Dorothy Aquila (Dot) Davis, 88, died after a short illness on August 25, 2019. She was born on May 24, 1930. Dot was the third daughter of John Hollie Davis (1902-1981) and Thelma Seay (1907-1982). Her older sisters were Lucille (1922-2014) and Rebecca (Becky, 1927-2008). Dot married Fred S. Reagan on June 30, 1948 and they were married for nearly 62 years until Fred’s death in 2010. They had two children, Daniel Eugene (Danny) born in 1951, and Cheryl Ann (Cheryl) born in 1953. Dot was a graduate of Young High School and a member of Beech Grove Baptist Church. After marrying Fred, Dot was primarily a housewife and mother, but assisted Fred occasionally in his electronics business and worked at Sky City and the Proffitt’s Department Store warehouse after her children were grown. Upon the untimely death of her daughter Cheryl, she helped Cheryl’s widower Ken (who moved from California to be nearby) raise her grandchildren, Derek (7) and Kara (4). She is survived by her son-in-law, Ken; grandchildren, Derek and Kara; great grandchildren, Saddie and Miles. A private family service will be held.

Dot was the wonderful great aunt of my daughter-in-law Andrea Uselton, and I was privileged to visit her several times over the last few years. Dot had the most pleasant, caring smile and way with flowers. She gave me a cutting of her crown-of-thorns which I've kept, and shared her orchid fertilizer hints with me.

I remember Dot laughing about when her new vacuum robot pushed out long-lost silver dollars from under the bed. She had a sunny, humble way about her. I know she was beloved by all who knew her... certainly by Andrea and her Nanny.
