Shawn Lea Funeral Home - Scotland Neck Obituary

Adlean J. Davis, daughter of the late Edward Lee Howard and Anna George Howard, was born in Mecklenburg County, VA on November 20, 1947.

On the morning of Thursday, February 11, 2021, the Lord Jesus gently delivered her from all sickness and suffering and took her home "where there shall be no more crying, pain or death, for the former things are passed away.”

Adlean, (better known as "Weasel") was preceded in death by her parents, Edward Lee (“Ed Lee”) and Anna George Howard, beloved son, Anthony Jones, and brother, Thomas J. George.

Adlean was baptized at an early age and joined Roanoke United Christian Church in Boyton, VA where she remained a member until her death.

Adlean was educated in the public schools of Warren County, NC. She worked in the Prince George’s County Public School System in Maryland, before coming back to North Carolina to work at Bracey Truck Stop in Bracey, Virginia and Chex Truck stop in Middleburg, North Carolina. Before getting sick, she was employed as a Home Health Aide.

Adlean loved her husband,Thomas endlessly. In addition, she dearly loved her family.

Known as the “Flea Market Queen” “Weasel” loved to shop and talk.  She would call you up and say “Hello, what you doing?”  Then she would just talk, talk, talk.  Her conversations, most of the time, would end up like this: “Let’s do or let’s go.”  She had two quotes when she couldn’t give you an answer: (1) “Look to the man upstairs” and (2) “You better stick to the man with the plan.”

We believe that on February 11, 2021, she heard the man with the plan (Jesus) call her name, and she whispered to him, “Precious Lord, take my hand, lead me on, and let me stand. I’m tired, I am weak, I am worn.  I been through the storm, through the night, lead me on to the light.  Take my hand, precious Lord and lead me home.  I’m Ready.”

She leaves to cherish her memories her devoted husband, Thomas Davis of the home; two step-daughters,  Mariah Jones (James)  and Shirley Faulcon, both of Boydton, VA; three grandchildren, Lakesha Jiggetts and Danielle Jiggetts of Creedmoor, NC and Gerald Hargrove of Warrenton, NC; two step-grandchildren, Clarissa Davis and Nakiah Woody;  eighteen great-grandchildren; five brothers, Eddie Howard of Wise, NC, David Howard of Riverdale, MD, Daniel Howard (Jennie) of Kinston, NC, Malvin Howard (Mary) of Gaithersburg, MD, and Alvin Howard (Helen) of Hyattsville, MD; four sisters,  Hazel Falcon (John) of Norlina, NC, Carolyn Green (Richard) of Warrenton, NC, Evert Russell of Macon, NC, and Eleanor Bullock of Wise, NC; one uncle,  Clarence Howard of Philadelphia, PA; two aunts, Rosa  Howard, of Warrenton, NC and Dorothy George of Boston, MA; one great- aunt, Margaret Tubbs of Franklin, VA; two brothers- in-law, William Davis (Cornelia), and James Davis;  one sister-in-law, Jennie Townes;  a special friend,  Bonnie Newman; a special nephew she raised like her own son, Brandon Blanchard; a special niece she raised like her own daughter, Lakesha Blanchard; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends. 

Graveside service was held Feb. 20, 2021, at 1:00 PM  at Roanoke Chapel UCC Boydton, VA. Shawn Lea Funeral Home of Littleton handled the service. Call us at 252 586 5566.
