Faye was a true leader and role model to many people she worked with and trained during her 28 years in the banking business. She was loved, admired and valued by all who worked with her. She was revered by her customers so much that many of them followed her to different branches so that she could continue to personally assist them. Faye was valued in the service community of College Park and Stewart Lakewood as she worked tirelessly to make them better communities in which to work and live. She retired in 1993 due to ill health.

She was preceded in death by her parents, James A. and Voncille Heard Clark.

She is survived by her husband of 42 years, Kenneth L. Phillips; children Kenneth Craig Phillips, Robin Phillips Williamson; grandchildren, Steven M. Williamson, Cole P. Williamson, Daniel Cristan Williamson, Braden Phillips; brother, Charles Adon (Pete) Clark; many nieces and nephews whom she dearly loved. She will be truly missed.
