Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Faye Pruitt Bishop, 60, of Columbus, Georgia passed away on Monday, September 28 at home, surrounded by family. She is survived by her loving husband Larry Bishop, daughter Amanda Bond (Jeremy), son Blake Bishop (Rebecca) and stepdaughter Amber Dunn (Wesley). Also surviving are her mother Betty Ray, brother Lane Pruitt, and sisters Robin Stubbs, Rita Pruitt, Lori Desimone, Renee Gaddis, along with countless nieces, nephews, and cousins. Faye was most proud of her title as “Best Memaw in the World” to Charlote, Rayllee, Jaxon, Hasley, Megan, and Aries.
Faye was born on April 28th, 1960 to Robert and Betty Pruitt. She attended Kendrick High School, graduating in 1978. She worked as a secretary and later as a homemaker.
Anyone that knew Faye knew that her best quality was her smile and ability to make anyone laugh at the most inappropriate time. Her light shone bright enough for everyone to see and enjoy. Her smile was as bright as the morning sun and just as warm. Faye was a lover of tiny things, especially babies and small animals. She had many little dogs throughout her life and loved them all dearly. She couldn’t stand for anyone around her to be hungry. As a child, Blake could delay bedtime every night by telling her he needed a snack. She was a nurturer through and through. If she had it, it was yours if you needed it.
Faye most enjoyed spending time with her family, especially her nieces and nephews. Her favorite holidays were Christmas and Easter because all of the kids had such a good time. She loved Easters at Motherbake’s and family reunions in Opp, Alabama. To say that Faye adored her family is an understatement.
