Bertie Hair Obituary

With profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother and grandmother, Bertie Faye “Mama Faye” Hair. She peacefully left this world on October 1st, 2023, surrounded by her family.

Born on July 11th, 1940, her journey was one of nurturing, educating, creating, and inspiring—a life dedicated to enriching the lives of those around her.  Bertie was a technology teacher at Cope Area Career Center and Barnwell Area Career Center. With patience and dedication, she empowered her students to reach their full potential, instilling in them a lifelong love of learning.  In her role as a seamstress, Bertie was a true artist. Her sewing machine was her paintbrush, and fabrics were her canvas. Her crochet talents were equally astounding. Her creations were tokens of love and comfort, treasured by those fortunate enough to receive them.

Bertie Faye Hair is survived by her children Monty Nix, Jr. (Kim) of North, SC, Monica Rivers (Tom) of Eutawville, SC, and Sheila McIntosh (Doug) of Cordova, SC. She had eight grandchildren, Monty Nix III (Madeline), Ashley Nix, Melissa Janney (Don), Ashley Heineck (Andy), Hannah Dixon, Regan Dixon, Jourdan McIntosh and Hunter McIntosh. Bertie had seven great-grandchildren, Tag Nix IV, Maddy Clay Nix, Millie Jean Janney, Sawyer Janney, Flip Heineck, Lily Heineck and Elias McIntosh. Bertie has two surviving siblings, Billy Delk (Janet) and Judy Freeman (Kenneth).

She was predeceased by her husband, Albert Hair, her parents, Wilbur and Bertie Delk, and her sister Cheryl Hartzog (Denny).

The funeral services will be held 11:00 o’clock AM, Wednesday, October 4, 2023, at Double Pond Baptist Church in Blackville, SC with burial in the church cemetery.  The family receive friends from 6:00 o’clock PM to 8:00 o’clock PM on Tuesday, October 3, 2023, at Folk Funeral Home in Williston, SC.
