Faye was born on May 10, 1921, in Humansville, Mo., to the late Charles T. and Minnie Matilda (Earnest) Akins. She was raised in the country and always appreciated the values that were instilled in her. On February 14, 1939, she was united in marriage to James Harold Gibb; they raised two children in the Blue Springs area. During the Vietnam War, Faye worked at the Lake City Ammunition Plant and was always very proud of her contributions. Faye made the best apple pie and peach cobbler; she loved entertaining and hosting family dinners. She also loved spending time with her family and friends playing Pitch and especially enjoyed riding the Bus to the casino to play the penny slots.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brothers, Homer, Ralph, Roy, A.J., Gearl, Charles Junior Akins; sisters, Opal Smith, Pearl Bates, Marie Nafus, Bonnie Gregg; and infant sister and brother, Beulah and Loyd Akins.

She leaves behind two children, Goldie "Sue" Gfeller and husband, Don, of Blue Springs, Mo., and James Lee Gibb and wife, Sara, of Blue Springs, Mo.; two grandchildren, Mike Gibb and wife, Maureen, and Ann Papasifakis; four great-grandchildren, Gavin, Gracelyn, Gwenyth Gibb and Rebekah Papasifakis; as well as many nieces, nephews and extended family members.
