Clayton County Register, Thur., 31 Jan. 1929. Strawberry Point column.
Last Wednesday evening our people were shocked to learn that Miss Mary Davis had passed away perhaps without a moments warning. At noon she didn't eat any dinner but nothing strange was thought of that. In the afternoon her cousin, Miss Grace Davis, called, but she did not complain. In the evening when her brother, Oscar, who worked in the Goodrich Produce house came home for supper, he saw no light and when he entered the kitchen he saw his sister, Miss Mary, lying in front of the oil stove. From all appearances she was about ready to start supper. The death was probably due to a stroke of apoplexy. Dr. F. H. Howard was called and relatives and friends came but could do nothing. Miss Davis was born in Delaware and has spent nearly all her life at Strawberry Point. She was a great worker in the M.E. church and when called upon was ready to do her part. She was treasurer in the Industrial Club of which she was a member. Last May, at the election of officers in the Fortnightly Club she was elected president. What a lovable character passes in the death of Mary Davis. She was a friend of everyone and everyone loved her. In the home, on the street, wherever you chanced to meet her she would greet you with a smile. Funeral services will occur at the home Tuesday afternoon, conducted by Rev. T. J. Elwick, pastor of the M.E. church. Interment in the family lot of our cemetery. She is survived by four brothers and one sister, B. J. Davis and W. D. Davis, of Edgewood; O. R. Davis, of this place; A. M. Davis, of Cartersville, Mont.; and Mrs. Mabel Shephard, of Red Oak. Her parents and two sisters preceded her in death.
