  1. So many memories of this beautiful woman and my Uncle Kelsey! He was my dad’s (Bunt) brother. I have many wonderful memories of Iva Faye. I just found out about her passing, and was so sad to hear it. I talked to Iva Faye and Kelsey shortly before my dad and Kelsey died. She was so gracious, even though I hadn’t seen her since she had moved to Texas. Such a sweet spirit! We will keep you all in our thoughts and prayers.

  2. To all of our Tennessse family, you are so much in our hearts. We know the fabric we came from. Thank you for the words and memories that we can hold close.

  3. I have very fond and special memories of Aunt Iva Faye and Uncle Kels. Kelsey was my dad’s (Bo) brother. Kels and Iva Faye were truly Sweethearts! They were kind to everyone even the rowdy nieces and nephews. I always admired Iva Faye’s handiwork sewing frilly little dresses for Denise and Cindy, she was quiet the seamstress, but most of all she was a loving and caring person. Memories of playing Keep Away and Dodgeball with us as kids, picnics, family reunions and a wonder hostess/tour guide during my visit to Texas. You were blessed if you met Iva Faye.
    Prayers for peace and comfort until you meet again.

  4. Iva Faye was my aunt. Kelsey was my dad’s (Pete) brother. What a beautiful couple these two were. Iva Faye was a beautiful young lady and Kelsey was such a handsome young man. She was always so good to us when we were kids. Over the years however, didn’t get to see each other much. A few years ago I found out they were home (here in TN )and as soon as I got of work I went to see them. I will never forget how happy we all were to see each other. My family ( my Mother was Ernesteen) all loved Iva Faye and Kelsey so very much. When Denise came along …..oh my goodness how exciting it was. Sorry we as cousins don’t know each other very well but knowing you are part of a very amazing family 💕 makes me feel the warmth in my heart for you all. Please know that you all are in our prayers and would love to hear from all of you. 🙏🙏🙏💕💕
