Davis, Aliene "Rays of sunshine on a cloudy day " is a phrase which describes the effect Aliene K Davis had on people when entering a room. She was accepting of everyone and the kind of person who was concerned whether the family dog was having a nice day. Aliene lost her 12 year battle with multiple recurring breast cancer on November 29, 2012. She is survived by her husband, Dan Davis; son, Dr. Brian Davis & wife, Sharon; son, Dr. Matt Davis & wife, Linda and their children Hannah and Jack; and her brother, John Kinsel. Aliene was born on August 4,1942 at Baylor Hospital in Dallas, Texas. She graduated from Woodrow Wilson High School, and earned a B. A. degree in sociology from the University of North Texas where she was a member of Chi Omega sorority. After college, Aliene joined the Texas Department of Public Welfare where she became a supervisor over 14 case workers. She continued in that job one year after her marriage to Dan Davis in 1969 when home making and parental responsibilities took precedence. Aliene was a wonderful wife and mother. She was a board member on the PTAs of Armstrong Elementary, McCullough Middle School, and Highland Park High School. She served two years as Cub Scout Coordinator for Armstrong Elementary. Aliene was on the board of Chi Omega Alumni Association, and American Association of University Women. She was a member of the Dallas Women's Club, Marianne Scruggs Garden Club, Mary Craig Class, Salvation Army Woman's Auxiliary, and Dallas Symphony Orchestra League. She was a founding member and past president of Park Cities ACLD, and a member of Orton Gillingham Dyslexic Society. At Highland Park Presbyterian Church, Aliene served as corresponding secretary for Women Of The Church, Circle Chairman, Circle Officer, and was a member of Precept Bible Study. The family thanks the physicians and staff at Southwestern Medical School and particularly Judy Devlin, Nurse Practitioner, for their loving care and compassion during her last years. A memorial service for Aliene will be held in the Sanctuary at Highland Park Presbyterian Church at 2:00 pm on Monday, December 10th followed by a reception in Elliott Hall. Visitation will be in the Church Parlor from 4:00 to 6:00 pm on Sunday, December 9th.
