July 21, 1958 - November 30, 2021
Charlotte Faye Thomas was born on July 21, 1958 in Lincoln Park, Michigan at Outer Drive Hospital to the union of Odelia and John Thomas, Sr., both who proceeded her in death. Faye confessed her life to Christ at an early age at New Bethlehem Missionary Baptist Church under the leadership of the late Reverend Lawrence Thomas and was a member of The Greater Bethlehem Missionary Baptist Church under Reverend Randolph Thomas. As a lifelong resident of the Ecorse, Michigan community, Faye spent many of her summers with her family in Opelika and Salem, Alabama. Faye was the true definition of a people person and loved everyone, especially her family. Faye graduated from Ecorse High School in 1976. In September of 1976, Faye and Robert Jackson welcomed their only child, Robert Antonio Thomas. Faye loved her son with all her heart and took pride in boosting about her son and grandchildren. Faye began practicing hair styles on her dad and brother while still in high school. Recognizing her gift, Faye’s mother built a full beauty salon in her basement on 14th street in Ecorse, Michigan where Faye began to build her clientele. She went on to graduate cosmetology school and continued her career as a beautician for more than 40 years. Faye had a love for nature and all animals. She was very creative and enjoyed painting, crafting, and rummaging. Faye had a niche for finding the value and bringing out the beauty in everything and everyone she touched. For the past 18 years, Faye has enjoyed a wonderful life with her loving husband, Brian Burgess. Faye and Brian enjoyed hanging with their granddaughters Jaidyn and Avouri and spending as much time as possible with family and friends. Faye and Brian also enjoyed traveling, spending much of their time together in Florida. Faye suddenly and unexpectantly departed this life on November 30, 2021 in her home in Ecorse, Michigan, leaving a void that can never be filled.
