She was the second oldest of 8 children, her siblings include: 6 brothers; Alvin Jr., Carl, Larry, Bennie, Jackie, Marcus, and 1 sister, Marsenia. Faye accepted her Lord and Savior at an early age and was baptized at The Loving Mt. Calvary Baptist Church in Muskogee, OK. She attended Douglas and Sadler Elementary and graduated from Manual Training High School with the Class of 1957. She went on to study and graduated from Draughon’s Business College in 1959. She furthered her education by obtaining a certification in secretarial science and computer science. In 1973 she attended real estate school, where she studied sales and brokerage. Faye’s work history spans from 1960 to 2020. She always referred to herself as the “Jack of all trades” as she worked in many different fields. She worked at John Deere while in Iowa and worked at Boeing/Rockwell in Tulsa where she retired. Later, she owned a janitorial service that served commercial businesses as well as residential occupancies. With the janitorial service, she was able to employ her grandchildren and lead by example with her strong work ethic. There was always a lesson in every conversation. She had a drive within her to always excel and move forward.
Faye met Jeff Henry Bruce in Taft, OK and by 1960, they were wed and moved to Des Moines, Iowa along with her brother Alvin and his wife Wyvette. While in Iowa, she gave birth to 2 daughters and 1 son: Nanette, Jeff Jr., and Natasha. It was during her time in Iowa that many of the family’s traditions were started. Christmas was her favorite holiday. She cheerfully and thoughtfully gave and prepared so many dinners from her heart. In 1973, she and her family left Iowa returning to Muskogee, OK.
Faye was a woman of great strength who exuded beauty inside and out. She was very neat and meticulous and could tell when something was out of place. She took pride in her appearance and was known for her long and exquisite hair. She was a hard worker and worked until she became ill in October of 2020. She was a go-getter and believed in being there for her family. Faye loved all her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren unconditionally and continued her holiday traditions with them. She leaves her family to cherish all the good memories.
