Faye, a very special person, did not know a stranger, especially the children she met. Many of the young people that knew her, called her "mom", she would help them any way she could. She started driving a school bus for Sheridan Schools to be with her 3 boys as much as possible; not only driving daily, she drove the band on trips to be with the one's she called her children. She enjoyed and participated in all the activities her sons enjoyed, camping at many of the Arkansas lakes, roller skating at willow springs skating rink, racing cars, to name a few. Faye volunteered with the East End Fire Department where she became a firefighter/EMT and worked her way to the rank of Captain.
