Fayrene had many different names to many different people. She was Nana, Maw Tiller, Precious, and Mom. Maw Tiller was a dispatcher for the Russell County Sheriff’s Department for 20 years. When she was not working, she loved her family and spent hours on the phone probably eating a bag of Lays potato chips, talking to her friends.
