Faye Taylor McQueary, formerly of Liberty, passed away on Friday, December 18, 2020, in Dallas, Georgia. She was 87.
Born on August 20, 1933, in Liberty, Kentucky, she was a daughter of the late Gather Clay and Hazel Gertrude Hayes Taylor.

Faye was manager of Kinney Shoes for many years and won multiple awards for sales. She was a volunteer of the community and personally saw to the shut-ins of Tennessee Ridge in Casey County. She was an active cattle & crop farmer, accomplished seamstress, woodworker & skilled quilter. She was active in the Adopt-a-Highway-Keep Liberty Beautiful organization and an Election Polls Volunteer for many years, among other community efforts. Faye was a devoted caregiver for many friends & family members. More than anything, Faye loved to travel and as an Army wife she thrived on the many moves, transfers, and different cultures her family encountered. She never met a stranger & just "talked louder" if they were not American.
