She was 67 years old and dealing with persons in custody who were often one-third (or less) her age and typically in far stronger physical condition. Many of those Mary had to control were under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, emotionally unstable and desperate.

Mary Davis also faced tremendous personal tragedy 22 years earlier. As a 45 year old wife and mother of five children (with the youngest just seven years old), Mary tragically lost her husband William, when he was "Ground To death" (as described by the newspaper) under the wheels of a trolley car at Third St. and King St. in Wilmington.
