Celebrating the life of Fay Jean Hille Henderson
Thank you for signing Fay Jean Hille Henderson's Guestbook
Fay was always a special person to our family as we our families have known each other for about 50 years. When I was still in Grade school we would stop on our weekly trips to Grandma's house in Dakota IL to buy farm fresh eggs from Fay. Not long after Fay and Family lived in the block behind us in Freeport. I always remember how upbeat and friendly she was.
When my parents moved to North Carolina in 1973, Fay then would become next door neighbors and was a special friend to my Mother. Fay will be missed and will always be remembered for the joy she gave us all.

I loved my Aunt Fay. I remember one time when my mom was correcting me about what I was wearing for a girl' my size. Aunt Fay heard it all, and she scooped me into her arms with, "Sue Ellen, you're a beautiful girl no matter how much you way because real beauty is on the inside, honey, and you want that to be as big as a house! So,you just keep on being a good girl and don't give her no never mind. I love you, and Jesus,loves you, too." With a kiss and a gentle pat, my wounded pride was bandaged. Aunt Fay was and is a sweet angel to soooooo many. God bless.

Miss Fay will always be remembered as a very fine lady. You could not have asked for a better friend nor a better person. Miss fay was a founder of The Wildwood Flowers Red Hat group and was and always will be loved by each and every one of us that were blessed to have been in her life. We had a saying, 'You could never out give Miss Fay'. She will be greatly missed at our Red Hat meetings. I, personally refuse to take this a bad news as Miss Fay wanted and was more than ready to go be with her Lord. She is now a shining light in Heaven. Always love you Miss Fay.
