I just want to say it was a blessing to get to spend time with faye. She was an amazing woman. So full of conversation, love and compassion. She doted on her grandkids every chance we talked. She had a smile that would light a room and i am very grateful to have gotten to know her and spend time with her. To her family may god bring peace and light.

Aunt Faye was and is a wonderful person in my life to encourage me and our family! She is a prayer warrior that was always willing to pray for anyone that needed it! She had a genuine love that only her Lord Jesus Christ gave her!
She loved her family so much! She loved her church God blessed her with also! She is a gift I will never forget and it will be such a joy to
Join her and the Campbell Clan someday in heaven!

I was saddened to hear of Ms. Faye passing and my prayers are with you family. My first thought was what a sweet reunion took place when she made her way to the shore of Heaven. For many years she was one of the saints of God that I marked as an example to strive to emulate. Knowing all that this dear sister had endured yet glorified God , always was a testimony that God could give his children strength in our weakness, comfort in our distress, and hope when things seem hopeless!
She fought the fight, kept the faith and finished her course and I thank God to have known her.

Grandma always treated me like one of her own! She loved my boys the same way--in typical Grandma fashion, always bringing them treats to church! A true blessing straight from the throne full of faith, wisdom, and love! Forever in my heart! Miss her on my pew! We will see her again. . . .

Love and prayers from the Roberts,
Portia, John Davis, and Don Curtis
