Mom, Mama, Mama Faye, Grandma, Grandma Faye, Faye, Aunt Faye, or Mrs. Ragsdale, to so many, was born June 21, 1939 in Tampa, Florida. She had 7 kids, 13 grandkids, 2 great grandkids, 6 brothers and sisters, and a slew of nieces and nephews. She was an overcomer, a leader, a motivator, a teacher, a chef, a team mom, a coach, and those were just a few of the things she did for fun in the afternoons. Most of all she was a wife, mom, grandma, sister, aunt, and friend. Faye was a fighter and was only given a maximum of 3 months to live. After being diagnosed with cancer 15 months ago, she fought the good fight with a lot of grace and dignity. Our hearts are saddened with the loss of our wife and Mom on Sunday, January 27, 2019, but she met her Savior face to face, and for that we are thankful and comforted. If you were fortunate enough to know her, then you know what a special lady she was. She will be greatly missed.
She is survived by her husband of 48 years, Wayne, and her seven children; Diana(Dabney)Martin of Longwood, FL; Tom Gillett of New Port Richey; Jimmy(Gail)Gillett of Tarpon Springs; Anna(Jerry)Kindinis;Andy(Sylvia)Ragsdale;John Ragsdale of Tarpon Springs; and Allan(Ana) Ragsdale of Tarpon Springs.
