Alma Faye Teague (Nano) passed away on Saturday, November 16 at 10:05AM in Griffin, GA. She was born December 1, 1936 in Newnan, GA.
Faye lived in Fayetteville, moving there from College Park in the mid 1980s. She was one of four, growing up with one sister and two brothers. She worked at Arrow Shirt Company, starting as a secretary and moving her way up in the company over her 30 year tenure. After retirement, fitness became her passion and she spent many years teaching classes. She spent the remainder of her years putting all of her energy into God, her grandchildren, and her great-grandchildren. She is survived by her daughter, Debra Barnes and her son, Alvin Harris. She has been reunited with her son, Jeffrey Harris, who passed in 2004. She is also survived by two granddaughters, Julie Tonnis and Staci Hamilton, and four grandsons, Justin Barnes, Jeffrey Harris Jr, Carl Harris, and Ben Harris. Faye has eleven great-grandchildren, who were all blessed to have known her, and each one had a personal relationship with her.
Faye’s life was marked by her strong faith in God and family. She believed in the strength of family and built a long genealogy of children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren that all loved, admired, and were influenced by her. Her favorite moments included when her family was all together, celebrating life, love, and food! She loved to cook and bring her family together as often as possible. Her happiest moments were when her great-grandchildren brought joy, laughter, and chaos into her house. She could be found at every game, every concert, every function for her great-grandchildren, and she loved to babysit and spend hours outside with them.
Faye’s legacy is her family. We will always remember her for her dedication to God, her love of family, and her feisty, independent nature. We will never forget her influential strength. That strength will live on in each of us, and we will pass it down to all future generations that come from Faye Teague! What an extraordinary, one of a kind woman!
