Life’s Journey for Faye Phillips began on October 09, 1955 when she was born to the late Annice Hicks Allred and Emerson Allred Jr. Faye was born in Jamestown, North Carolina and was raised in High Point, North Carolina with her loving parents and 5 older siblings. Faye received her education at Florence Elementary and Ragsdale High School. Prior to relocating to Texas, Faye worked at Adam Millis Hosiery Mill and within her first few years in Texas, Faye worked as a manager at Burger King. In the early 90’s, Faye was hired at Maxwell House Coffee and she later retired after 27 years of service.
In 1985, Faye married her beloved, Alvin Phillips, and made Houston their home until her homegoing. Faye was a member of Fruit City Church in Houston, Texas and upon her arrival to Texas, she was a member of Mt. Olive Baptist Church, where she served on the Usher Board.
“Baby Girl”, “Faye Faye”, “Momma Faye” and “Pretty Girl” were affectionate nicknames she was called by family and friends. Faye had a warm and welcoming spirit and will be remembered for her love of family and fellowship. Faye was a skilled baker and she loved to cook for family and friends as often as possible. Faye was her happiest with a house full of people, a table full of home cooked food, and music and laughter in the air. Over the years, Faye became a true Texan. She enjoyed trail rides, rodeos, Zydeco dancing and she even had her own horses. In 2019, Faye began her battle with breast cancer and she fought fearlessly until God called her home. Throughout her life, Faye exuded strength and an unwavering faith in God and His ability to fulfill his promises.
