Obituary for Barbara Godwin Davis

A celebration of the life of Barbara Godwin Davis will be held at the First Baptist Church in Quincy, Tuesday, January 23 at 3:00 pm. Barbara, 91 years young, lived in the Juniper community for over 30 years with her husband of 63 years, Richard Spayne Davis (deceased). She was a devoted wife and mother of daughters, Kay D. Peddie (Buddy), and Karen Aleah Davis (Buddy). She delighted in all of her grandchildren Laura Aleah Miller, Amy Kathryn McCann, Aliya Christine Peddie, Luke Edward Spayne Miller (Cynthia) and Sara-Catherine Roman (Luis). Great Grandchildren Ethan Christopher Tramel (Theresa), Kacie King, Deven Zada Peddie, Riley Kathryn McCann, River Elyse Peddie, Macen James McCann, Blake Davis Roman, Bella Kaelynn Miller, Levi Davis Miller, Adelynn Kate Miller, Rael Aleah Roman and Eden Joy Roman. Great great grandchildren Christian Aiden Goodwin, Gracelynn Reese Cord, Prudence Kathleen Tramel and Jude Spayne Tramel always filled any space with laughter.

Mrs. Davis was born in Camden, S.C. where she will once again rest beside her husband and best friend, Richard, at Quaker Cemetery. She grew up in Pelham, GA on her parent’s farm. Steve Augusta Godwin and Mary Catherine Young Godwin both deceased, raised daughters, Peggy Joyce Hopkins (deceased), Barbara Davis, Kitty Jane McKenzie and Steve Augusta Godwin, Jr. (deceased). Nieces and Nephews came and the family grew large and loving. Jay McKenzie (Gina), Todd McKenzie (Kathy), Bryan McKenzie, Janet McKenzie Dean (Chad), Judy Kay. Lewis (deceased), Sherolyn Eller (Mike), Anita Singletary (Roger), Dave Hopkins, (Cheryl), Sunny Alyson Barry and Gwenelle Hopkins. In addition, her family has been blessed with many great and great-great nieces and nephews.

Barbara was an Army wife. Not only did she follow her soldier husband from post to post, he called her the “wind beneath his wings”, and she was. From post war Japan to walled West Berlin, she made any place “home” for her family. She was indeed a southern lady who could hostess any gathering with joy and dignity. She had a flair for colors and textures showcased by her jewelry making and flower arranging among so many other things.

Her faith was her foundation and she shared it freely especially through her commitment to the Gideon Auxiliary serving in many offices just as Richard served as a Gideon.

In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to the Gideons.

Charles McClellan Funeral Home, Quincy, Florida, 850-627-7677, is in charge of arrangements.
