Nadine Wilson Davis

December 7, 1925 — December 31, 2022

On December 31, 2022, Nadine Wilson Davis passed gracefully in her home, surrounded by family. She was an optimist, enthusiastic about life, and an inspiration to countless people. Nadine owed her longevity and remarkable life to a constantly positive outlook throughout her days. In addition, she was blessed to enjoy considerably good luck, as exhibited by her having to report positive earnings from Tunica over many years. Her steady, hot hand at fishing was impressive. An avid bridge player throughout her life, she enjoyed many mental exercises. She was a steadfast and fierce supporter of all those whom she loved. Those who knew her were made better by her vivacious character and readiness to share her witty, wise, and unique perspective on any situation. Her maxim, “do right” is an example that resonates, and it shares a broader insight to her ethic, to act virtuously and be of help to others. Nadine, a pioneer and model for women in business, started several successful ventures in the 1970’s and 1980’s, operating an antiques establishment, Davis Florist, and later Davis Florist and Gifts. Her impact on the community in business and in friendship endures. Nadine was born on December 7, 1925 in the Walnut Grove Community of Tipton County. Nadine was preceded in death by her husband Rob Roy Davis, her parents William John Wilson and Lucy Street Wilson, siblings Harvey Wilson, Rebecca Acree, June Liberto, and Lillian White. She is survived by her children Johnny (Judy) Davis and Ann Witherington (Barney), her grandchildren Suzanne Warren (Kellam), Barney Witherington (Elizabeth), Jesse Davis (Molly), Rob Witherington and Charlie Davis (Leah). She is also survived by her great-grandchildren John Kellam Warren, Benjamin Witherington, William Witherington, Nadine Davis, Griffin Davis, and step-great-grandchildren Rhett Simpson and Drake Simpson. Visitation will be held at Covington Funeral Home from 1:00 to 3:00 on Friday, January 6 with funeral services beginning at 3 p.m. Interment to follow in Covington Memorial Gardens.
