Obituary for Pauletta Faye Farris

Pauletta Faye Farris of Okemah, OK was born October 27, 1942 in Welch, OK. Faye, as she was known to her family and friends, was raised near Grand Lake by her parents, Dottie and Stanley Comstock. She graduated from Afton High School in 1961. Faye met and married her best friend and the love of her life, James Farris, in 1963. Together, they raised three children in Del City, OK before moving to Okemah, OK. After raising her three children, Faye worked as a CNA in home healthcare. She was a member of the Calvary Baptist Church in Okemah, OK.

Faye loved and was fully dedicated to her husband and family. She was known as Nanny to her 9 grandchildren and 21 great grandchildren. Nothing made her happier than to be surrounded by her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. Her favorite place to spend time with them was at the lake. During the summer, she could be found floating in the water surrounded by her family or playing skip-bo and dominos at the campsite.

On January 16, 2017, Faye left this earth to join her husband of 54 years, James Farris; father, Stanley Comstock; brother, Ben McCord; and sister, Jayne McCord in eternal life.

She leaves behind and will be dearly missed by her son, Terry Farris and wife Lisa of Mustang, OK; daughters Tina Maye and husband Todd of Coweta, OK, and Theresa Patrick of Moore, OK; 9 grandchildren- James Eric Brown, Lisa Kifer, Lindsay Branan, Timmothy Skirlock, Aaron Hazen, Ashley Corona, Lacey Farris, Brittany Farris, and William Farris; 21 great grandchildren; mother, Dottie Comstock and sister, Sue Jones.

In loving memory of the love between our parents, take care of dad for us and get that man some coffee!!
