Faye Wiggins Varnell

August 26, 1942 ~ August 11, 2022 (age 79)


Red Oak - 

Faye Wiggins Varnell was completely healed and welcomed into the arms of her heavenly Father on Thursday, August 11, 2022. She was born in Edgecombe County on August 26, 1942 to Roy and Nettie Adams Wiggins. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her former husband and best friend, Paul Varnell; and brothers, Jack, Alton, and Jesse Wiggins. 

She leaves a lifetime of treasured memories to her daughters, Charlotte V. Beck and Paula V. Walker (Tim) of Rocky Mount; brothers, Leroy Wiggins of Franklin, TN and Marvin Wiggins of Winterville; sisters, Louise Chauncey of Elizabeth City, Laura Smith of Pinetops, Joyce Wiggins of Grimesland, Doris Tyer (Billy) of Washington, and Jean Mills (Ted) of Winterville; sister-in-law, Charlotte Wiggins of Raleigh. She was especially proud of and loved her grandsons, Christopher and Brandon Walker; granddaughter, Megan Beck Williams (Colby); great-granddaughters, Kadence Williams and Ava Walker; and numerous nieces and nephews. 

Faye retired at age 55 after 28 years of service as a training instructor with Abbott Labs. She wanted to spend more time with her family, especially her grandchildren whom she adored. She was an excellent cook and enjoyed preparing various dishes for family gatherings. One of her specialties was chicken and pastry, just ask her grandchildren.

She had a servant’s heart and was happy to help anyone in need. She loved spending time with her family and her loyal fur baby, Renegade. She also enjoyed reading, maintaining her yard and flowers, and planning and organizing projects for herself and other family members. She was very energetic and always on the go. Faye will be dearly missed by all who knew her.

A graveside service will be held on Sunday, August 14, 2022 at the Varnell Family Cemetery, Hwy 124 West, Macclesfield, NC 27852 at 4:00PM. The family will receive friends immediately following the service.
