BELLEVILLE- Winnie P. Davis, 82, of Belleville, IL, passed away on Sunday, October 11, 2020 at Belleville Memorial Hospital, surrounded by her loving family.

Winnie was born May 15, 1938 in Big Sandy, TN to Paul and Buel (Lowery) VanHuss.

Winnie was preceded in death by her parents.

She married Fred R. Davis Jr. in 1959; he preceded her in death on May 1, 2019. Together, they shared 60 wonderful years of marriage.

Winnie worked and retired as a manger and bookkeeper for Centreville Township.

She was a St. Clair County board member, alongside Fred. Fred served as a Precinct Committeemen, but it was often joked that Winnie earned that title for all the hard work she put in of Fred’s behalf. She was also a member of the Business and Professional Women's Foundation for many years. She loved to travel with her family and friends. She cherished the time she was able to spend with her grandchildren. She loved to read, crochet, cross-stitch and play crossword puzzles. Winnie will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her.

Beth, Kristi, & Paul,

My deepest condolences for the loss of your dear Winnie! I want to thank you for sharing her with all of us, she really was like another mother to me. That is the true value of growing up together, isn’t it? Sharing not only in our life experiences, but with our love, values, and guidance as well. Winnie taught me to be engaged with my community and when I’m gentle and patient, I’m drawing from her deep, wise well. I will love her, and each of you, forever and always! Rest peacefully in Fred’s arms, dear Winnie. 💞
