Our angel, Faye Stewart Leggins, commonly referred to as "Oh That Faye" received her wings on Wednesday, January 6, 2021. This shining star first graced life's stage on June 25, 1954 in New Orleans, LA to the late Anderson Clarence Stewart and Sacremento Gray Stewart. She is survived by her daughter, Kristen Leggins Jackson; son-in-love, Lester Jackson; granddaughters, Kamryn and Karsyn Jackson. Also survived by her sister, Marilyn Stewart Riley; sister-in-love, Marie Stewart as well as a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. In addition to her parents, Faye was also preceded in death by her brother, Donald Clarence Stewart. After graduating from Warren Easton Senior High School, completing her Bachelor of Science from Louisiana State University and a Masters of Education from the University of New Orleans, Faye navigated a 34 year career with the Orleans, Baton Rouge and Caddo Parish School systems as a Speech Therapist and Educational Diagnostician. Faye reveled in retired life spending her free time with her family, friends and especially her grandchildren. She enjoyed attending festivals (Each and Every one in NOLA and beyond), traveling and simply having a good time. Faye loved talking to anyone and everyone …never meeting a stranger. She was a kind soul who always found the good in everyone, helping anyone in need. Faye was a fun-loving spirit that kept an infectious smile on her face that will be deeply missed by all!
