Billie Faye was born March 22, 1942 in Waco. She loved deeply and lived life BIG! She was an amazing seamstress and a good cook. She enjoyed rodeos, playing BINGO, church hymns, country music, and wearing a variety of festive hats. She loved her beaded bracelets that had sparkle, shine or glitter and anything that BLINGED. Billie was high-spirited, had a good sense of humor, and never met a stranger. She treasured and enjoyed her time living at Lake Mexia tending to her rose bushes along with her husband, Jim. In her later years, she was known for her “old-timey horn” sound, “a- ooga, a-ooga” Which brought laughter to all! Billie loved her family and friends and she was much loved by all of us. She will remain forever in our hearts.

  1. I’m so very sorry for your loss Rhonda.
    You will be in my thoughts & prayers.

  2. Julie Waite Groman, Social Worker

    My sincere condolences to the family on the loss of Billie. She was my favorite “Drive-By” in her wheelchair when I was her social worker at Crestview, and she loved showing off a hat or telling me about a phone call she’d received from a daughter. Billie had a heart of gold and loved fiercely. I’m so glad I was able to know her, and my memories of her are and will remain fond ones.

  3. So sorry to hear of your loss, Terrie and Milton and family, May god be with you !

  4. Billy was a very nice and friendly person. She loved to wear her hats and carry her purse around with her. She would wheel up and down the hallway speeding in her wheelchair smiling and speaking to everyone. She always had a smile on her face. At supper time before she received her tray she would say, “I want the real McCoy!”and everyone would laugh. (Real Food) She will be missed by me and others from the Crestview staff. Love, Fanny

  5. Grateful she passed peacefully ! Peace and love to the family.
