Fannie Skiles

Fannie Skiles, 94, of Atlanta, Georgia, originally from Charleston West Virginia, left this earth peacefully on June 11. She was preceded in death by her husband of 72 years, Jim (Bill) Skiles, brothers Frank, Fred, Clarence, and Bob, and sister Flora Mae. She is survived by her son Greg and his wife Candace of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, sister’s-in-law LaRisa, Freda, Maxine, and Rita, many cousins and their families, and friends too numerous to mention.

Fannie was truly ahead of her time as a saleslady, accountant, and, finally, part-owner of Lincoln Jewelers in Charleston, West Virginia. Her and Jim’s greatest enjoyment, however, came from the many cruises they took together and spending time with family at the beach at Kiawah Island, South Carolina. Speaking of those cruises, for many years Fannie worked aboard-ship twice yearly (usually for Princess Cruise Lines) in several capacities, especially sales and banking. Her “feistiness” is best highlighted when one cruise director gently suggested she may be nearing the end of her eligibility for employment, she “gently” changed her birthdate on the next application and was able to continue working for several more years.

While a resident of Calvin Court in Buckhead, Fannie was an active member of the Ladies Auxiliary of Piedmont Hospital for many years. She was also very committed to her faith as an active member of the Cathedral of Christ the King church in Buckhead.

Arrangements were handled by Georgia Funeral Care and Cremation Services of Ackworth, Georgia. Greg and Candace would like to thank the physicians, nurses, and staff at Piedmont Hospital in Buckhead, Vitas Healthcare, and Signature Healthcare in Marietta for their loving care of Fannie in her final months. A memorial service will be scheduled later in Charleston, West Virginia to celebrate the life of Fannie and her husband Jim.
