will so miss her discussing our books. She was a precious lady. RIP Faye

    I have known and loved Faye for many years since my children were in Eighth District School. Faye and I both love reading and would share this love whenever we met. She had a delightful laugh and was a joy to be around. She will be so missed and her memory treasured. My prayers to all the family.

    Mr Timberman I don’t think I ever met you but I am Faye’s cousin from Huntsville Alabama. Our families visited when we were children and when I was a teenager I would come to Scott and Johnnie Maude’s to hunt squirrels and always had such fond memories of those visits. I cannot make it to the funeral but I will be praying for you you and your family and hope to be in contact soon

    I have many fond memories of Ms. Faye at Mulberry school and visiting my Aunt Jean Williams’s house (who was her neighbor) and coming to her Christmas luncheons. She was a wonderfully understanding person and a great conversationalist. Her family should be quite proud of who she was to so many.

    May God’s peace be with you all.

    Words cannot Express how sorry we are for your loss. Faye has been my friend since our sons Brian and Michael were best friends beginning in 2nd grade. She loved my mother’s candy and mama made sure she got some. You will be in our prayers. May God bless all of you during your grief.

    Oh Faye, I just can’t believe you are gone. So glad our paths crossed at the Sr. Center Exercise class. So glad I had the priviledge and honor of quilting your log cabin quilt. I enjoyed bumping into you at Walmart from time to time too. Prayers for your family. Cordelia Tanner

    As a young school secretary at Boonshill School in the early 1980’s, Faye was so very helpful to me whenever I called her for help with anything school related. Even after all these years, whenever we saw each other, we always stopped to chat and think back on those days. She was a wonderful lady and I’m proud I was privileged to know and work with her. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you in the days and weeks ahead.
