Daisy Lee Hicks was born on September 27, 1912 in Plano, Texas, the daughter of Dr. Charles Joseph Hicks and his wife, Daisy Eone Branan. She graduated from Plano High School on Sunday, May 19, 1929. She participated in the Senior Class Play, "Be An Optimist", a Comedy in Three Acts. There were 39 graduates, and three girls had averages above 90, one being "Daisy Lee Hicks with an average of 92.33. Miss Hicks has an excellent attendance record. She neither absent nor tardy in her four years of high school work." The program also says that the Idea Girl should have "eyes like Daisy Lee Hicks".

The family moved to McKinney, Texas about 1931 while Daisy was attending The College of Industrial Arts, Texas State College for Women, now Texas Women's University in Denton. She graduated with her Bachelor of Science degree in 1933, obtained her teaching certificate, and taught elementary school for several years before marrying Woodrow C. Davis in 1936. They lived in Royce City, Sherman, Taylor, and then Cleburne, Texas. After her husband's death she started a pre-school kindergarten called the "Busy Bee" where she taught pre-schoolers from 1967 to 1973. Daisy died June 15, 1999 at the age of 86.
