Patricia Faye Maness Gaulden,84, went home to be with the Lord on Monday, July 17, 2023 at her residence surrounded by her family.  A native of Guilford County, she was born June 10, 1939 to the late Bertha Mae Maness and was the wife of 66 years to James “J.W.” or “Jay” William Gaulden of the home.

Faye was a member of McLeansville Baptist Church for 62 years and a member of the Adult 3 Sunday School Class.  She also worked as a nursery worker and a church clerk.  For many years, she co-owned and operated Carolina Marble Manufacturing Company alongside her husband. She was an accomplished cook and baker and was especially known for her delicious chocolate cakes.  Faye enjoyed television game shows like Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy and would often be found reading or solving her daily newspaper crossword puzzles in her spare time.  She was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother who cherished time with her family.  She will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
