Bettye Jean Davis Obituary
SHANNON – Bettye Jean Davis was born Oct. 23, 1947, in Chickasaw County. She was the third of eight children born to Doris and Eugene Davis Sr. She received her education in the Chickasaw County School System. After graduating she enrolled at Lane College in Jackson, Tenn. She quickly decided that higher education was not for her so she began a career in the industrial environment.
She confessed her faith in Christ at an early age and later became a member of Faith Revival Center, now known as God's House of Prayer. She diligently worked in the church for over 30 years. During her tenure at the church she served as booking manager and member of the Voice of Holiness, Mass Choir director, youth director, Program Committee member and Board of Trustees member. She had a passion for singing and loved spending time with both her family and church family.
She retired from Furniture Brands after 20 years of service when her health began to fail in 2009. She became a member of the Tupelo Chapter of Sisters Network and served as a proud member while volunteering until her health further deteriorated.
She leaves to cherish her memories one son, Ron (Yolanda) Davis, and two grandsons, De'Von and Jamal, of Tupelo; two sisters, Barbara Davis Bruce and Effie Davis Robertson; three brothers, Eugene (Rosa) Davis Jr., Tommy (Sharon) Davis, all of Shannon, and Rickey (Millicent) Davis of Tupelo; a host of nieces and nephews; and her spiritual goddaughter, Chiquita Allen. She is preceded in death by her parents, Doris and Eugene Davis Sr., and two brothers, Frankie and Rinnie Davis.
Services will be at 11 a.m. Friday, Aug. 1, 2014, at God's House of Prayer in Belden. Burial will be in Lee Memorial Park. N.L. Jones Funeral Directors is in charge of arrangements.
Visitation will be from 4 to 6 p.m. today at the funeral home.
