Maggie Davis Obituary


Maggie Andrew Davis was born to the late Mrs. Lettie C. Hendrex and Mr. Lymus Hendrex of Ochlocknee, GA, on April 4, 1936. She departed her earthly life
on October 9, 2023. She was the youngest. One sister, Bernice Gant, and one brother, Frank Hendrex, Sr., preceded her in death.

Maggie Davis became the wife of one husband, J. W. Davis, some 67 years ago. With the blessing of this union, God granted them four children, James Hendrex of Thomasville, GA, Jay W. Davis of Atlanta, GA, and the late Lettie D. Davis and the late Johnny Davis of Thomasville, GA.

Sister Maggie Davis was of Georgia and moved to New York where she held membership at Antioch Baptist Church in Hempstead, New York. She later moved her membership back to Union Hill Missionary Baptist Church in Ochlocknee, GA.

Maggie A. Davis’ childhood nickname was “Toot.” She was a graduate of Boston High School in Boston, GA.

After her marriage, she relocated to New York and remained there until she retired and returned back home with her husband in 2000 to enjoy the fruits of
her labor and God’s amazing grace.

She became a dietician in which she loved helping people with their diet. She was employed at Mercy Hospital Rockville Centre, New York, where she cared for people until she retired after over 30 years.

The woman her husband loved to call "Toot", cherished the divine, her husband, and family, but there was something special about the Hendrex, Coleman, Banks, and Davis family gatherings. It helped to keep her grounded and rooted to her heritage and to meet new and unknown family members.

Those cherishing her precious memories are her devoted and loving sons, James Hendrex of Thomasville, GA and Jay Davis of Atlanta, GA; three grandsons,
Jay W. Davis, Jr., of Atlanta, GA, Montrez Brown of Thomasville, GA, and Robert Hendrex of Richmond,VA; three granddaughters, Ja’Lena Davis of Atlanta,
GA, Ja’Londa Davis of Atlanta, GA, and Ja’Quita Davis of Thomasville, GA; ten great-grandchildren, Nyla E. Davis of Thomasville, GA, Zion L. Davis of Atlanta, GA, Terrell Davis of Thomasville, GA, Ja’Kare L. Greene of Atlanta, GA, Zoey M. Davis of Atlanta, GA, Zamaya N. Davis of Atlanta, GA, Zechariah D. Davis of Atlanta, GA, Montrez Brown of Thomasville, GA, Makayla Brown of Thomasville, GA, and Montrayvious Brown of Thomasville, GA; two daughters-in-law, Jance Davis of Thomasville, GA, and Cathy Davis of Atlanta, GA; loving nephews and nieces, Dr. Reverend Alexander H. Smith, City Commission of Apopka, FL, Johathan L. Gant of Denison, Texas, Thaddeus Ivey of Thomasville, GA, Lettie Reeves of Ocala, FL, Mary Estiven of Apopka, FL, Deborah Ann Gant of Apopka, FL, and Jacqueline Gabriel of Ocala, FL; and a host of great-nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives, and sorrowing friends.

She was preceded in death by her loving granddaughter, Maggie Jerlet Davis; nephews, Frank Hendrex, Jr., of Ocala, FL, and Johnnie Lee Hendrex of Ocala, FL; and nieces, Jacqueline Carol Cole of Apopka, FL.
