OBITUARY: Elizabeth Fay Embler

Elizabeth Fay Embler

Elizabeth Fay Embler, age 73, passed away Friday, September 24, 2021, at Maury Regional Medical Center in Columbia, Tennessee.

Fay Embler was the embodiment of a joyful soul. IF you were to walk into her home you were greeted by the smell of coffee and the question “Have you eaten yet?” She always had a heart for caring for others. Especially her family. She was a loving mother and grandmother, and truly a mother to all. When Fay wasn’t wrangling children she was an avid reader, she loved to spend time with a good book or lovin’ on her animals. Fay dedicated her life to loving those around her, she is loved and will be dearly missed.

Fay is survived by her children: Leonard (Rose) Embler, Beth Embler, Sarah (Joe Schultz) Embler, and Andrew Embler; grandchildren: Kandice Embler, Bray Embler, and Chelsie Bales; great-grandchildren: Sophia Dokes, Lucas Legarrea, Vinny Vaughn, and Riley Vaughn; brothers: Robert Vaughn and Henry (Linda) Vaughn; brother in law: Dan Embler; many nieces and nephews and all of the creek kids. Fay is preceded in death by her husband Jackson Embler and grandson Kye Embler.

The family will receive friends Tuesday, September 28, 2021, from 12:00 p.m. until 2:00 p.m. at Williams Funeral Home in Mt. Pleasant, TN. A memorial service celebrating Elizabeth’s life will immediately follow visitation at 2:00 p.m. with Paul Vaughn officiating. A graveside memorial service will be held at a later date.

Honorary pallbearers are: Farris Embler, Clifford Cates, David Vaughn, Jesse Vaughn, Jeff Embler, Keith Vaughn, David Harvell, Lee (Lisa) Shrake, Bessie Scott, and Teresa Embler.
