Brenda Fay Davis Wharam, 69, of New Canton, passed peacefully surrounded by her family and many friends on October 23, 2018. She was born October 3, 1949, a daughter of the late Roy M. and Ora Newton Davis. Fay found joy in the simple things in life, particularly flowers. A flower in Fay’s yard might be planted and then moved several times until she located its perfect spot. She also enjoyed tending her vegetable garden, quilting, crocheting and traveling. Fay traveled throughout the United States and the world with friends, traveling to the Holy Land was perhaps her most favorite. Fay was an active member of her church, PCC- Riverside. Fay’s faith in her Lord Jesus brought her immense joy and the realization of life eternal.
She is survived by her loving husband of 50 years, Charles Samuel “Sammy” Wharam; son, Eddie Wharam and his wife, Dawn; grandchildren, Brandon and Cassie Wharam; two sisters, Nancy Sprouse and Mary O’Bier; three brothers, Herman Davis, Haden “Cookie” Davis and Tommy Davis; many nieces, nephews and other family and friends.
