Annie Faye was a great cook; from homemade biscuits, homemade dressing, to homemade cakes and a little in between. There have been many people wanting her sweet potato pies and her dressing, even offering to buy them from her. These are recipes that some go back five generations, from mothers to daughters and a few sons. Annie Faye loved the holidays. She would stay up all night cooking and have her table set with all the food and trimmings for everyone to enjoy, including the best sweet tea.
Annie Faye was a great mother and grandmother. She loved keeping her grandchildren and going places and doing things with them. She enjoyed taking them with her and Danny to Arkansas and riding the duck boats. As her grandchild Michelle said, “She would try to teach us how to do the-two step in the living room and she loved 50’s music. In fact, at one family reunion, her son Michael had the trunk of his car open with big speakers and music playing. Annie Faye and one of her sisters were dancing so hard doing the twist, that they got too close, and both fell into the trunk!” Annie Faye would always stop what she was doing, at the drop of a hat, to fix her grandchildren (or anyone for that matter), something to eat.
Annie Faye was very smart. Often times, you could walk in and find her doing word puzzles. She would make her grandchildren do schoolwork during the summer. She was also very funny, and sometimes she would get scared-excited. One day, one of her grandchildren had an accident and was bleeding pretty bad from the knee. Annie Faye came running out of the house with phone book in one hand and phone in the other hollering “What’s the number to 911?
Annie Faye was well loved and will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.
