Faustine Roy

February 12, 1926 — June 25, 2016

Faustine Roy, age 90, of Huntersville N.C., and formerly of Somerset, passed away on Saturday, June 25, 2016 at Huntersville Oaks. Faustine, also known as "Tein" or "Nana," was a hard-working mother, a loving wife, and the best grandmother and great-grandmother imaginable. She loved every living creature, including her dog and best furry friend Tia, who she fittingly called "Princess." Some of her family's best memories of her include baking fresh fried apple pies together in her kitchen, picking blueberries barefoot from her garden in the mornings, Thanksgiving feasts around her table that warmly welcomed all who came, and reliving her "Hickory Nut" days with stories that never lost their charm.

Faustine was born on February 12, 1926 in Hickory Nut, KY to the late William and Gertie (Spaw) Dick.

She is survived by one son, Doug (and Beth) Roy of Concord, N.C.; one brother, Donald C. Dick of Imaly City, MI; one sister, Marie Abbott of Somerset, KY; one granddaughter, Keri (and Dayn) Chittick of Kannapolis, N.C.; great-granddaughters Mirabelle Faustine (after her Great-Nana) and Everly Quinn, two step-grandchildren, Isabella Pinska and Brayden Pinska, nieces & nephews, Donna Lehl, Debbie Abbott, Darrell Dick, Delma Robberstad, Dana Dick and Darla Vonderheid; and a daughter-in-law, Linda Colony Rivera of Franklinville, N.C.

Along with her parents she was preceded in death by her husband, William Elgar Roy, whom she married on September 15, 1945 in Jamestown, KY and he preceded her on November 5, 2008.

Visitation will be held on Tuesday, June 28, 2016 after 6:00pm at Lake Cumberland Funeral Home.

Her funeral service will be held on Wednesday, June 29, 2016 at 10:00am at the Chapel of Lake Cumberland Funeral Home with Bro. Gilbert Robinson officiating. Burial will be at Lakeside Memorial Gardens in Somerset.
