You are in our thoughts and prayers. Faye was a dear sister in Christ who loved God, her family and her church. Her beautiful alto voice will be sorely missed in the choir at First Baptist Church of Chocowinity. She was a big part of so many things at church and she leaves huge footprints to fill. We loved Faye and will miss her so much, but we are assured that we will see her again one day.
We will be praying that all of the family will be comforted by our Lord's peace that passes all understanding.
