Faye was such a fine lady. She was so kind to me when we all went to Trinity Baptist Church. We were all so young!
She will be remembered as a kind, generous, witty lady with a big heart.
My sincere condolences to her family

So sorry to hear of Faye's passing . She was a dear friend to my mom and I have many fond memories of her myself. Swimming in her pool in Odessa, trip to her house in Kilgore and the many, many perms! They were always better than salon ones! She even helped host a wedding shower for me as well. Much love and prayers to the family!
