JEFFERSON – Mrs. Edith Faye Timmons Curlee, 73, of Jefferson, passed away on Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2018, at Novant Health Presbyterian Medical Center, with her family by her side.
Faye was born on Aug. 9, 1945, in Pageland, to the late Joseph Roscoe Timmons and Lillie Mae Mills Timmons.
Faye Curlee was a beloved wife, mother, meemaw, sister and friend for life. She was loved by so many and will be missed in this life. She never met a stranger, and when you met her you never forgot her. She had such a giving and generous heart. Faye loved the Lord, who she honored and served with all of her heart, all the days of her life. She believed that the Lord came first, and her family and friends, who were more like family than friends, came second. Faye was strong in her faith and prayed fervently that her family would follow His will for their lives. She always tried her best to stay faithful to the Lord and the plans He had for her life. She was truly a Proverbs 31 woman and was so humble in all she did. Faye was a woman of her word and she was always there for you, even if you didn't need her to be. She loved to cook and collect nutcrackers, but more importantly, she loved spending time with her family. Faye loved her husband and her children more than anything in this life, but her grandchildren were truly the "apples of her eye" and she loved them more than life.
In addition to her parents, Faye was preceded in death by brothers, Joe Timmons and Charlie Timmons; sister, Louise McCray; brother-in-laws, Honey Rollings and Tommy McCray; and sister-in-law, Doris Timmons.
Those left to celebrate and remember her life include her loving husband and dearest friend of 55 years, Billy Curlee of Jefferson; sons, Joey Curlee and David Curlee (Jodie) both of Jefferson; daughter, Kimberly Curlee Griffin (Ricky) of Jefferson; brother, Carroll W. Timmons (Jane) of Glen Burnie, Md.; sister, Martha Rollings of Jefferson; sister-in-law, Mary Lois Timmons, of Pageland; sister-in-laws and brother-in-laws, Shirley and Rudolph Benton, and Harry and Cora Curlee; special aunt, Edith Hathcock, and uncle, Bob, of Florence; six grandchildren, Logan Griffin (Katelyn), Evan Griffin (Courtney), Taryn Griffin and boyfriend, Jackson Gurley, Jonathan Griffin, Mason Horne and Annah Horne; and numerous nieces and nephews.
The family received friends prior to the service, from 1:30-3 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 17, in the sanctuary of First Baptist Church of Pageland, 203 W. Pigg Street, Pageland.
