Patsy Mae Bell Davis, 74, was born on October 17, 1947, in Wilkes County, to Con Bell and Opal Caudill Bell Alexander.
On Tuesday morning, May 31, 2022, she was surrounded by her loving family as she peacefully left this world and went home to be with her Lord and Savior as well as family and friends that have gone on before her.
There will be a Celebration of Life Service at 11:00 a.m., Saturday, June 4, 2022, at Hillcrest Baptist Church with Rev. James Wingler and Kevin Huffman officiating. Burial will be in Mountlawn Memorial Park. The family will receive friends from 6:00 until 8:00 p.m., Friday evening at Reins-Sturdivant Funeral Home. The family looks forward to sharing fond memories and asked friends and family to come and be ready to do the same at that time.
She will be remembered as a precious wife, a devoted Mother, a loving Nannie, and a dedicated friend. She retired as a seamstress, after 27 years, from Key City Furniture. Her granddaughters will always remember her sweet voice while she held and rocked them on the outdoor swing singing “Just-a-swingin’” changing the lyrics and putting each granddaughter’s name in the verse.
She was preceded in death by her parents and step-father, Clyde Alexander; her sister and best friend, Peggy Wood; and her infant granddaughters, Barbara Pipes and Amber Pipes.
She grieved for her family that went on before her but she knew she would see them again soon. Now, they are all together, walking the streets of gold where there is no more sickness, pain, or heartaches.
She is survived by her husband of 58 years, the love of her life, Doug Davis. As a token of their love for each other, she is also survived by her daughters, Sherry Pipes (Jimmy) of Moravian Falls, and Terri Wingler (Rev. James Wingler) of McGrady; three granddaughters, Lauren Wingler of Troutman, Allison Pipes Foster of Moravian Falls, and Leia Wingler of McGrady; and a great-granddaughter, Ava Foster. Family was of the utmost importance to her, especially her husband, children, and grandchildren.
Flowers will be accepted or memorials may be made to Hillcrest Baptist Church, PO Box 290, Wilkesboro, NC 28697; or St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105.
