Willa Faye Wesson was born February 12, 1929 in Friendsville, TN and was raised by her Grandparents. She enjoyed roller skating with her girlfriends up and down the hills of the beautiful Northeast Tennessee countryside. As a cheerleader for the Friendsville Falcons, Willa Faye rallied the fans during the 1946 State Basketball Championship. Her first job at the Friendsville Grocery was perfect for her because she was always interested in other’s stories. She married the love of her life, Oscar Malcolm Finger, on March 11, 1950 They moved to Tullahoma in 1952 with baby Don. Art was born that same year and her greatest joy of being a wife and mother of two boys was fulfilled. When the boys were grown, she worked outside the home as a physician’s scheduler at Harton Hospital. Once Malcolm retired, they enjoyed travels to California, Nevada and points along the way. She was always happy, however, to return home to Tullahoma.

As a Charter member of Wesley Heights United Methodist Church, Willa Faye has always considered this church family as her own. She was a long-time children’s Sunday School teacher, active with Vacation Bible School, a member of the United Methodist Women, and a member of Gold and Silver Keens. She was loved by her church family as well as being an inspiration to many.
