September 11, 2011 is a date that is remembered for the loss of many heroes. September 11, 2020 will be indelibly etched on our hearts for the loss of Our hero, Gail Farris. We are so thankful God saw fit to let us borrow her. We most certainly know how blessed we were and are.

After a brief illness, Gail was peacefully escorted by angels to paradise surrounded by her family. We have no doubt she was greeted with a host of family and friends.

She leaves us to mourn her temporary separation, but we have faith and blessed assurance that we will meet again.

She is preceded in death by her father, James Harrell Herndon; her mother, Juanita Phillips Herndon; her father and mother-in-law, Cecil and Shirley Farris; and her sister-in-law, Sharon Farris.

She is survived by her husband, Doyle Farris; her son, Matthew & (Alyssa) Farris; her daughter, Lindsey Farris; her grandchild, Ty James Farris; her special aunt and uncle, Glenn & (Evelyn) Koerber; her brother-in-law, Darrell Farris; her nephew, Dustin & (Amy) Farris; her niece, Alyssa & (Cody) Jenkins; and her great nieces and nephews, Austin, Kylie, Hagan, and Gage.

Employed by Sumner County Board of Education as a library assistant at Station Camp Elementary where she poured her heart into many lives of kids and thought of the staff as family.

We appreciate your desire to show your love. We request no flowers as this is Gail’s wishes, but if you are inclined to honor her memory, Ty would appreciate you honoring his Grammy by contributing to his educational fund, these can be made at Woodard Funeral Home or on our website
