Mary Elizabeth Davis of Nashville, TN passed away on Sunday, September 29, 2019 at her home at the age of 84. She was born in Nashville on January 17, 1935 to the late Frank Coleman and Elsie Collins Coleman.
Along with her parents, Mary is preceded in death by her husband of 46 years, Lawrence Davis, Sr. and their daughter Tia Davis Hill.
Mary is survived by her children, Lawrence Davis, Jr, Sandra Davis Potts, Claude Martin Davis(Lynn), and Stephen Davis(Christy). She is also survived by nine grandchildren; thirteen great-grandchildren; and a host of many extended family members and close friends.
Mary was a member of New Covenant Christian Church in Nashville and was very close to her church family, as her faith is what was most important in her life. Before her health declined, Mary was an excellent bowler, competing in and winning several tournaments. She also had a passion for sewing. One of the fondest memories her family remembers is her love for singing and how they will cherish the comfort that brought, forever.

    Mary, I know you’re in Heaven with Lawrence, Tia, and the family. I was so blessed to sing for you at your funeral. I am blessed that you are my Sister-in-law. Smokey told me at the cemetery that you didn’t consider me your sister-in-law. I said your kid; he said brat! I love you and miss you. Gail
