Everyone who knew Ella Faye knew she was a devoted and proud “Granny.” She loved watching her grandchildren and great-grandchildren in all they did and was their best cheerleader.
She was quick witted and loved to laugh. She enjoyed gardening, canning, eating popcorn, watching baseball and old western TV shows and she loved the Razorbacks. She was an excellent gardener and was especially proud of her plants, naming each after someone she loved.
She requested that her funeral not be sad, but a celebration. Her celebration of life will be 11 a.m. Wednesday at Roller-Farmers Union Funeral Home, 1900 W. Washington Ave., Jonesboro, with Robbie Cline officiating.
Burial will follow at Trinity Cemetery in Bono. Lester Wilson, Mickey Dement, James Perkins, Sam Barnes, Ross Tate and Shawn Lancaster will serve as pallbearers.
