Chloie Mae Farley

Chloie Mae Farley, age 84, of Whitby, went to be with the Lord on Monday, October 22, 2012. She passed following a long illness, surrounded by loved ones.

Born on June 2, 1928, she was the daughter of the late Andrew Johnson Farley and Luzanie Cox Farley.

Chloie left behind her a legacy of love, compassion, and unmatched devotion to each individual with whom she shared her life. She was the number one fan for each of her children, and grandchildren. Chloie loved each of them unconditionally and equally; never showing favoritism to anyone, and always encouraging them to do right by one another and by the Lord.

Chloie was always a strong, unfailingly quick-witted woman, respectful wife, loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, cousin, aunt, and friend. She embraced each of her roles and touched the lives of those around her. She radiated love, and taught others to love. She was faithful to the Lord and her family.

Chloie loved quilting, cooking and taking care of her family. Her door was always open, and there was always food on the table. No one could go hungry at Chloie’s house- she took care of everyone. No matter the hour, she would tell her visitors to “stay a while. We’ll have fresh biscuits in a few minutes.” She was the epitome of the virtuous woman and her children have indeed risen up to call her blessed. We claim comfort knowing we shall see you again in a better place that God has prepared for those who believe.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her first husband, Oris Lilly, her second husband, Edward Farley, by brothers Chester, Lonnie, Virgil, Carl, and Beecher, and by sisters Annie, Ruby, Opal, Evelyn, and infant twin sisters.

She is deeply loved and missed by her surviving family which includes one sister Irene Lilly of Coal City; one daughter Frances Okes and her husband Joe of Whitby; six sons,  Oris Lee Lilly and his wife Joyce of Cool Ridge, Otis Farley and his wife Theresa of London, England, Lacy Farley and his wife Melissa of Cool Ridge, Thomas Farley and his wife Tammy of Cool Ridge, Charles Farley of Whitby, and Harold Farley and his wife Sandra of Coal City; 15 grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren, and many other special family members and friends whom she counted as family.

Funeral services will be conducted to Celebrate The Life Of Chloie Farley on Friday October 26, 2012 at 3 p.m. at the Rose and Quesenberry Funeral Home Shady Spring Chapel with Rev. Ernie Junior Moye officiating. Burial will follow at the Lilly-Crews Cemetery at Nimitz.
