Naioma Faye Compton

Devoted mother, caring wife Naioma Faye Compton, née Stone, died unexpectedly Monday, Sept. 3, after suffering a massive stroke at her Ellisville, Missouri home. She was 82. Reared in Fairfield, she was married in 1958 to Clark Compton of Teague, who survives her. A graduate of Fairfield High School, Faye earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Houston in Houston and embarked on a journalism career as a writer, editor, and photographer in her native Texas after her marriage. She retired for a time after the birth of the first of her three children. Several years later, she resumed her journalism career with the creation of a public relations/advertising business, Compton & Compton, which she operated from her home with her husband, a former several-term Ellisville alderman and long-time teacher in the business school of the University of Missouri, St. Louis. She and her husband first made their home in Denton, while Clark, an Air Force veteran, was earning his degree in business at North Texas State University
