Mary Jane Baxter DAVIS Obituary
DAVIS, Mary Jane Baxter Mary Jane Baxter Davis, 91, of Atlanta, GA. died December 28, 2017 at her home in Atlanta. Mrs. Davis was the daughter of Herbert Baxter and Mary Nesbitt. She is predeceased by her loving husband, Charles Lee Davis of 54 years, daughter Patricia Jane Grubbs, (Ray) living in Atlanta and daughter Lavonda Lee McDaniel (Paul), living in Florida, granddaughter Catlin Marie Bedwell, grandson Christopher Slade Grubbs (Renee), great-grand-daughter Harper Reagan Grubbs, all living in the Atlanta area. Mrs. Davis worked as an X-ray Technician for several years. She then switched careers by working as a bookkeeper for various small businesses. Upon marrying Charles Davis, a Navy Chief, she quit work and never looked back. Traveling with her husband throughout the United States and as far as the Philippine Islands gave her experiences she never dreamed could happen. In recent years, with the technology of social media (Facebook), Mrs. Davis became known as "Momma Jane". She told her daughter to "write a book and make people laugh" knowing her Alzheimer's would be challenging. Many have enjoyed her wit and sense of humor. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends. Mrs. Davis's life will be celebrated on her birthday, Sunday, January 21, 2018 at Peachtree Christian Church, 1580 Peachtree St., NW, Atlanta, GA. 30309, and Rev. James Bell officiating. When the weather is much warmer, Mrs. Davis will join her late husband in the Georgia National Cemetery in Canton, Georgia Momma Jane never cared much for the cold!
