Charlie S Davis

March 6, 1947October 22, 2020

Charlie Smith Davis, 73, of Plano, passed away on Thursday, October 22, 2020 surrounded by her loving family.

She was born on March 6, 1947, in Dallas, Texas, to the late Charleston and Pauline (Quesenberry) Smith. Charlie attended Garland High School where she later received her GED. Charlie was born a natural caregiver with the gift of compassion, which compelled her to attend nursing school where she became an LVN and later joined the medical staff with Medical City of Dallas after it opened, working in ICU and eventually in the trauma and burn unit.

Charlie was a woman who enjoyed life. She had a quirky personality that encompassed a great sense of humor and a genuine love for people. Charlie was a long-time member of First Christian Church in Plano and First Christian Church in Garland before that. She was a devoted wife and mother. She lovingly participated in every activity her children were involved in and often cared for her grandchildren while her children worked. She was an excellent cook and her Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners will forever be cherished. Charlie enjoyed refinishing antique furniture and gardening, especially planting flowers to attract hummingbirds. More than anything, spending time with her family was her greatest joy in life. She will be greatly missed by all who loved and knew her.

In addition to her parents, Charlie was preceded in death by sisters, Janice Smith and Isabel Tackett; twin grandsons, Joshua and Christopher Hughes; and father-in-law, Jack Davis. She is survived by her husband of 40 years, John Davis; her children, Clifton (Dawn) Hughes of Carrollton, Polly (Steve) Murphy of Plano, DeeDee (Craig) Richardson of Plano, Trey (Jana) Davis of San Antonio, and Alex (Jason Gonzalez) Davis of Plano; grandchildren, Alyssa (James) Price, Breanna Hughes, Elizabeth (Steve) Batchelor, Krystle (Ben) Lindsey, Erica Leveen, Kimbra (Mike) Saunders, Jesse Murphy, Michael Murphy, Jamie Murphy, Orin Richardson, Emma Richardson, and Elianna Gonzalez; great-grandchildren, Micah, Hannah, Alison, Christian, Dakota, Luca, Brendan, Graeson, Jaxon; mothers-in-law, Sue Davis of Garland and Marcia Davis of Rowlett.

She was a beautiful lady . As a kid i recall her long blonde hair, and she always welcomed all of us kids at her home ,and we were a small wild crowd . She stitched up my brothers foot one day after he cut it jumping a ramp on his bike. My parents were both still at work , so we were on our own after school but she ran down to our house to help . She was great . Prayers and love to her family .

Although we did not get to talk or visit often, it really did not matter because our hearts were connected. We were family and there was always an understanding of that between all of us. We could go for years and yet we still remained in each others thoughts and prayers. I regret I was not of any help or comfort to Chatsie during the times of her illness. Charlie Ruth was a such a dear person with such a sweet nature and compassionate personality, that she certainly deserved all we had to give. We send our prayers and our love to you all. Rest in Peace dear cousin.

Charlie, my sweet daughter-in-law, is going to be missed so much. I will always have so many memories of the fun family get togethers we shared together. Charlie and John's hosting of birthday parties, Thanksgiving and Christmas get togethers were always made so special because of the love for they both had for their family. She loved to hear your voice on the phone when you called and a visit to see her meant so much. Your love will remain with us forever.

Although, the origin of our relationship was a tumultuous beginning, I grew to love you as my Mom. You will always have a place in my heart. Rest In Peace Charlie. I’ll see you on the other side.

I spent many weekends at John and Charlie's house as a teenager. Charlie was always supportive and never judgemental, no matter what I was going through. She would offer advise, but only if I asked, she would just listen if that's what I needed. Charlie was not just my sister in law, she was also my friend! She will be missed more than words can express. Rest in peace my friend!
