Faith Smith Radford, 73, of Floyd, slipped peacefully into the arms of her Saviour, Jesus Christ, on Thursday, December 27, 2012. She was born on November 19, 1939 to Ethel Smith of Floyd and the late Clifton Smith.

Faith was a longtime member of the Floyd Church of the Nazarene where she served her Lord faithfully. She is preceded in death by her husband of 55 years, Uriah Nolen Radford and her son, Johnny Nolen Radford.

Faith will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her daughter, Rosie Henninger of Floyd; three very precious granddaughters, Holly Henninger Showalter and husband, Josh, Amber Radford Peterson and husband, Joshua, Kayla Radford Spencer and husband, Timmy, and her great-grandson, Shane Spencer, and daughter-in-law, Evangeline Radford of Lynchburg; her sisters, Nila Gray and Betty Tucker and husband, Jim of Floyd; her sisters-in-law, Virginia and Joe Anderson, PeeWee Leffingwell and JoAnne and Gary Rivers all of Richmond; two nephews, Gary Spence and Shawn Hilton (Jessica and Addison), a niece, Kristy Bowman and husband, Keith, and Kaylen, and Marissa Puckett and husband, Patrick, and a special cousin, Peggy Vaughn of North Carolina; and her special church family who meant so much to her.

Faith’s wishes were that there be no viewing. Her ashes will be buried with her husband and son at their pond where they spent so many happy times together. There will be a celebration of Faith’s life at the Floyd Church of the Nazarene on Sunday, January 6, 2013 at 3:00 p.m. with Pastor Steve Roberson officiating. There will be no visitation at the funeral home.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Floyd Church of the Nazarene for outreach in the community or New River Carilion Hospice Program.

The family wishes to thank everyone for their kindness during this difficult time.
