Euna Faye Sirman, 93 of Corsicana, passed from this life peacefully Tuesday, Dec. 26, 2017 in Corsicana.
Faye was born in Wortham to Faye Craig Price and Robert James Price on Sept. 26, 1924. She attended school in Wortham and graduated from Wortham High School and later married the love of her life, John Manton Sirman. Prior to her retirement, she worked in book keeping at State National Bank and Corsicana National Bank. She was a devoted member of Northside Baptist Church.
Nanny, as she was known by many that loved her, adored her family; she cherished time spent with her daughter, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. Faye was an avid sports fan - she loved her Corsicana Tigers, her Navarro College Bulldogs, her Texas Rangers, and her Dallas Cowboys. She had a passion for shopping and going to Branson, Missouri with her daughter, Cindy. Faye looked forward to the holidays when she would enjoy baking pies and making her famous homemade fudge, she would enjoy some and would give the rest away, that's what she loved to do.
Faye was preceded in death by her loving husband of 47 years, John Manton Sirman.
Left to cherish her memory are her daughter and son-in-law Cindy and Bill Griggs of Kerens; grandson John Griggs and wife Traycie of Powell; grandson Jake Griggs and wife Danika of Corsicana; great grandchildren Andi Faye Griggs, John Manton Griggs, and Darby Brooke Griggs and soon to be great grandchild number four, sister Billie Sirman of Tyler, along with numerous nieces and nephews, and Prissy number two, her cat that she loved so dearly.
Faye's great granddaughter, Andi Faye Griggs, is honored and excited to take responsibility of taking care and loving Prissy just as Nanny did. The family is comforted in knowing that Nanny is reunited with Papa in Heaven. As Andi Faye Griggs says with joy she is with Jesus now.
