Her father, John Graves, was a real estate broker and developer in the Historic Crenshaw community. Her mother, Muriel Avery Graves, worked as an administrator for the federal government until she retired from the Department of the Treasury as the director of personnel.

They relocated in 1983 to Pasadena, in the Los Angeles, Calif., area. Faye worked in marketing for Parsons Corporation. After the birth of their twin sons, Harold and John, and a move to the L.A. suburb of Claremont, she returned to work, first at the Girl Scouts of America then in the financial aid office of Pomona College. In 1990, the family moved to San Francisco Bay area and Faye became a full-time mother, devoted to Harold and John, and supported their interest in hunter/jumping equestrian events and competitive figure roller skating. She was the consummate organizer and hands-on supporter. Between school, lessons and competitions, she devoted untold hours and drove thousands of miles to help the boys achieve regional and national championships. In 1994, the family relocated to Southlake. Faye continued her support of the education and significant interest of her boys. She also became an avid and savvy collector of rare books and antiques. For the past five years Faye had been active member of the fellowship of Grapevine Church of Christ and especially its Bible study and community outreach efforts.
