Obituary for Fannie D. Davis

“I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the LORD, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.” II Timothy 4:7-8

Fannie Denise Davis was one of six children born to Fannie Griffis Strickland and James Arthur Strickland, Sr. on March 23, 1958. On Thursday, May 7, 2020, she entered into eternal rest.

Fannie, who was affectionately known as “Nise” to her family and friends, attended and graduated from Clayton High School in 1976. After graduation, she became employed at Glenwood Manufacturing. Sometime later, she found employment at Draperies by Townes. She was a passionate and talented seamstress who used her skills to make drapes and pillows.

Fannie was baptized at an early age and placed her membership at Springfield Baptist Church in Raleigh. NC. She was an active member and faithful servant of God. She was a devoted evangelist that ministered to her family and friends.

Fannie was united in matrimony to Winslow Davis on January 10, 1997. This union produced Fannie’s truest love, her daughter Carissa. She was a loving, caring, and devoted wife, mother, sister, aunt, and friend. She had a loving, lighthearted spirit and a heart of gold. She also enjoyed fishing and spending time with her family. Fannie was preceded in death by her father, James Arthur Strickland, Sr. and mother, Fannie Griffis Strickland.

Fannie leaves to rejoice in her memory her husband, Winslow; daughter, Carissa Davis of Raleigh; four sisters, Portia Silver (Dennis) of Garner, NC, Barbara Yamagata, Pamela Strickland and Gloria Smith all of Raleigh; five brothers, James Strickland, Jr. (Sharon), and Gerald Strickland (Annette) both of Garner, Raymond Smith and Curtis Smith both of Raleigh, and Anthony Staten of Wendell; two sisters-in-laws, Peggy Wilder of Princeton and Betty Wardell (Reggie) of VA; two brothers-in-law, Carl Davis of Selma and Rueben Davis of Clayton; one aunt, Annie McLaurin of Raleigh; and a host of nephews, nieces, cousins and friends.
