Posted at 8:25 PM on Mar 11, 2019


Nancy Jane Davis, 77, of Statesville, N.C, returned to her heavenly home on March 10, 2019, after a valiant battle with a long illness.

Born on September 6, 1941, in Iredell County, she was the daughter of the late Glenn Davis and Virginia Poole Davis.

Her devotion to her children and firm belief in God supported her in her struggles and ultimately gave her peace. She loved being a member of Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas. In her free time, she enjoyed painting, reading, and spending time with her friends. She also had a special place in her heart for her dog, a Chow Chow named Maely.

In addition to her parents and husband, she was also preceded in death by her first husband, Russell Summers; brothers, William Davis and Jerry Davis; and sisters, Becky Wiggill and Louise Davis.

Those left to cherish her memory include her sons, Mark (Martha) Summers and David Summers; sisters, Sarah Davis and Terri Stonestreet; second husband, Robert Neilson; and numerous nieces and nephews.

A graveside service will be held on Tuesday, March 12, 2019, at 2 p.m. at Iredell Memorial Gardens.

The family gratefully declines flowers and instead requests donations be made to Meals on Wheels Program, P.O. Box 344, Statesville, NC 28687. Thank you for your kind, loving prayers.
