Obituaries » Faye L. Riley

Faye L. Riley, 83, of Marshall, the beloved wife of the late Billy W. Riley, slipped away on May 23, 2021.

The couple met at a roller rink in Alexandria when Bill accidentally ran into and knocked her down! Needless to say, Faye was not interested in the clumsy boy at the time. Several years later, Bill was on leave at age 19 from the Navy when his path once again crossed Faye’s, who was then 16. This time, they were introduced by family. They fell in love and married!

Faye was a homemaker, caring for their three children, while also being involved in Bill’s construction company. Faye was a wonderful cook, seamstress and crocheter, who also loved needlepoint. She also loved reading and was an avid gardener. She had a greenhouse that Bill constructed for her, where she raised beautiful African violets.

Faye loved socializing with family and especially loved small children. She was active in the Westwood Baptist Church with Bill, teaching Sunday school and working in the nursery. Faye really enjoyed movies and loved to play games of any kind with her very quick wit and uplifting sense of humor.

She was a steadfast and loyal partner to Bill, who died in 1997, and her family, who will deeply miss her. She was also preceded in death by her son Billy and daughter Tina.

A funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. Tuesday June 1, at Westwood Baptist Church, 8200 Old Keene Mill Road in Springfield, with Dr. Robert Whitten officiating. The family will receive friends from 10:30 a.m. until the start of the service. Burial will take place in Fairfax Memorial Park at 1:30 p.m.
