Fay was a devout Christian woman who was saved as a child and baptized in the creek shortly after becoming a member of the Mt. Moriah Baptist Church, where she attended as a child during her formative years. After some time, she joined the First Baptist Church in Woodbury and became a member there. She started her working life at Colonial Corporation, but she eventually became a stay-at-home mother and raised her children. She worked as a receptionist for Dr. Robert’s practice from the time her children started school to the year 1994, when she underwent surgery for a benign brain tumor.
When Fay was counting her blessings, she talked about her Christian religion and how much she loved Jesus.
