My memory of Farris is when she hired me to work for her from a phone call. I didn't know her or even where her shop was located, yet she gave me a job. She was a beautiful person inside & out!! I'll always remember how you loved the holidays & how you decorated for each season!! I loved her & will miss her greatly!!

Farris was such a lovely person. She was my mother's best friend for so many years. She and Daddy even named me after Farris (LaRhue), so I always felt that Farris was my godmother. I loved her and will miss her greatly. It is my honor to play the piano for her funeral service. Sherry (LaRhue) Faith Chapman
