Elizabeth Faye Brown

Elizabeth Faye Brown, age 81, passed away quietly on November 30, 2018 at the Azalea Health and Rehab Center in Wilmington, NC. Faye was preceded in death by her parents, Roland Lawrence Brown and Lora Mae Bordeaux Brown of Bolton, NC, and a sister Betty Brown Vincent of Wilmington. She is survived by her twin Sister, Bonnie Brown Cooper Warwick of Wilmington, and sister Nora Brown Bednarczyk of Wilmington, and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Faye was extraordinarily talented and took great pride in her needlework and making gifts for others. She spent her days crocheting and visiting with all who stopped by to admire her work. She was quite an entrepreneur, organizing Christmas craft shows at the nursing home each fall where she showcased and sold her handiwork. Since childhood Faye has enjoyed playing the piano and singing hymns. From 1991 to 1998, Faye was a faithful volunteer at New Hanover Regional Medical Center where she enjoyed delivering flowers and mail to patients.

Faye’s joyous spirit, sense of humor, devotion to family, and love of her Savior Jesus Christ defined her being.

A memorial service for Faye will be held at Bolton Baptist Church at 2pm on Sunday, December 2. The family will receive friends at 1PM in the church Fellowship Hall 126 Popular Ave., Bolton. In lieu of flowers you can send a memorial gift to Bolton Baptist Church at , PO Box 70, Bolton, NC 28423.

    I will always remember Faye sitting and crocheting in and around Azalea Rehab. I looked forward to chatting with her and admiring her work. She was a lovely person with a kind spirit. My heart grieves with you.
