Marie Davis

Marie Davis, 97, of Indianapolis, received her crown & wings and went home to be with the Lord Sunday July 7, 2019 at 1:50am. She was born November 30, 1921, to Cleophus and Maggie Patrick Wicker in Knott County, Kentucky.

She married Arnold Davis on November 20, 1948, and they moved to Connersville in the early 1950’s. They had two children, Rickie T. Davis and Donna S. Davis, of Indianapolis; one grandson, Rickie T. Davis Jr., of Connersville; two brothers and sisters-in-law, Bobby & Alice Wicker and Jim & Lorene Wicker, both of Connersville.

In addition to her parents, husband, and son, she is preceded in death by 8 brothers, Wilson, Willard, Virgel, Ed, Dan, Curt, Bert, & Joe, as well as 4 sisters, Gladys Hurt, Ima Lee Hall, Opal Moore, & Hazel Jean Hicks.

Marie lived with and was cared for by her daughter, Donna Davis and Julie Roberts since early 2000.

Marie loved the Lord and her Bible, singing hymns, her church (Garrison Creek Baptist Church). She enjoyed cooking big holiday meals for family and friends, loved Jackie Kennedy, sewing, flowers, poetry, playing her harmonica, and all kinds of music ...especially the lyrics. She had style, grace, and a quick wit. Marie was always happy and optimistic no matter what hardships she faced and had a positive attitude. Her gratitude for everything was matched by none.

She’ll be missed by her family, friends, sitters, and caregivers and her grand dog “Jagger”!

Visitation for Marie will be held on Saturday, July 13, 2019 from 11:00am until 1:00pm at Urban-Winkler Funeral Home, Connersville. The funeral service will begin at 1:00pm, at the funeral home. Burial will follow in Laurel North Cemetery. To sign the online guestbook or send the family a personal message, please visit www.urbanwinklerfuneralhome.com.
