Also preceding her in death are parents Walter and Georgia Davis and brother Roy Davis, all of her hometown, Crossville, Tennessee.

LAWSON, Faye, Evelyn passed away peacefully, Tuesday, August 12, 2014 at Sycamore Hospital after a brief illness. She leaves her loving daughter, Rebekah, of Miamisburg to cherish a lifetime of treasured memories, not only of her mother but the family Faye loved so much: her wonderful husband of 56 years, Henry, who has waited patiently for her since 2006, and her beloved son Charley, who left in 1987. Also preceding her in death are parents Walter and Georgia Davis and brother Roy Davis, all of her hometown, Crossville, Tennessee.
Faye came to Dayton in 1947 to work at NCR after graduating Cosmetology School in Knoxville, Tennessee. Here, she became reacquainted with her childhood schoolmate, Henry Lawson, and they married in1950. After starting their family, Faye went back to work in 1956, and continued a very successful 44-year career as a beautician with her own business in her home, before reluctantly retiring in 2000.
Faye enjoyed her beautiful home, cooking huge meals for every occasion, her beautiful flowers and gardens, her sweet cats, Missy and Twee Twee; and her many wonderful travels; but, most of all, loved taking care of her family. Faye will be missed by many, but none more than by her devoted daughter, who will miss her forever, but who takes comfort in knowing she's with Daddy and Charley.
Rebekah would like to thank the physician and nursing staffs at Heartland of Miamisburg, especially Chole; and Sycamore Hospital, specifically Amanda, who shared Rebekah's love with Faye as she passed. She brought Faye special kindness and love at the end. Faye lived a good life, fought a hard fight, but was finally tired. May she forever rest in peace. Friends will be received from 11:00AM to 1:00PM Monday, August 18, 2014 at the TOBIAS FUNERAL HOME-Far Hills Chapel; where service will be held 1:00PM Monday. Burial will follow in the Forest Hills Memorial Garden.
