Kay Frances Wilkinson Faw, 77, of Salisbury went to be with the Lord on Sunday, July 8, 2018 surrounded by her loving family following a period of declining health.

Kay was born December 22, 1940 in Iredell County, NC a daughter of the late Bruce Carlington Wilkinson and the late Frances Marie Bumgarner Wilkinson.

She was a graduate of Landis High School. Over the years she had served faithfully with her husband in his ministry and business endeavors.

Kay Faw was a rare treasure that not many will ever find. She was a loving wife, mother and grandmother, nurturing and compassionate. She was a prayer warrior and a woman of integrity. As a pastor’s wife she spent her life serving others. Her legacy is an entire family who serves Jesus.

Kay had an amazing sense of humor and a contagious joy. But mostly she was a true Proverbs 31 woman. These scriptures describe her perfectly:

Proverbs 31:25-30 reads:

Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: “Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all.” ...

Funeral services to celebrate her life will be held 12:00 Noon Thursday, July 12, 2018 at City Revival Church of Kannapolis, (formerly Truth Temple), conducted by Pastor Bryn Waddell, Rev. Gary Posey, Rev. Flip Benham and Mike Ruffin. Entombment will follow at Rowan Memorial Park Mausoleum, Salisbury.

The family will receive friends at the church Wednesday, July 11, 2018 from 6:00 P.M.-8:00 P.M. At other times they will be at the residence.

Family members left to cherish her memory are her husband of 60 years; Rev. Garland Faw of the Home, four daughters; Angela (Carl) Ford of China Grove, Shelia Igo of Salisbury, Andrea Frieze (Terry) of Nashville and Vanessa Miles (Mark) of Salisbury, ten grandchildren, and fifteen great grandchildren also survive.

Memorials may be made to City Revival Church of Kannapolis, P.O. Box 82, Landis, N.C. 28088.

Whitley’s Funeral Home is serving the family of Mrs. Faw.

"Bro. Garland and girls: We are thankful to have known our sister in the LORD. We were blessed so many times with that laughter that came from her heart. We would love to be with you at this time but health and travel issues prevent it. We pray our loving LORD JESUS comfort all of you now and in the days to come until we all meet where we shall ever be with HIM."

"Vanessa and family. I'm so sorry to hear about your mother. Even though I didnt know her well I did know her mother, Ms. Frances as I went to church at West Corinth with her for many years. I'm sure Ms. Kay had many of the same qualities as her mother. I know our Lord will give you and your family much peace especially knowing you will certainly see her again. May God give you the strength and comfort to get you through this difficult time. Joyce"

"To all the Loving Faw family: I've just learned of Kay's going home to be with the Lord. Words will not describe her absence here, to all who knew this divine woman of Christ, especially her dear husband and family. We can take her memory with us always until we are taken in the way she has made the journey in crossing over. Much love and prayers to you all! Friend and servant Ronnie Posey"
