Tessie “Faye” Faye Coleman Waters, 81, of the Persimmon community, was called home to be with the Lord on Friday, Feb. 7, 2014.

Faye was born Oct. 8, 1932, in Rabun County and lived her entire life here. She worked for many years at Empire Manufacturing Company, was a homemaker and a devout member of Clayton Church of God.

She also was preceded in death by a brother, Floyd Coleman, and a sister, Bennice Coleman English, both formerly of Clayton.

Funeral services were held Sunday at Clayton Church of God with the Revs. Bryan Alexander and James Pendrey officiating. Our precious Aunt Faye was laid in her final resting place at the Persimmon Community Cemetery.
