Ellen Faye (Sexton) Moran

September 18, 1940 ~ January 14, 2022 (age 81)


Ms. Ellen Faye Moran, 81, of Cumming, GA was called home to the Lord on the morning of Friday, January 14, 2022. Faye was raised in Farmington Hills, Michigan, and moved to Northern VA when she was 18.  She worked for the Federal Government for over 30 years and became a part-time Realtor in 1986. She retired in 1995 from the Government and followed her children to Georgia in 1998.  Faye loved spending time with her family and good friends. She loved reading, sitting outdoors on her swing, and gardening.  She was known by all as a kind, giving, and compassionate person, who loved her family and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents (Ballard and Eunice Sexton).  She is survived by her children Todd Moran (Jennifer) and Lisa Sullivan, her grandchildren Allison Sullivan, Jack Sullivan, Ashley Moran, and Hannah Moran, her brothers Rick Sexton, Lon Sexton, sister Charlotte Miller and a number of nieces and nephews and great-nieces and nephews.

Her memorial service will be held on February 5, 2022, with visitation beginning at 10:00 a.m. and service at 11:00 a.m. at McDonald and Sons Funeral Home located at 150 Sawnee Drive Cumming GA 30040. A lunch reception will follow the service information will be provided shortly.

For those unable to travel during this time, there will be a live stream of the service. Please go to the funeral home website @ and click on Ellen’s obituary and you will be able to click on view service. The livestream starts about 15 minutes prior to the service.

In lieu of flowers, we have set a memorial scholarship fund for high school seniors who will attend nursing school.  Faye loved the dedication and support she received at the hospital from the nursing team and wanted to give an annual gift to one student each year.
