Nettie Faye Plunkett, 90, passed away on February 10, 2023. She was born on March 5, 1932, in

Stanton, Texas, to Clyde A. Toon and Mary L. Toon. She was a Hot Springs Village resident for

more than 30 years.

Faye (she rarely used her first name) was married for 50 years and is preceded in death by her

husband, James (Jim) L. Plunkett. Together, they brought up three children, moving frequently

until James (Jim) retired from the Air Force and went into banking in Shreveport, Louisiana.

They lived in Shreveport for many years as their children grew. They moved to Hot Springs

Village in the 1980s.

Faye loved her family, her home, her friends, and many dogs and cats over the years. She was

unbeatable in Scrabble and Upwords, and loved reading, painting, gardening, working

crossword puzzles and engaging in lively discussions. She was quick-witted, highly literate and

intensely loyal to her loved ones and friends, of which she had many. Her home in Hot Springs

Village was filled with family photos, books, flowers, snacks and many loving memories.

Faye is preceded in death by her mother, Mary Toon; her father, Clyde Toon; her husband, Jim

Plunkett; and her brother, Kenneth Toon. She is survived by her sister, Shirley Toon Shelton; her

daughter Jeanne Plunkett Smith and husband Rick Smith; her son, James K. Plunkett, and
