Alice Faye Pierpoint was born April 28, 1952, in Maryville, Missouri. On Tuesday, September 19, 2017, she left this world to join all those who have gone on before us to live in Eternal Life at the age of 65. Faye was the daughter of Wilbur “Tobe” Dale Graham and Juanita Maye (Plymell) Graham. She was the oldest of three children; her siblings were brothers, Russell and Galen Graham. Faye grew up in Burlington Junction, Missouri, and graduated from West Nodaway High School. She was baptized and became a member of the United Methodist Church in Burlington Junction March 29, 1964.
Faye married Kirby Pierpoint in 1973 and was blessed with three children, a daughter, Natalie, and two sons, Dustin and Spencer. Kirby and Faye later divorced. Faye lived in many places. The last 19 years were in College Springs, Iowa, with her significant other Bobby Carroll.
To all that knew Faye, you knew that she wanted to stay forever young at heart. Faye was many things: she was a loving mother, daughter, homemaker, farm girl, black top race car driver, a four leaf clover finder, cheer leader, a wonderful writer with beautiful handwriting, restaurant owner at one time, and a friend to many. She loved to sing and dance and to do anything that would bring a smile to her face and to others. She was famous for laughing until she cried.
Preceding Faye in death were her father, Tobe Graham; grandparents; and infant brother, Russell.
Left to cherish her memory are her children, Natalie Harmon and husband Britt, Dustin Pierpoint and fiancé Melissa Bohling and Spencer Pierpoint, all of Rock Port, Missouri; mother, Juanita “Tootsie” Carroll and husband Bob of College Springs, Iowa; significant other, Bobby Carroll of College Springs, Iowa; father of her children, Kirby Pierpoint of Rock Port, Missouri; brother, Galen Graham of Burlington Junction, Missouri; many cousins; nieces and nephews and many friends who will all miss her dearly.
