Faye Avis (Yeaman) Hooper Obituary

Faye Avis Yeaman Parnell Hooper peacefully passed away on July 4, 2018, surrounded by her loving family.

She was born Faye Avis Yeaman, October 12, 1917, in Osborn, Missouri, to Bruce and Martha (Lambert) Yeaman. Her childhood years were spent in Nebraska, and the Kansas City, Missouri area.

She is preceded in death by her first husband, Donald Wayne Parnell, second husband, William Clyde Hooper, four brothers, one sister, and loving son-in-law, Thomas Eugene Connors.

Faye married Don Parnell and together they raised five children. Their union was a true love affair of 48 years, ending after Don lost his long battle with cancer. She later married Bill Hooper, who had lost his spouse, again becoming a widow in 2007.

Around the age of 10, Faye became a Christian and started writing poetry. She expressed her feelings of faith, happiness, and sorrow with her words. She continued to write poetry well into her 90's. She shared her art of words with family and friends and wrote of their pain and glee. Her entire life was dedicated to her unconditional love for others and unrelenting faith in God. She always encouraged others with compassion, honesty, and a loving heart. On the day Faye went to be with her lord and savior, she had a poetry book published "Many Memories". Her collection of poetry is a gift to be shared by all.

As she approached her 100th birthday, she attributed her longevity to her faith, her love for all, healing of laughter, a healthy lifestyle, and of course, that cup of tea. The door to her heart and home always were open. Never judging, yet always encouraging others with compassion, honesty, and a loving spirit. Faye desired never to miss an opportunity to spread the word of God so others could reap the benefits of a life with the Lord.

She is survived by her children, Donna (Tom-deceased) Connors, Nancy (Mike) Morris, Joy (Larry) Bellington, Fred (Ruth) Yeaman, and Steve (Cindy) Parnell. She was adored by her 10 grandchildren, 21 great-grandchildren, and 6 great-great grandchildren.

As her family grieves, they will cherish each other and remember the lessons Faye taught them. Her legacy of love is a gift she left for all.

Visitation will be from 1 to 2 p.m. Thursday, July 12, followed by a funeral service at 2 p.m., at Meyers Funeral Chapel, 1600 W. Main, Blue Springs; 816-229-3276. Burial will follow at Floral Hills Cemetery, Raytown, Mo.

The family suggests that the memorial contributions be made to the Calvary Baptist Church in Odessa, Mo.
