April 2, 1880 - March 13, 1978
|Mrs. Cecil Beadle Faulk, the widow of the late Rev. J. W. Faulk, a member of the Louisiana Annual Conference, was born April 2, 1880, and died on March 13, 1978. The Rev. Faulk was a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church and served in Louisiana from that conference until we united in 1939. He and Mrs. Faulk had met at the Ebenezer church, south of Crowley, La. They were married there and this is the place where both are buried.
Mrs. Faulk was a native of Lafayette, La., and a member of a large Christian family named Beadle. Her family was a blessing to many people and a bulwark of strength in the Methodist Church. Mrs. Faulk was a great Christian, a “letter sent from Christ.” Her last words to me were, “I know my life will soon be ended here, but I am not afraid. ‘In my Father’s house are many mansions.’ I have a place to go.”
Born to this couple were four children: Chace, Rhoda, Beverly, and Capt. Roland Faulk, the only surviving child, who lives in San Diego, California.
Funeral service was conducted by her pastor, Rev. Terry Willis, assisted by Rev. Charles Humphreys and Rev. D. W. Poole.
