Mrs. Betty Jo McDaniel Davis, 68, gained her eternal rest on November 25, 2021.  She carried many titles—child of God, daughter, wife, mother, sister, aunt, cousin, friend, g-momma.  She was born on February 16, 1953 to the late Willie Bailey McDaniel and Marsha Minerva Griffin McDaniel of Batesville, Mississippi.  She was the ninth of ten living children.  Her parents and three of her siblings, Willie McDaniel, Thomas Arthur McDaniel, and Rebecca Battle, preceded her in death.

Betty accepted Christ as her Lord and Savior and was baptized by Brother Adell Davis, Sr. in Oxford, Mississippi.  Until her death, she served as a teacher, women’s ministry leader, and benevolence coordinator at the Mayberry Street Church of Christ in Fayetteville, Tennessee.  Through her efforts, she developed a ministry to honor senior citizens, uplift women in the church, and provide resources for those in need in the community.

Betty graduated from Patton Lane High School in Batesville, Mississippi in 1970.  She attended Northwest Community College and the University of Mississippi where she studied social work and sociology before obtaining her Mrs. degree.

Betty was united in holy matrimony to Cedreck Gene Davis on December 9, 1973.  To this union, one daughter, Tamarrah Celanda, was born.  She required the best, helped them in every way, polished them, and made them what they needed to be.  The ultimate results were Tamarrah becoming a special caregiving physician and Cedreck becoming a somewhat decent preacher.  Her love and guidance were always present and, without a doubt, she brought out the best in them.  What great love they shared!

Betty loved her family, having a good time, and enjoying a hearty laugh.  She devoted her time to supporting her husband, raising her daughter, and encouraging people to achieve their full potential.  She sold Mary Kay, made jewelry, decorated spaces with an unmatched flair, and could cook the finest meals this side of heaven. 

Betty leaves to cherish her memory: her husband Cedreck G. Davis of Huntsville, Alabama; one daughter, Dr. Tamarrah C. Davis of Chattanooga, Tennessee; four sisters, Eljean Thurman of Indianapolis, Indiana, Jerlene Dickerson of Cleveland, Ohio, Wilma Herring of Southaven, Mississippi, and Genevia (Michael) Jackson of Southaven, Mississippi; 2 brothers, Ralph (Margaret) McDaniel, Sr. of St. Louis, Missouri and George (Debra) McDaniel of Senatobia, Mississippi; a cherished nephew, Sherman (Stacie) Ford of Southaven, Mississippi; a brother-in-law, Adell Davis, Jr. of Senatobia, Mississippi; 3 sisters-in-law, Yvonne Sandridge of Coldwater, Mississippi, Jannafer (Barry) Reed of Houston, Texas, and Sheila Davis of Senatobia, Mississippi; and a host of nieces, nephews, relatives and friends who have been benefactors of her love and care and will continue to foster the legacy she imprinted so deeply on the hearts of many.

“Keep it real!” – Betty Davis

“God first.  Family second. Career third.” -Betty Davis (and Mary Kay Ash)
