Mrs Emily McDowell Davis, 58, died unexpectedly at her home in Winston-Salem, N.C. Friday night October 31. A native of Fincastle, a daughter of the late Mr and Mrs Turner McDowell, news of her death came as a shock to her may friends here in her native home.

She was the widow of J Paxton Davis, also a native of Botetourt. She was here to attend the funeral of her brother, Stuart McDowell, October 25. She was a prominent church and civic leader in her adopted home, and a member of the Board of Trustees of Converse College.

She is survived by a son, J Paxton Davis, Jr., and a daughter, Mrs George Rigby both of Winston-Salem; and a brother, Turner McDowell, Glen Falls, N.Y.

Funeral services were held at the First Presbyterian Church in Winston-Salem, Sunday afternoon, and graveside services and burial were in the Godwin Cemetery here Monday at 2:00 p.m.
