Faye and I shared several conversations on growing flowers and exchanged some plants many years ago. She was a lovely person and we enjoyed each others company. Faye and I were PEO sisters. Blessings to her remaining family. Nancy Scott

Sending deepest respect for the passing of Faye. I met her on a few occasions. My mother Willa (Billie McCoy) Richmond spoke very highly of her. They were friends and lived near each other. My Mom passed away Thanksgiving at the age of 96. Mom would be happy I left a message for the family. Faye was a really sweet lady.
