Faye, as everyone knew her, was born on November 10, 1946. She was the daughter of Waldo W. and Lora (Angelly) Gibbs. She went to be with her Lord and Savior on July 31, 2021 at 10:20 p.m. at Ascension St. Vincent Hospital in Evansville, Indiana.
Faye graduated with the Harrisburg High School class of 1965 after marrying the love of her life, Larry G. Greer on January 22, 1965. He preceded her in death on September 5, 2006. To this union were born three children: Gina, Larry and Bill.
Faye worked several jobs throughout her life, but was best known for her work at Dillards, where she made many friends. Her favorite text to send, every morning without fail to those she loved, was “Good morning, have a good day. Love ya bunches.” She was a Christian by faith, and is now in the arms of Jesus.
Faye is survived by her children Gina (Mike) Bryant, of Jasper, Alabama, Larry W. (Donna) Greer, of Harrisburg, and Bill Greer of Harrisburg.
