Johnnie Fay (Faye) Hopkins Buckner, 87, of Ceres, California, went to be with the Lord on January 6, 2020 at the Alexander Cohen Hospice House in Hughson, California. She was born on February 11, 1932 in Voca, Texas, the 5th of 9 children of John and Julia Webb Hopkins. Her family moved to California in 1945. Since 1965, she and her husband Dallas lived on their family farm that they built in Ceres, California.

Her life was a living example of the Bible verse, 1 Peter 3:4: "You should be known for the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God."

She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Dallas W. Buckner and her son, James R. Buckner, Sr. (Beverly) and is survived by her children Dorothy Miller (Gary) of Modesto, CA; Jack C. Buckner (Jacquelyn) of Tulare, CA; and Steve W. Buckner, Sr. (Debbie) of Ceres, CA; her siblings Morris Hopkins of Selma, CA; Charles Hopkins of Livermore, CA; Marie Mefford of Modesto, CA; 13 grandchildren and 25 great-grandchildren.

Aunt Faye was my all time favourite Aunt of my mothers family. As a child I spent a lot time with their family - which I carry fond memories of my days with Aunt Faye and my cousins. RIP and you are free of the pain you suffered with for many years and remained such a strong woman. Love Tina
