Faye B. Tranum, age 93, of Bristol Tennessee fulfilled her journey on earth on January 8, 2018 and went to meet her Lord and Savior. 


Faye was born in Castlewood, Virginia and spent her childhood in Damascus, Virginia.  Shortly after graduating from high school, she moved to Bristol where she worked for the telephone company.  Most recently, she was employed at East High School. 


She was a long-time member of Tennessee Avenue Baptist Church where she was known as Miss Faye to her Awana classes and her three-year-olds classes.  Most recently she was a member of Bethany Fellowship Baptist Church.  Faye was a devoted wife, loving mother and outstanding Grandmother and Great-Grandmother. She was also a fierce prayer warrior. Her great attitude and perseverance through adversity will be sorely missed.


Her family was blessed by her presence and example.  She was preceded in death by her husband William S. “Bill” Tranum.  She is survived by her daughter, Judy Tranum; two sons, Mark Tranum (Vickie) and Mike Tranum (Alicia); four granddaughters Katie Tranum Priester (Joe), Amanda Tranum Scott (Taylor), Mollie Tranum Creel (Caleb) and Haley Tranum.  She is also survived by two great-grandsons, Ethan Priester and Landon Priester.


The family will receive friends on Friday, January 12, 2018, from 4pm to 6pm and a celebration of life service will immediately follow at Weaver Funeral Home with Rev. David Burton officiating.  There will be a graveside service at Glenwood Cemetery at 11:00am on Saturday, January 13, 2018.
