Remembering Dorothy "Mother" Davis


Dorothy Mae Davis was a caring wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend. She left this world on August 18th, 2021, at age 90.
She was born in Houston, TX to Robert Grover and Leitha Crocker on December 18th, 1930. Dorothy gave her life to Christ at a young age and was baptized at Saints Chapel Church of God and Christ. She attended Phyllis Wheatley High school, and shortly after married her husband, George Davis, on October 26th, 1946. Together, they had eight children: Leslie Eugene Davis, Rosie Marie Martin (Milton), James Lee Davis, George Davis Jr., Bernice Louise Davis, Ronald Davis, Robert Wayne Davis, Jacqueline Faye Washington (Stephon).
Dorothy loved spending time with her family. Her greatest joy was raising and watching her grandchildren. She was a skilled homemaker and filled her home with love, warmth, and laughter. Although she was a woman of few words, she spread her love and wisdom through Ryon's Addition. She was affectionately known as "Muh" or Mother because she was a mother figure to any and everyone and had a sassy sense of humor. She was known for her fashions, jewelry, gorgeous hair, and red nails. Not only was she known for her physical beauty, but Mother was also beautiful from within, with a kind , gentle and loyal spirit. 

She's proceeded in death by her husband, George, and three sons George III, Leslie, and James. She leaves her legacy to her children Rosie Marie, Bernice Louise Ronald, Robert Wayne, and Jacqueline Faye. She leaves behind her Twelve grandchildren, eleven great-grandchildren, two great-great-grandchildren, one sibling, a host of cousins, nieces, and nephews.
