Funeral services for Mrs. Louia Lee Davis, 88, of Tylertown, MS will be held at 1:00 PM on Monday, January 20, 2020 at Capps Chapel with Rev. Justin Knight officiating. Burial will be in the Tylertown Cemetery. Mrs. Davis passed away at Asbury Hospice House in Hattiesburg, Mississippi on Saturday, January 18, 2020 surrounded by her family.
She was born October 6, 1931 to the late Beulah and William Welch of Franklinton Louisiana. She was delivered at 6 months weighing only 3 lbs. and was not expected to live. Thankfully God had different plans, so that today we can celebrate her long and fruitful life of 88 years. She was also preceded in death by her loving husband Frank Davis; and brother Carter Welch.
Mrs. Lee married Frank W. Davis in 1950 and together they made their home in Tylertown Mississippi. Lee worked at Lampton Brother’s and the Livestock Barn part time. She began working at Trustmark Bank for many years after her children started school. She loved working with the wonderful people there and would often comment when she passed by that she wished she could still work there.
Lee was a wonderful cook and loved sewing for her two girls when they were young. She was the heart if their home and always put her husband and children’s needs ahead of her own. She and her husband loved square dancing and were members if the Cream Picture Square Dance club. Some of her greatest accomplishments were rearing her two daughters, being a loving caretaker of her husband after his aneurysm, and spoiling grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was a member of Tylertown Baptist Church where she served God as she sang in the choir, was a member if the Love and Loyalty Sunday school class and served on the bereavement committee.
She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also. And he praises her: “Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all.” Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her works praise her in the gates. Proverbs 31:26-31
Survivors include her two daughters Gail (William) Ratliff and Connie (Troy) Hall; three granddaughters Amy (Dale) Townsend, Melissa (Adam) Bush, and Lacey (Roy) Sisson; two grandsons Adam (Amber) Hall and Landon (Kristin) Ratliff; nine great-grandchildren, along with a host of nieces, nephews, friends, and loving family.
