Toone

Faye Brooks, born on August 6, 1944, in Alabama, peacefully passed away on November 21, 2023, in Jackson, Tennessee. She was surrounded by her loving family during her final moments. Faye dedicated her life to her family and will always be remembered for her loving nature.

Faye was a devoted member of the Big Springs Methodist Church and found solace in her faith. She worked as a supervisor at Masterslack for over 30 years, showcasing not only her dedication but also her strong work ethic. In addition to her professional accomplishments, Faye embraced the role of a homemaker, creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere for her family.

One of Faye's greatest passions was gardening. She had an innate green thumb and took great pride in tending to her flowers. Seeing the beauty she cultivated brought immense joy to her heart. Faye also enjoyed visiting yard sales, where she found pleasure in discovering unique treasures and bargains. However, above all else, Faye's family held the most significant place in her heart.

Faye is survived by her daughter, Shelia Duncan Dean of Lexington; a half brother, Dalton Thrasher of Alabama; three grandchildren who meant the world to her, Dennis Duncan, Jr. of Lexington, Casey Duncan Rivers (Gregory) of Parsons and Matthew James Maness of Middleton; and 10 great grandchildren.  Not to be forgotten is Faye's loyal companion "Lil Bit," who stood faithfully by her side until the very end. "Lil Bit" brought comfort and companionship to Faye during her final years, and their bond was unbreakable.

Faye is preceded in death by her father, James Arthur Thrasher and mother, Ruth Mae Franks Thrasher, her beloved husband, Martin Brooks, her daughter, Betty Jean Maness and siblings, Troy Thrasher and Mae Jean Jackson.

Faye Brooks will forever remain in the hearts of those who had the privilege of knowing her. Her loving spirit and unwavering dedication to her family have left an indelible mark on all who were fortunate enough to know her. She will be deeply missed but never forgotten.
