Mrs. Davis was born in Nova Scotia, daughter of the late Edward and Mary Ann Hancock. As a small child, with her parents, she moved to Sutro, Nevada, and was married there to the late James Marshall Davis, who died in 1906. Mr. and Mrs. Davis moved from Sutro to Virginia City in 1890. In 1915, Mrs. Davis and her daughter, Susan, moved to Carson.

For many years they conducted the J. M. Davis book and stationary store in Virginia City, and she was the owner of the Evening Chronicle and was also connected with the telephone company for a number of years. She was well known throughout Nevada. She was a member of the Argents chapter No.7 and Order of the Eastern Star of Virginia City for more than 50 years.

Surviving are her daughter, Miss Susie Jeanette Davis, of Carson; a sister, Mrs. L.M [Lillie] Fowler of Los Angeles, and a number of nieces and nephews.

Funeral services will be announced by the Capital City mortuary and burial will be in the family plot in the Virginia City cemetery."
