I am so sorry for your loss. I remember Faye as a fixture for me in Stoy. She was my Grandparents neighbor before we moved across the street, so I have known her all my life. I was thankful when she would drive my mother to Home Ext. She was good to my folks by watering the flowers and taking care of the house when they were in FL those many years. I know she will be missed by her family, but also by her long time friends and acquaintances. I was glad to have known her.
