August 10, 1929 ~ December 3, 2023 (age 94) 94 Years Old
Mary Fay Smith, known affectionately as Fay, passed away peacefully in her sleep on December 3, 2023, at the age of 94, at her home in Allgood, Alabama. She was born on August 10, 1929, in Selma, Alabama, to Wesley and Herschel Haynes. Fay was preceded in death by her loving husband, Lynn, her daughter, Marion Campbell, and her parents.
Fay is survived by her twin sister, Lillian Glenn, and her children; Doug Smith, Harold Smith, and Susan Sparks (Michael). She was a cherished grandmother to Jacky Smith (Celina), Eric Sparks (Lacy), and Kevin Sparks (Katlyn) as well as a beloved great-grandmother to Opal, Irwin, Bentley, Wyatt, and Kendra.
Fay attended Woodlawn High School and later dedicated her life to being a homemaker. She had a passion for painting and fabric work, and her artistic talents were showcased through the beautiful backgrounds she painted for dance recitals and the costumes she created for Miss Beverly's School of Dance.
Fay was a member of Shiloh Methodist Church, where she found comfort and solace. She deeply valued her faith and the sense of community it provided.
The funeral arrangements are being handled by Serenity Chapel Funeral Home in Birmingham, Alabama. The family will receive friends and loved ones at home to pay their respects and celebrate Fay's life.
Fay will be dearly missed by all who knew her, and her legacy of love and creativity will live on in the hearts of her family and friends.
