Arrangements for Evelyn Faye Holmes

Creation smiled on April 23, 1940 at the birth of Evelyn Faye Holmes to the late Mr. & Mrs. Hurit Hilliard. Her parents rejoiced with this newborn addition to their family.

Faye was educated in Robertson County Schools attending Krisle Elementary School and graduating in 1958 from Bransford High School. As Faye endeavored to receive her education, she was introduced to Phillip Nathaniel Holmes. The two became an inseparable couple at Bransford, Faye cheered the football team since Phillip was a noted player. Their romance was finally solidified as their marriage vows was publicly announced in June 1958. They were now a young couple on the adventurous path of life. Phillip had chosen road construction as his career while Faye chose a course in the business arena. Faye was employed by Southern Hills and Kroger. In 2003, she changed employment to Rena’s Boutique.

The newly happy couple suffered a terrible loss in 1964 when Kenneth died leaving a void in the family. Phil and Faye decided to wrap their daughter with a double portion of love with the loss of their son. Faye’s greatest losses were the death of her dear husband, Phillip, in 1999 and her beloved daughter, Kimberly, in 2019. Their deaths were the black hole of her heart. Faye loved her family, and they were always sharing a meal or a family gathering with various members.

She was a member of the Sunday School Teacher and Usher Board at First Baptist Church, and her club, The Pace Setters. She was highly respected by the members of her church.

Faye was a devoted football fan. Her favorite team was The Green Bay Packers. She felt that no other team could match them! Her movie and television interest always included the westerns. She felt she could have lived during those times. Faye loved living in Springfield, Tennessee because the people and the town itself enjoyed her.
