location-icon

Suffolk, VA

On February 18, 2024, Nina Faye Harrell Askew lost her battle with breast cancer. Faye was born on January 7, 1946 to the late Raleigh and Nettie Harrell in Ahoskie, NC. She was the ninth of eleven children. She was predeceased in death by her husband of 53 years, Foy “Strawberry” Askew, and her daughter, Deborah. Faye married Foy in 1964 and they moved to Suffolk in 1966. She began her professional career at Planters Peanuts, then on to Starky-Matthews (later known as Tidewater Wholesalers), Virginia Peanut and finally for the last 30 years she loved working for the Western Tidewater Community Services Board. She was active in many community events and was always the first to volunteer. In 1968 she began bowling on a Tuesday night duckpin league and from those Tuesday nights she developed many lifelong friendships. She was always the first to support her kids, siblings, nieces, nephews, neighbors, and all of her friends in all of their endeavors, always there at the game with her cow bell, school colors and the loudest voice in the stands. The one thing that Faye loved was being at the center of the room in the middle of or most of the time leading the fun and creating laughter in the room. No one loved to have fun more than Faye. She has been leading the Harrell family for years by taking on the roles of organizer, communicator, caregiver and countless other roles to her mother and many of her siblings in their time of need. She always wanted to make sure that each generation stayed connected to the next. When anyone had a question about when something happened, what date was anyone’s birthday or place and time of any event the answer was always “Go ask Faye”. She was the encyclopedia of our family. Faye is survived by her son, David Askew (Joanne Wunderlich), and daughter, Dianne Telford (Luke); grandchildren, Chloe Tschudy (Jacob), Ethan Telford (Katie Tolliver), Paisleigh Pelot (Andrew), Keegan Telford, Joseph Askew, and Claire Askew; great grandchildren, Olivia, Brielle, Caleb, Dahvie, and Jackson; and sisters, Lucy Paul and Eleanor Runfola. There are a ton of nieces and nephews and grand nieces and nephews that loved them some Faye. Faye's celebration of life service will be 2:00p, Friday, February 23, 2024 at Parr Funeral Home & Crematory with Pastor Rich Meiser officiating. Visitation will be from 7-8:00p, Thursday, February 22, 2024 at the funeral home. We would like to thank the staff of Sentara Obici Hospital for how well she was cared for. The teams on 1 North, Step Down, 1 South, and 3 North, along with the Care team provided an excellent level of care. Thank you to Virginia Oncology for the added years we had after her initial diagnosis. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Boy Scout Troop 1 – Suffolk, VA and The American Cancer Society. As the saying goes: Faye has left the building!

Dr. John "Jack" Lyle

Mar 29, 1951 - Feb 18, 2024

location-icon

Suffolk, VA

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Dr. John “Jack” Lyle on February 18, 2024 in Suffolk, Virginia. Born in Portland, Oregon in 1951, Jack enjoyed ice skating at the Lloyd Centre as a young boy. He spent his high school years running cross country at Grant High School when he was not repairing the Lyle brothers’ collection of Fiat cars, which required regular trips to the junkyard. Jack developed an interest in science early and was awarded the high school Physics award. He enrolled at the University of Oregon where he focused his energies on premedical studies as much as one could during the late 1960’s and early 70’s residing in a fraternity-like cooperative, the Campbell Club. He also found time to explore interests such as sculpture, music, and sailing. Most importantly, he started dating the love of his life, Carol, known since childhood, with whom he would share the rest of his journey. He stayed in Portland for medical school and ultimately chose to pursue his passion for head and neck surgery at the University of Virginia. During this time, they welcomed two sons and settled in Suffolk. Dr. Lyle served the Hampton Roads community as the President of Ear, Nose, and Throat Associates of Tidewater over many years. Members have said he was a lively contributor to the Suffolk Rotary Club. Dr. Lyle was also a long-time member and served as President of the Tri County Medical Society. He enjoyed sailing in the York River with his family and later roaming his Duchal farm acreage near Franklin. A man of many skills, he taught himself to play the bagpipes, which were frequently requested for public events, including his son’s own wedding. Despite fighting dementia in his final years, he will forever be remembered as a great father, an enthusiastic story teller, compassionate physician, and loving husband. He is predeceased by his parents; James Lyle and Joan Stinnett; and brother, Jerry. Jack is survived by his loving wife of 50 years, Carol; sons, Patrick Lyle (wife Amy), and Dr. Scott Lyle (wife Ngan); granddaughters, Kara and Allison; grandsons, Sean and Thomas; brother, Jim; and sister, Judy. The family is grateful for the care and support of Dr. and Mrs. Howard Hightower. Services will be private.
