— MILLMONT — Fay Jeanette (Jones) Zechman, 78, formerly of Millmont, entered into eternal rest on Friday, Jan. 11, 2013, at the Buffalo Valley Lutheran Village, Lewisburg, eight days after her 78th birthday.

Fay was born Jan. 3, 1935, in Shamokin, a daughter of the late Dewey M. and Carrie M (Hooper) Jones. On Jan. 2, 1954. she married Charles E. Zechman, Jr., who preceded her in death five days earlier on Jan. 6, 2013.

Fay attended McClure High School.

She spent the majority of her life as a homemaker and held various jobs throughout her life.

“Fay-Netter” as she was affectionately known by her family was a lifelong member of Lincoln Chapel United Methodist Church, Laurelton, and a very active member of the church choir and other church groups. She was an active participant in the Keystone Walk to Emmaus community with her sister Daun, and was a longtime treasurer of the Millmont West Union Area Lions Club.

Fay was a loving mother, grandmother, sister and friend, and she enjoyed crafting and attending craft shows with her husband. She really enjoyed shopping on the home shopping networks, but her true joys of life were her family, Lipton Tea, and of course chocolate.

She is survived by one son and daughter-in-law, David E. and Linda C. Zechman, of Laurelton; one grandson, Charles R. “Chip” Zechman and his wife, Elizabeth A., of Millmont; one granddaughter, Ava J. Zechman and her husband, Brent D., of Middleburg; one great-grandson, Ridge W. Zechman, of Middleburg; and three brothers and one sister, Kenneth Jones, of Beaver Springs, Percy Jones, of Donalsonville, Ga., Paul Jones, of Herndon, and Daun Klinger, of Mount Pleasant Mills.

She was preceded in death by one brother and one sister, S. Wayne Jones, of Quitman, Ga., and Doris who died at birth.

In accordance with her wishes, there will be no public viewing or services. Private funeral services will be conducted at the convenience of her family at the Lincoln Chapel United Methodist Church, Laurelton, with Pastor Mark Messner officiating.
