Mrs. Faye Hoots Poindexter of Advance transitioned to her heavenly home on Sunday, June 18, 2023 surrounded by her family and loved ones.

Faye was the beloved daughter of the late Kenneth and Ila Fulk Hoots. She was a graduate of Davie High School and the Wingate College secretarial program. She was a long-time office manager of the Duke Power Advance office and finished her career at the Winston-Salem and Greensboro offices where she made many lifelong friendships. Faye retired from Duke Energy in 2003. Faye was a member of Advance Methodist Church and had attended Advance Baptist Church where she actively participated in outreach ministries. She was an active member of the Davie Civitan Club for many years and she and her husband and two sons were awarded the Western N.C. Civitan “District Family of the Year” award for their Civitan work.

Faye loved her community and she was an excellent cook. She enjoyed being with others and before her illness she often hosted many pool parties, cookouts, meals, Thanksgiving and Easter dinners for her family, neighbors and friends. She was known for serving  homemade meals with her delicious sourdough bread and pound cakes. She never forgot a birthday and if you were fortunate enough to be one of her many friends you were truly blessed. Faye had a quick sense of humor and never forgot a funny story that she could share at any appropriate moment.

She was happily married to her best friend and care giver, Nick Poindexter, and on July 23 they would have celebrated 28 years together. She and Nick enjoyed many wonderful adventures, traveling with friends and family all over the United States. Faye’s happiest moments were spent with her beloved husband Nick and sons Ken Stroud, Brad Stroud, daughter-in-law Annie Stroud and her three precious grandchildren – Carden, Carsyn, and Weston Stroud – all of Advance. Faye is also survived by: her dear sister and caregiver, Gaye Hoots of Oriental; her brother, Phil Hoots (Jeannie) of Fayetteville; 2 special nieces, Camilla Potts Leonard of Newport and Kendra Smith of Advance; several other nieces, nephews, cousins, and many lifelong friends.

The family would like to express thanks to the staff of Well Care Hospice Care, and to family and friends for the visits, flowers, calls, and cards during Faye’s illness.

A memorial service will be conducted at 2 p.m. Friday, June 23 at Hayworth-Miller Kinderton Chapel with the Rev. Chris Key, pastor of Advance Methodist, officiating. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service. A private inurnment service will be held later at the Columbarium Advance Methodist Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that memorials be made to: Well Care Hospice, 146 Dornach Way, Bermuda Run, NC 27006; or to Advance UMC, PO Box 2021, Advance, NC 27006.
