Obituary for Faye “Granny” Hall

Faye Hall, age 79 died Saturday, February 8, 2020. She was born in Springfield, Tennessee to J.C. and Cecil Morris on November 4, 1940. Known to everyone as “Granny Hall”, her family was her life.

The most beloved dishes were her chicken and dumplins, fried chicken, goulash, banana pudding and her world famous fried apple pies. (Sorry but there are no written recipes so no need to ask) Her homemade biscuits will never be duplicated. She attempted to teach everyone in the family how to make them but it can’t be done. Faye loved westerns (especially the old ones in black and white), The Lone Ranger, John Wayne and Clint Eastwood, anything on the National Geographic channel or the Hallmark Channel. At Christmas when the family was together, she loved watching everyone say the lines to Christmas Vacation while watching the movie. She also loved to sew, loved flowers and gardening, birds (especially red birds) and staying at home because she never wanted to miss someone coming for a visit. Her favorite color is purple.

She is survived by 4 children; Carolyn (Brad) LaMontagne, Ricky (Susan) Hall, Betsy (Mike) Hollingsworth, and Jay (Sherry) Hall; a brother, Alford Morris and 2 sisters, Johnnie Hand and Abbiegail Jackson; 6 grandchildren, Shayna (Jonathan) Liebengood, Landon (Kaitlyn) Scott, Amy (David) Ingram, Matt (Kortnee) Hall, Sam Hall (Morgan)and Victoria Hollingsworth; 5 great-grandchildren, Hallie Liebengood, Rex Liebengood, Talan Ingram, Miles Ingram and Atley Kate Hall, and many nieces and nephews

Betty Jeanne Kemp, age 86, passed away on February 1, 2020 at her home in Hendersonville, TN.
