Peggy Malpas Davis went to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on Monday March 21st after fighting a very brave and lengthy battle with Dementia and other health conditions. She handled Dementia with grace, strength and a great sense of humor. There will be a celebration of Life Service at Porterfield Memorial United Methodist Church on Sunday, April 10, 2022 at 3:00 pm. The family will receive friends Sunday beginning at 2:00 pm in the Church Parlor.
Mrs. Davis was born on August 13, 1936, to Merlin and Inell Mims Malpas in Adel, GA. She attended Nursing school at Saint Luke’s Hospital, now the Mayo Clinic, in Jacksonville, Florida. Soon after graduation, she married her husband of 64 years, Shelly Davis.
She had a heart for service that included her nursing career and her involvement in her church and community. As a member of Porterfield Memorial United Methodist Church, she served as a Sunday school teacher, volunteered in the Whiz Kids outreach program, actively participated in and served in the UMW, and, along with her husband, was a committed member of the Key Sunday School class. She also enjoyed weekly cards with several wonderful church friends for years.
She loved viewing her flowers as well as the many species of birds her feeders would attract.
She was a master crafter and a great seamstress, gardener and decorator. She enjoyed creating beautiful things including seasonal arrangements for family and friends and hundreds of other creative crafts.
She loved her Lord, her family, and her friends, and made a lasting impact on the lives of many.
The family sends special thanks to the Intrepid Home Health team who cared for her and shared her warmth and sense of humor and to her beloved caregivers, Sheila Rivers, Nettie Worthy and Louise Byrd who cared for her with love.
She is survived by her husband Shelly, her daughter Debbie, her son Neil and her grandchildren, Peyton, Carson and Hunter Davis. Her beloved son Doug predeceased her.
