Faye was raised in Jacksonville and attended Kirby Smith Junior High and Andrew Jackson High School and was a majorette with the marching band throughout high school. Faye moved to Ponte Vedra Beach in 1980 and considered this her home. She loved the beach and everything about it. Faye loved to travel, whether it be a cruise to the Caribbean, a flight to Bermuda or following the Florida Gator football team all around the southeast in her RV. She loved to be on the go.
Faye was a former UF Florida Scholarship Partner/ Booster for 15 years and NEVER missed a game, a past member of the Jacksonville Gator Booster Club and an Auxiliary Member of the American Legion Post #129 in Jacksonville Beach. Faye had many friends from high school and enjoyed their monthly luncheons, she loved the ocean, the Florida Gators, dancing, shopping, but most of all she loved spending time with her family.
