Brenda Proctor Davis
January 14, 1943 – January 16, 2021
Brenda Proctor Davis, 78, of Wilson, was called to Heaven on Saturday, January 16, 2021.
Surviving are her son, Andy Davis and wife, Jan Davis, and their children Connor and Zach Davis; her daughter, Jennifer Barnes and her children Madison Barnes and Taylor Manning and husband, Trey Manning; one sister, Jennie Clossen; and one brother, Phillip Richard Proctor and wife, Tammy.
Brenda was preceded in death by her parents, Joshua and Virginia Proctor, and three brothers, Donnie Proctor, Travis Proctor and Mark Proctor.
Brenda was employed by Wells Elementary School as a reading tutor for two years. She enjoyed beauty pageants and at the age of 24, she reigned as Miss Merry Christmas for Wilson. She also enjoyed Sunday lunches at her mother’s, spending time with family, playing pranks, dressing up in hats, sunglasses and jewelry, socializing and sweet tea. She was a loving and giving soul who was always funny and outspoken. A soul like hers shined so bright and will continue on in her children. The memories shared with her, no matter how big or small, will be remembered and cherished forever.
The family wishes to express their heartfelt gratitude and appreciation to Longleaf Neuro-Medical Treatment Center for all the compassionate care and support provided to our mother throughout the years.

Jennifer and Andy, I am so sorry for your loss. Even the way things have been for Brenda for so many years, I know the loss of a mother is a sad thing. I remember Brenda from New Hope School and also high school. We were in Choir together at Fike High School my senior and her junior year. We were also members of New Hope Baptist Church. I remember Brenda as a lovely girl, full of life and being so active. She had a lovely voice and also sang in the Church Choir some. Her mother was so devoted to her as long as she was able. God Bless you and your families. I am sorry I did not know of Brenda's death and funeral until the night of the funeral.

I hope I made you proud today, and I pray that you are now free and whole. I’ll carry you in my heart for as long as I breathe. Love you!❤️
Your baby girl , Jennifer
