Carolyn Fay Davis

July 21, 1944August 10, 2019

Fay was a wife, mother and grandmother. She counted these among her chief accomplishments and took great pride in this. When asked what she was most proud of, she replied "my kids". Her daughter Melissa Davis, and son Gary Davis survive her. From her children, she was blessed with 5 grandchildren, and one great-grandchild, all of whom survive her as well. She will always be known to them as "Mawmaw Fay"...she hated being called by her actual first name, Carolyn. Fay was a life long fan of the University of Louisville Cardinals, though she was not fond of the color red. Her favorite letters of the alphabet were "B", "I", "N", "G", and "O". To say she was a fan of The King, would be a gross understatement. After Jesus, we're not sure who she might be more excited to see in heaven...her husband Steven, or Elvis Presley. Among quirks like salting her beer (Old Milwaukee and Morton's, for the inquiring minds), she also carried a copy of her birth certificate with her everywhere she went to prove how old she was since no one ever believed her. She was 75. Fay was preceded in death by her parents Lindsey and Verna Raizor; her siblings Gerald, Curtis, Nina (whom she admired deeply), Mary Christine, Patsy, Louis, Lester (who died in infancy), and Elizabeth; and her husband Steven. In addition to her only 2 children, 5 grandchildren, and 1 great grandchild, Fay is survived by her sister Evelyn Raizor, and an abundance of nieces and nephews. A service to celebrate Fay's life will take place at 2pm on Saturday, August 17, 2019 at Arch L. Heady at Resthaven, 4400 Bardstown Road, with entombment to follow in Resthaven Memorial Park. The family will accept guests for visiting on Friday, August 16, 2019 from 4-8 pm at the funeral home and from 11am-2pm before the service on Saturday.

And uncle Dewayne doing his hypnosis on either uncle Steve or one of us kids.And you couldn't hide because grandpa had eyes in back of his Teaching our aunt who was legally blind how to not only climb a tree..But how to ride a moped with someone on the bike with her.We had the best memories with all of us as family. Will always cherish them.
