Boyd~ Claudie “Faye” Winters, 82, went to be with her Lord on Friday, May 24, 2019, in Decatur. Funeral is 1:00 p.m. Monday, May 27, 2019, at the First United Methodist Church in Boyd with burial in Boyd Cemetery. Family will receive friends 11:00 a.m.- 1:00 p.m. Monday at the church. Rev. J.D.

Faye was born August 25, 1936, to Cecil and Artie B. (Wright) Latham in Hidalgo, Texas. She was united in marriage October 2, 1954, to Leo Winters in Markham, Texas. They traveled and enjoyed over twenty- five years of military life together before settling down in Boyd. After retirement, Faye enjoyed reading, crocheting and loved square dancing. She was a member of First United Methodist Church of Boyd. She always had her camera ready for taking pictures of the children’s events at church. Faye never met a stranger, she greeted everyone with a smile and a conversation, she had a lasting impact on everyone she met. Faye knew how to make you feel at ease and comfortable even if you just met her. She believed everyone should have a friend to talk to, and every child needed a cookie for each hand. Faye’s greatest joy was her family and spending time with them. She is preceded in death by her parents; her sisters, Virginia Lee Latham, and Charlene Strickland; and her brother, William “Doc” Latham. Those left behind to cherish her memory are her loving husband of 64 years, Leo Winters of Boyd; her son, Cecil Winters of Boyd; her daughters, Sue Garrett of Boyd, and Cindy Abraham and husband Andy of Boyd; her grandchildren, Michael Winters and wife April of Boyd, Mark Gonzalez of Midland, Melissa Ortego and husband Josh of Moss Bluff, Louisiana, Kristina Hays and husband RJ of Boyd, Matthew Winters and wife Courtney of Dequincy, Louisiana, and Jamie Abraham of Boyd; as well as numerous great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews and friends.
