Faye “Pat” Lofton

Published 8:33 am Friday, January 5, 2024

Mrs. Faye “Pat” Lofton, 71, of Brookhaven, MS, passed from this life on January 4, 2024, at her home. She was born on August 9, 1952, in Lincoln County, Mississippi to Floyd and Ruthie Lofton.

Mrs. Lofton loved her family — especially her grandbabies; she loved spending time with them and took joy in every picture and video of them that was sent to her. She was as an avid New Orleans Saints fan; when she wasn’t watching the Saints, she enjoyed Andy Griffith and old westerns — especially Gunsmoke. She also always enjoyed working to expand her collections of trolls and eagles.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Larry Lofton, and by her parents and a beloved step-mother, Lillian Lofton.
