On Friday June 5,2020, Mrs. Rose Davis passed from this life into the arms of her Heavenly Father. She was born March 28, 1940, in Alva, MS to Tom and Clara Thornburg. She married her husband Joe Davis on December 31, 1959. When they moved from Southaven, MS to Kissimmee, FL, she spent many years as a waitress, she owned her own bakery for a time, and had a daycare. All these jobs involved the thing that she loved most which was being around people. When she moved home to Mississippi, she spent a lot of time in the kitchen baking with her granddaughters, while listening to oldies on the radio, and cooking for her family. She always looked forward to her Sunday dinners with those she loved.
