Lola Fay Hensely McCall Claycomb, 86, passed away Friday, May 18, 2018 at her home in Eagar. She was born May 24, 1931 in Ballinger, Texas the daughter of Charles Buck Hensley, Sr. and Leola Jones Hensley.
Fay worked many jobs from picking cotton to managing the Round Valley schools cafeteria for many years. She also managed the hospital patient and staff food service for 10 years and the Beaverhead Lodge from 1974 until it was sold and dismantled. That was one of the happiest and most fulfilling jobs of her life. She was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Fay made beautiful quilts and donated to many benefit auctions and other charitable events. She supplemented her income with the sales of her quilts. Many of us had the opportunity of helping, if our work passed the test. Grandchildren and many others felt the comfort of her warm, soft baby quilts and graduated to the larger ones.
Throughout Fay’s life she acquired the gift of being a true friend. Many people loved her and became her lifetime friends. Her family appreciates all the visits, concern and help during the past few months of her life. We would also like to thank Hospice Compassus for the loving care given and the many hours of help given. Fay was able to stay at home, which was her greatest wish. We feel there are many angels among us. Thank you.
