She was a lovely lady! Even though I volunteered in the Resource Room thru Cancer GPS on Thursdays, I would periodically stop by to see the ladies who crocheted and knitted. These sweet women always welcomed me to come, sit, and chat. I never stayed long, yet I always felt the world was brighter when I left.
She will be missed by so many. Her legacy transcends beyond this world.

Aunt Faye was a wonderful person and was very loved by all who were fortunate enough to know her. She will live in the hearts of so many individuals. She is one person that embraced life and lived with joy in heart and did not mind sharing it with others.

Faye was such a lovely, sweet women. She was the first one to come to our house with a casserole when my Dad passed away. Her volunteer hours at the hospital were a blessing to many who needed assistance. She will be missed by many.

I remember Faye at Northwood being the most loving children's Sunday School Teacher. I am sure there is a special reward for Faye for telling so many children about Jesus. Faye will be missed.
