Faye Haywood

Faye Colleen Haywood, a longtime resident of Winters, passed away at home December 26, 2014, after a brave battle with cancer. She was 88.

Faye was born in Baxter County, AR to John and Eula Pinkston on September 15, 1926. She had 2 brothers, Voydell (deceased) and Doyle Pinkston.

On April 8, 1950, she married Harold Haywood. They lived in Michigan for about 20 years then moved to Winters in 1971, where they settled and raised 3 of their 7 children. They recently celebrated their 64th wedding anniversary.

Faye could always be found in the bleachers and school performances, cheering and supporting her children and their friends in all their endeavors. She was a loving mother, thoughtful friend and caring neighbor. She was a long-time member of the First Baptist Church of Winters.

In 1979, Faye began managing a local business, Dean's Frostie, for her brother and his wife, Doyle and Phyllis Pinkston, until they closed the business. Many of us still remember her smiling face at the Frostie.

Faye is survived by her husband Harold Franklin Haywood and her 7 children, Shirley Slagal and husband Jerry, Glen and wife Phyllis, Larry and wife Cat, Eugene and wife Betty, Christopher and wife Sue, Richard and wife Cheryl, John and wife Jean; grandchildren, Kelli Couch, Jill Pullen, Phillip John Slagal, Elizabeth McCarty, Christine Norwood, Shea Weatherford-Galvin, Erin Weiss, Holly Haywood and Rebecca Haywood and 15 great-grandchildren, whom she loved dearly. All who knew and loved her will miss her dearly.
