Faye (Mathews) NicholsJanuary 24, 1944 ~ June 1, 2017 (age 73)
Mrs. Faye went to be with our Lord and Savior on June 1, 2017, surrounded by her loving family.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Zadie Hollis Mathews and Joseph Cicero Mathews; brother, JD Mathews; and 3 infant siblings.
Faye is survived by her loving husband and best friend of 54 years, Charles Mitchell “Mitch” Nichols; son, Mitchell “Anthony” Nichols (Anne); daughter, Lisa Faye Reynolds (Jay); grandsons, Christopher Ian Guthrie (Frances), William “Mitchell” Nichols, Cody Noah and Jarrett Giddens; and several beloved nieces, nephews, and cousins as well as many other family members and friends.
Special thanks to her nephew James “Roger” Nichols and first cousin Betty Thurston for all their assistance to the immediate family during this time. Thank you to her pallbearers as well. Faye’s favorite things to do were to feed and watch birds, watch her son’s race horses run, and play challenging word and trivia games. She earned her Master's of Language Arts degree and held a 4.0 for 4 years in college. She was a homemaker, Girl Scout Leader, typed a local newspaper column, and was the caregiver for her precious mother for several years. But her most cherished time was spent with her family and friends, especially her children and grandchildren, who will miss her gentle and loving spirit immensely.
Services will be held at Crestview Memorial Funeral Home with visitation Saturday, June 3, 2017 with family receiving friends from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. and funeral on Sunday, June 4, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. Burial to follow in Crestview Memorial Gardens.
