Fay Putnam to mark 90 years

Thursday, August 29, 2002

Friends and family of Faye Isenhower Tucker Putnam are invited to help celebrate her 90th birthday.

She is a special mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, great-great-grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin and friend to her family, and a special lady to a lot of people.

Many people will remember her as the owner and great cook that she was during the time she and her husband Earl owned and operated Earl's Cafe which was located on the square in Salem for many years. She is still a great cook and still makes those good pies.

Faye and Earl Putnam raised their six children -- Toppie, Patsy, Joy, Carolyn, Max and Theo -- in the Fulton County area.

After the children were grown they moved around the area, living in Hardy and Highland. They were living in Jacksonville at the time of Earl's death.

Faye later moved to the Mammoth Spring area and lived there for several years. She now lives in Searcy, but comes back to the area as often as possible. She has many fond memories of the people in Fulton County.

Anyone who would like to help honor this special lady is invited to come by and give her a hug and take a trip down memory lane at Salem Church of Christ Sept. 7 from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.

Smiles and hugs will be gifts enough.
