    I have many sweet memories of visiting with Sis. Davis in the last few years. Each time Anne, and I would drop by to see her, she was always so happy to see us and made us feel so welcomed. She will truly be missed, as she was such a positive influence on so many lives. I first met her 43 years ago, when I met my husband, Steve, who attended the church that she and her husband pastored.

    When I began my teaching career in 1984 at Silsbee Junior High Mrs. Davis was one of the teachers that worked with me. She was so very kind and helpful to me. I always remember her smile and sweet words. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family......What a wonderful lady.
