Pastor Floris Fay Forgey Driskill

February 8, 1915 — January 16, 2014
Pastor Floris Fay Forgey Driskill, better known as “Sister Toot,” was born Feb. 8, 1915, in Berwick. The daughter of Charles and Lillian LeBlanc Forgey, Sister Toot went home to be with Jesus Thursday, Jan. 16, 2014.
In her nearly 99 years, she shared the ministry of Jesus Christ to all she met. If you didn’t know her personally, you probably heard about her. Sister Toot lived a life of faith dedicated to Jesus that spanned generations. Because her life had such an impact and influence on everyone she met, multitudes were saved from the fires of Hell. There is no way to measure the vastness of Sister Toot’s life. We can all rest assured that God has kept a record of the life lived only to honor her Lord. Mere words are inadequate to describe or explain Sister Toot, her actions, her dedication; her love for everyone spoke louder than any description. Sister Toot has been involved in many ministries. She founded “Church of The Open Air” on Chartres Street, New Orleans. Her home and church, Twin City Gospel Temple, which were always open to all in need of prayer, money, food, guidance, counseling, hospital or nursing home visiting, street corner preaching and prison ministry. Sister Toot led many to Jesus, established churches in Haiti, India, Peru, Brazil, Mexico and here in the USA.
Sister Toot is survived by her daughters, Paula and husband, Alvin Willis and Gretchen and her husband, Darrel Bliss; her son, the Rev. Charley and his wife, Lois; her grandchildren, Floris Fay Hebert, Eileen Reinhardt, Mariam DiMaggio, Jodie Horschel, Guyla Bliss, Chris Bliss, Foster Bliss, Aubrey Bliss, Kaylynn Driskill and Jamie Driskill; her 30 great-grandchildren; and her 11 great-great-grandchildren.
Sister Toot is preceded in death by her husband, Aubrey Driskill; her parents, Charles and Lillian Leblanc Forgey; three brothers and three sisters; and two great-granddaughters.
She leaves a legacy that picks up where she left off, continuing in her footsteps, making her sincerest wishes come true; not only her blood kin but everyone who sat under her ministry.
A celebration of a life lived to honor Jesus Christ will begin Sunday, Jan. 19, 2014, at Twin City Gospel Temple at 5 p.m. until, continuing Monday, Jan. 20, 2014, from 9 a.m. until, and on Tuesday, Jan. 21, 2014, with services beginning at 10 a.m. Sister Toot will be laid to rest in the Berwick Cemetery.
