Faye Troy Lather was born March 5, 1941 in Picayune to the late Troy Lather and Leola Jordan. At an early age, Faye accepted Christ as her personal Savior and joined Weems Chapel U.M.C. under the leadership of the late Reverend Smith.    

Faye was a graduate of George Washington Carver High School in Picayune, MS.  She was previously employed as a seamstress.  She retired after many years from Slidell Industries, which later became known as Stuffed Shirt Factory. Faye united in holy matrimony to Charles Trotter, who preceded her in death. Her hobbies included fishing, spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and watching the Dallas Cowboys play NFL.

On Monday morning, March 2, 2020 in Picayune, MS, Faye heard the voice of Jesus calling her name. She answered His call and took His hand. She is preceded in death by her husband, Charles Trotter; her parents, Troy Lather and Leola Jordan; two sisters, Yvonne Haralson and Susan Lather-Scott; five brothers, Darryl Lather, Ray Charles Lather, Troy Earl Lather, Donald Lather, and Vernell Wilbert.

She leaves a legacy to cherish her loving memories: five beautiful daughters, Sandra Page, of Kenner, LA, Maxine Simmons, of Jackson, MS, Cynthia Lather, of Picayune, and Tammie (Larry) Silas, of Picayune, and Leola Bagley, of Atlanta, GA; five sisters, Evelyn Stubbs, and Wanda Williams, Doris Buckley, Linda Lather, and Sandra Benson; seven brothers, Troy (Marie) Jordan, of Houston, TX, Bobby (Barbara) Ray Jordan, of Jackson, MS, James (Simone) Roche, Carl Lather, Jeffery Lather, of Oakland, CA, and Michael Lather, of Freemont, OH; a lifelong friend, Ruby Jean Tyner-Walker; nineteen grandchildren; fifty-four great-grandchildren; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and of course, many friends.
