Virginia Pearson Davis was born in January 30, 1924 in Big Bay, Arkansas to Robert Lee and Lucy Morton Pearson. She died at her home in Montgomery TX, on March 13 at the age of 93. She was preceded in death by her loving husband of 47 years, Arnold Davis; son, Robert Arnold Davis; and daughter, Laura Melinda Pickens. She is survived by daughters, Janis Lee Davis of Conroe and Becky Buck and husband Doug of Conroe; granddaughter Kristine Canestorp and husband Eric of Montgomery; grandson Brian Hale and wife Celeste of Montgomery; and five great- grandchildren: Andy Geiser, Kylie Canestorp, Owen Canestorp, Isaac Russ, and Julia Russ. She leaves numerous nieces and nephews and many friends of Benui Baptist Church, where she was a life-long member.

Virginia grew up in a family of 6 children. At the age of 4, the family moved to Montgomery. It was not easy living on a farm during the Great Depression. She started working in the fields with her two older brothers at a very young age. As she grew older, she was able to help her mother with the cooking, canning, and housework, as well as helping care for her younger siblings. Virginia graduated from Montgomery High School in 1941, where she was Valedictorian in her class of 15 students. After attending Business College in Palestine, TX, she moved to Port Arthur to work for the Texas Company (later known as Texaco). At the time, the entire United States was in total agreement in their support of the war effort. It was Port Arthur where she met Arnold. They were married in 1946 after knowing each other for only 3 months. After raising her children, Virginia went to work at the Gulf Employees Credit Union, where she made many life-long friends. When they both retired in 1980, Virginia and Arnold moved to Montgomery, where they were active members of the Montgomery-Dobbin Lions Club.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Conroe Salvation Army or to the Montgomery County Food Bank. Visitation will be held Wednesday, March 15, 2017 from 5:00pm to 7:00pm at Cashner Funeral Home. Graveside services conducted by Brother John Lockwood will be at Mt. Pleasant cemetery in Montgomery on Thursday, March 16, 2017 at 10:00am
