Janet Marie Davis, 75, died Friday at home. Visitation is Wednesday, 5-7 at W.T. Shumake & Daughters Funeral Home 3815 Newburg Road.
Janet Marie Davis was born November 28, 1945 in Louisville, Kentucky, lovingly raised by Johnnie and Ophelia Gray. She was the oldest of five children.
Janet was a product of, and educated, in the Jefferson County Public School System.
At an early age, Janet accepted Christ. Later in life, she became a member of Mt. Zion Baptist Church, where she played an active role serving on the Greeter’s Ministry, and on the Usher Board. She was known to occasionally “spoil” the Pastor, and provide him with her famous and delicious Turnip Greens. These were greens that could not be resisted.
Janet was united in Holy Matrimony to William C. Davis, Jr., and to this union, four children were born.
Bowling, a competitive game of cards, leisure traveling, mouth-watering cooking, and listening to “old school music”, were Janet’s pastime activities that were entertainment for her. She also enjoyed socializing and being with friends as a member of the O’Hett’s Club and The Derby Fillies.
Janet was preceded in death by her parents, Johnnie and Ophelia Gray; husband, William C. Davis, Jr.; sister, Shirley Miles, and brother, Walter Miles.
On Friday, December 25, 2020, Janet was called home to be with her Heavenly Father. She leaves to cherish her memories, daughters, Michelle McKinney, Denice Davis; sons, Brian Davis, William C. Davis III; son in-law, James McKinney; daughter in-law, Melissa Davis; caregiver and daughter in-law, Shannon Parker; sisters, Mary Miles, Patricia Mills, a companion of 16 years, Charles Williamson; 12 grandchildren; 9 great grandchildren; 2 great-great grandchildren; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
