Ina Faye Teague Peek, 92, went to be with the Lord and her family on April 2, 2011.
Faye was born Sept. 2, 1918, to Sara Elizabeth Teague in Mt. Vernon; she was the youngest of eight children. Upon graduation from high school, Faye came to Commerce to work her way through college and obtained her degree from East Texas State Teacher’s College in 1941. In February 1942 she married J.H. (Joyce) Peek at the First Baptist Church in Commerce. From their union came Mike (Beverly) of Athens and Jim Peek of Commerce. Faye’s grandchildren are Rachel (Seth) Flutcher of Frederick, Colo., Meredith (Jeff) Davis of Keller, Jaron (fiancee Tiffany Mathias) of Lewisville, and Craig of Athens.
Faye was devoted to God, family and her beloved church, where she taught Sunday school and cared for the children in the nursery for more than 50 years. She was a mother, a homemaker, a caregiver to everyone, especially the young children of Commerce. She would love and adopt just about every child in town, opening her home to them. She would take food, medicine, clothing and whatever she could to older people in need. She donated a lot of her time and resources to new churches in Commerce. Faye proudly served on the Zoning Commission and the Rosemound Cemetery boards for many years.
Visitation is from 6 to 8 p.m. today at the Commerce Funeral Home.
A graveside service will be at 10:30 a.m. Friday at Rosemound Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, family members request memorials be made to the First Baptist Church Preschool Ministry Program or the Rosemound Cemetery Association in Commerce.
