Faye B. Maynor, 86, of Lynchburg, Virginia, died Monday, February 4, 2019. Mrs. Maynor was born in Durham, NC, on December 7, 1932, the youngest of eleven children to Reddin B. Bass and Lillie Belle Everett Bass. She was a gifted and accomplished hairstylist and teacher of cosmetology. She was retired from First Baptist Church in Roanoke, VA, where she worked for many years as food director, serving over 500 church members weekly for dinners and events.
In addition to her parents and siblings, Mrs. Maynor was predeceased by her loving husband of 62 years, Rosswell Alexander Maynor, and by a beloved daughter, Karen M. Fowler.
Mrs. Maynor is survived by three daughters: Lorrie M. Saunders and her husband Burrell of Norfolk, VA; Farah M. Marks and her husband Dudley of Lynchburg, VA; and Tracey Turpin of Roanoke, VA. She is also survived by five grandchildren: Rosswell Saunders and his wife Elizabeth; Lauren Fowler Reynolds and her husband Erick; Lyzah Richard; Marilyn Marks Taylor and her husband Julian; Samuel Marks; and five great grandchildren: Kaitlyn, Abigail and Benjamin Reynolds, and Coraline and Violet Saunders, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
Mrs. Maynor was a devoted spouse, mother, and friend to all. She loved the Lord and her family, and especially enjoyed reuniting for holidays, as well as connecting with her North Carolina relatives at family and school reunions. She was a compassionate caregiver with a servant’s heart and provided loving care for her husband, daughter and sister in their time of need. Mrs. Maynor adored music, whether it was attending a concert at a performance art center or at a senior life meeting, singing in the church choir, or harmonizing with family around the kitchen table. Believing in the importance of the arts, she encouraged all of her children and grandchildren to study music. She was an excellent cook who took great joy in preparing special dishes for holidays. Mrs. Maynor thoroughly enjoyed giving a good haircut to her daughters and sons-in law, having 4 o’clock coffee, and impromptu dancing.
