Patsy Louise Barrentine Davis

Jan. 17, 1939 – May 30, 2019

 

PORT GIBSON — Services for Patsy Louise Barrentine Davis, 80, of Port Gibson, who died Thursday, May 30, 2019, at her residence, will be 11 a.m. Wednesday at First Presbyterian Church in Port Gibson.

Burial will follow at Idlewild under the direction of Moore Funeral Home in Hattiesburg.  

Visitation will be from 6 to 9 p.m. today at Idlewild.

Mrs. Davis was born Jan. 17, 1939, the daughter of Jessie Clifton Berrentine and Mary Louise Evans Barrentine.

She was a graduate of Natchez High Shchool and went on to study at Mississippi College in Clinton. She continued her education, earning a master’s degree from the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg.
She was married to Theodore Alton Davis for 15 years.

Pat served as a teacher in the Hattiesburg Public School System … no telling how many young lives she influenced. She was active in the community, participating in Whispers in the Cedars, the Port Gibson Heritage Trust, backstage at the Blue Barn Theatre and visiting the residents at Claiborne County Nursing Home. One year, she helped with the Port Gibson Baptist Church vacation Bible school. She always had a project she was working on.

If she wasn’t painting, sanding or refinishing something, she was trying to keep Scott “Toby” in line. She adored him and was a beautiful example of a loving, giving, supportive mother. On more than one occasion she said, “Toby, you can’t wear someone else’s shoes, but you can try them on.” She loved history, Idlewild, Port Gibson and chocolate. She had an extensive vocabulary which she used to win at Scrabble and Wordscape. She had a quick wit and was a joy to be around. She knew how to make everyone feel loved.

Davis was preceded in death by her parents and her best friend of 40 years, Peggy Speed.

She is also served by her beloved Boston Terriers, Guy, Cliff, Sammy and Jada.

Davis is survived by one son, Scott Clifton “Toby” Davis.
