Billie Faye was born May 12, 1937 in Winston County to William Earl Lindsey and Clarice Theon (Rives) Lindsey. A homemaker and mother, Billie Faye volunteered as a leader in the Prairie Girl Scout Council and the South Central AL Girl Scout Council from the late 60s through 1979.
In addition to her active home life, she was a talented artist and owned a ceramics shop in Louisville, MS for several years before moving her business to her home in Sturgis, MS. In later years, Billie Faye created beautiful porcelain dolls and dressed them in hand sewn clothes that she made. She was an excellent seamstress and taught herself how to do smocking, embroidery work on clothes, and quilting. Some of her favorite things were to travel with her husband in their RV after retirement, spend time with her grandchildren, and try new craft projects.
Billie Faye is survived by her daughters, Janet Douglas of Santa Fe, NM; Lisa Noffsinger of Starkville, MS; 7 grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her husband, Charles P. Jordan; her parents, William Earl and Clarice Lindsey; grandson John Earl Douglas; and great-grandson Jordan Thomas Douglas.
