Dorothy W. Davis

Dorothy W. Davis, born September 2, 1027 in Lawhon, Louisiana passed away on Sunday February 23, 2020, at the age of 92.  She was preceded in death by her husband of 63 years Ernest E Davis, her parents Robert and Lorene White, her sister Gladys North, and two brothers Lane White and James Roy White.   She is survived by her daughter, Ramona Fryer and husband Kenneth of Baton Rouge Louisiana, one sister Merry Conly of Ringgold, Louisiana and numerous nieces and nephews.  

Dorothy was a lifelong member of Taylor Baptist Church.  She served her church and family faithfully.   She was profoundly strong, and some people occasionally made the mistake of calling her stubborn, to which she always replied, “I’m true to my convictions.”   Her upbringing during the Great Depression and World War II gave her strength of character, determination, and an unwavering work ethic.  She loved any plant with a bloom and cared for any animal that needed help, but most of all she was a nurturing, caring, and loving mom.

Family and friends are invited to attend the visitation at Rose-Neath Funeral Home in Minden, Louisiana on Tuesday February 25, 2020 from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m.  Funeral Services honoring her life will be held at Taylor Baptist Church in Taylor, Louisiana on Wednesday February 26, 2020 at 1:00 p.m.  Reverend Larry Hubbard and Reverend Jimmy Eppinette will be officiating. Interment will be at Woodard Cemetery in Taylor.
