“Because Of God’s Love She Was Here”
Mamie Lue (Wilkerson) Davis was born on December 5, 1939 in Americus, Georgia into the parentage of Mamie and Joe Wilkerson. She was their only beloved daughter. As a young child, her interests included sewing, sketching, dancing and most of all, she loved singing!
Mamie graduated from A.S. Stanley High School in Americus, Georgia in 1957. After high school, she moved to Newark, NJ where she met and married her husband, the late Mort Davis. Within this union, two children were born. During this time in her life, she took on the role of “homemaker” - a stay at home mother. In the early 1970’s she relocated back to Americus, Georgia where she reunited her family of three daughters and began a career as a cosmetologist. Working as a hair stylist was one of the happier times in her life because it gave her an opportunity to display her love and natural abilities. She would later become employed with the Davidson Rubber Company where she worked as an Inspector. She retired from DRC in the early 1990’s.
Mamie joined Mt. Olive Baptist Church at an early age. She loved the Lord with all of her soul and with all of her might. Her relationship with God strengthened over the years and her faith was unshakable! She loved attending church, however, during the last three years of her life, her health began to fail and she was unable to attend as she truly desired. Nevertheless, despite her aggressive illness, she still praised God in the good and bad times. She paid homage to God through daily devotion, song and praise with the assistance of network ministries. She also loved journaling the word of God and spending time talking with friends and relatives.
