Mrs. Pulley lived across the street from my grandparents in Springfield. I remember those summer visits and meeting her and Austin. They were such wonderful gracious people. When my grandmother Coats died, Faye looked after my grandfather. Our family stayed in touch and after my father (Allan Bosch) died a few years ago I had a long and emotional phone call with her. She was a wonderful woman and my family was blessed that she lived her Christian ideals and took such good care of all of us. Bless her and her family - prayers to you all.

My sweet memories of "Aunt Faye" were from the Pulley Reunions in Cabool. Aunt Faye loved the Hello Dolly bars. My friend Janet would make them for her. After Janet passed, I would make them and then Kathy Anderson. We knew she expected them! She was such a kind, sweet Christian lady. We know this is her time of joy and peace in Heaven. God Bless her family and friends. Psalm 29:11

From the moment I met Faye, she took me in as a beloved member of her family. She always made me feel welcome and even when she didn't feel well, she lifted my spirits with her passionate Love for Christ and others. I am grateful that God shared Faye with me, and I can smile knowing that she is with her heavenly father rejoicing in the Kingdom of God.

Since I was a kid, Faye has been a part of my life. She lived her life in spirit and truth and focused her life on serving the Father. She never doubted His way because it was her way. Faye was devoted to family and she counted many beyond her relations as family, including Becky and me. She was a beautiful wife and caring mother. I am thankful she had a long, impactful life full of joy, happiness and faith. Now she is with the Father showing that wonderful smile of hers around the Kingdom. A donation has been made in her memory to the Fair Haven Children's Home in Strafford, MO.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I known you for over 20 years. We shared so many talks, cries, laughter and lunches through these years. You’ve watched my three grandkids grow right along with me. You were my dear sweet friend and you knew you could call me anytime and I would be there for you. You finally made it home and I know you’re with Austin again. Rest peacefully Faye! I miss you already but I know your where you’ve wanted to be these last few months. We’ll see each other again, so save a seat for me, ok. Love you Dearly……..Carol
