She moved to Muskogee, Okla., in 1995 to be near her family. Faye lived independently and enjoyed working in her yard until three years ago, when she became a resident at Magnolia Gardens Living Center.

The family would like to express their deep appreciation to Magnolia Gardens, Solara and Good Shepherd Hospice for their attentive and loving care of their mother and grandmother and to First Baptist Church staff, church family and many friends for their love and prayers shown to the family during this difficult time.
The family has entrusted Bradley Family Funeral Service with the arrangements.
