    Read this on Facebook. This lady lived next door to me growing up with her then husband Carl Jones,Brent Jones and and a younger sister. She also had 2 children from a previous marriage Mike and Mark Joyce. She was a very nice and pleasant lady. Funny how you remember things from your youth. She was friends with my mom. She was always smiling and laughing… A very pretty lady back in the day…prayers to her remaining family.

    My condolences to Mark, Brent and the rest of the family. I just learned of Mrs. Faye’s passing after returning from a wedding out of town. I guess I knew Mrs. Faye since about 2nd grade when Mark and I were classmates and she always seemed to be a very gracious lady and she surely was a great addition to Mr. Leo’s life. Again, Mark and Brent, my thoughts and prayers are with you, my friends.
