Faulkner, Merlyne - Charlotte  
Merlyne M. Faulkner 4/8/1927 - 4/16/2015 CHARLOTTE - Merlyne M. Faulkner, age 88, of Dunedin, FL, has passed away peacefully at home on April 16, 2015, to join her husband, Paul Eugene Faulkner, Sr. and her son, Paul Eugene Faulkner, Jr. She was born April 8, 1927 in Charlotte, NC to James Edward and Katherine Sylvia Marks. Survivors include: her daughter Jayne (Dan) Haumschild of Dunedin, FL, son Donald (Marsha) Faulkner of Seffner, FL, son Ray (Maribeth) Faulkner of Old Town, FL, and "fiftyleven" grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Merlyne was a proud and strong military wife, mother, and grandmother. Currently she has two grandsons (Lynell and Brandon) serving overseas. Merlyne was able to touch many lives with love by simply being herself. Her door remained open to everyone and no one was a stranger. Her smile was the brightest when she was cooking for a large crowd or tending to her African Violets. Her words of love reached way beyond just family. Merlyne had the ability to "be on you like a chicken on a junebug" and dry your tears at the same time. She was the right to all wrongs and our favorite sweet tea. Always a kiss three times and the reminder that "All you've got in this old world is your name." Forgiveness and acceptance she was but, mostly an inspiration to us all. Merlyne/ mom/grandma/boo/granny you are flying with your Cardinal again. Words of comfort may be expressed at Loylessfuneral home.com Loyless Funeral Home, 813-996-6610.
