Faye was born in Russellville, Georgia, to the late Alfred and Bernice English O’Neal. A graduate of Miller High School, class of 1956, she worked as a bookkeeper at Willingham Loan and Realty Company and later as a secretary at McNair, McLemore, Middlebrooks, and Company before retiring in 2014. Faye was a lifelong member of Mikado Baptist Church where she was a well-loved children’s Sunday School teacher and director of the nursery for over thirty years.
She had a heart for sharing Jesus with children and for serving others. She was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, aunt, niece, and friend to many. Her grandchildren were the apple of her eye. She cherished every opportunity she had to spend time with them and for many years traveled hundreds of miles to ensure she was with them on each of their birthdays. She passed the legacy of her faith to her daughter and grandchildren in many ways, including her love of music and the old hymns. Faye was known for her tender, compassionate heart and her willingness to care for others.
She was preceded in death by her father, Alfred O’Neal, her mother, Bernice English O’Neal Stevens, her sister, Nancy Stevens, her stepfather, Luke Stevens, and her stepmother Mary Oakley Stevens. She is survived by her husband of fifty-seven years, A. Phillip Johnson of Macon; her daughter, Shannon Johnson Cook (Kurt) of Cincinnati, Ohio; her grandchildren, Luke Cook, Ella Cook, and Anna Cook; her brother, Danny O’Neal (Carol) of Carrolton, Georgia; her sisters-in-law, Carol Hodges (Bobby), Elaine Brown (Danny), and Patricia Davis; her step-sister, Shelvia Neal (Gary); and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
