She was born on August 26, 1922 in Geneva County. Mrs. Davis was a dedicated Christian member of Slocomb First Baptist Church and a member of Lydia’s Sunday School Class. She took great pride of being a faithful and loving wife, a caring mother, grandmother, great grandmother and was a friend to many. At a tender young age she married the love of her life, a World War II soldier, the late Jerry Davis. She was employed at Van Heusen Company for over 20 years. Her best lesson, the one she modeled for us, was that a selfless life devoted to family and others is the highest example of God’s love.
She was preceded in death by her husband, her parents: Mathias Franklin and Dellie McDonald Crutchfield.
