Born Grace Burrows, Mother was a real beauty by any measurement. Strengthened and humbled through rigorous work and West Texas farm life, Mother's meager beginnings would ultimately evolve into the American Dream.
Marrying an equally handsome and humble career military officer, Joseph Faulkner, married life would prove to be an unimaginable experience. Traversing the landscapes and castles of post-World War II Europe, Mother played bridge with other officers' wives on the train, skated in the Alps and ministered to war-weary Germans through her selfless acts of faith, generosity and compassion. During her role as an officer's wife, family was established and rooted through the birth of Paul (Germany), Terri (Louisiana) and Linda (Washington, DC).
Post-military retirement found the Faulkners in the tropics of Miami. Mother and Daddy continued to play bridge, but Mother also became quite the bowler -- being on competitive leagues for a number of years. She was always active at church and schools. Whether a chief or an Indian, Mother was always industrious and dependable. She loved to drive, and she drove the church van to pick-up attendees for the weekly ladies' Bible study. She was always the top "go to" Mom for field trips, as we were the only family on campus which had a third seat in the station wagon!
As life rolled along, children married and moved away. The empty nesters, however, were scarcely alone! Trips to Hawaii, New Zealand, Australia, Israel and Alaska kept these lovebirds perpetually entertained! All of this in addition to roadtrips to visit family and attend reunions of all varieties.
After Hurricane Andrew hit Miami, their penultimate destination was San Antonio. There Mother and Daddy joined a country club, bridge club and Northside Church of Christ. Their deepest and most enduring friendships came from the church membership. After 22 years in San Antonio and a myriad of health issues for both Mother and Daddy, they relocated to Houston.
While in Houston, there would be many family gatherings at The Forum senior living facility. Routine visits from children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren were a continual delight for both of them.
Looking back, I see for Mother a life rich with love, family, faith, integrity and industry. Mother was always on the move -- caring for the man, family and community that she loved. The grit and determination which was instilled genetically, as well as practically, served her very well in life. Never seeking the limelight, Mother always stood out through her natural beauty, congeniality and unsolicited willingness to roll up her sleeves and pitch in.
Described as a "cotton pickin' beauty," and indeed she truly was -- in face, in form, but predominantly, in spirit.
