Obituary of Faye Reynolds Justice-Thacker
Faye Reynolds Justice-Thacker of Covington, age 101, passed away peacefully on Sunday, April 18, 2021 at her home. She was born on May 5, 1919 in Phyllis, KY to the late Orlando and Etty Reynolds.
Faye was an excellent homemaker, her home was always warming, yet spotless! She kept her home so clean you could eat off her floors. She loved beautiful flowers around her house, specifically petunias. She was also a very hardworking woman. Faye always canned and preserved vegetables from her garden and raised her own chickens. She made the best homecooked meals that her family will never forget- especially her country breakfast. Everything was homemade from her. When she wasn’t working on her home, Faye kept busy with sewing. She was a meticulous and creative seamstress, she even made her own curtains! Most of all, Faye loved caring for her children and grandchildren. She will truly be missed beyond measure.
In addition to her parents, Faye is preceded in death by her first husband, Grover Cleveland Justice; her husband from her second marriage, James Elmo Thacker; son, Lloyd Justice; son-in-law, Jim Palma; and 17 brothers and sisters.
Survived to mourn her loss are her loving children, Ralph (Joyce) Justice, Bea (David) Salyers, Vivian Thorpe, Ronnie (Nancy) Justice, Lori (Jess) Moore, and Carol Palma; 19 beloved grandchildren; 33 great-grandchildren; 14 great-great-grandchildren; as well as many other friends and family members who will forever cherish her wonderful memory.
