Georgia Faye also enjoyed floating the Buffalo River, riding horses, looking at fall foliage, going to family reunions, and hunting bargains at any yard sale or flea market she could find.

Georgia Faye is survived by her seven children: Pama Walker (Joe) of Southside, Curtis Reed, Jr. of Southside, David Reed (Brenda) of Willis, TX, Robby Reed (Debbie) of Batesville, Bobby Reed (Tammie) of Willis, TX, Jami Smotherman (Jody) of Rosie, and Mike Reed (LaSondra) of Willis, TX. She is also survived by seventeen grandchildren, seventeen great-grandchildren, and one sister, Bobbie Jane Huddleston of Springdale.

She is preceded in death by her parents, her loving husband of 56 years: Curtis Alvin Reed, Sr., and eleven siblings.
