MRS. MARGARET ANN KING DAVIS, daughter of the late John A. King and Annie P. Staples King was born July 25, 1931 in Lunenburg County Virginia and departed this life Feb. 15, 2018 in Richmond, VA. Her siblings, Mamie King, Bessie Freeman, Sarah Farrar, Harry King and Marion King preceded her in death.

At an early age she was baptized and joined Friendship Baptist Church, Kenbridge, VA.

She was a graduate of the Lunenburg County Public Schools.

On September 19, 1953 she was joined in holy matrimony to the late Arthur L. Davis and to this union six children were born; a daughter, Gwendolyn Davis-Thornton preceded her in death.

After marriage she transferred her membership to the former Diamond Grove RZUA Church to worship with her husband.  She was a Missionary, a member of the Usher Board, Anniversary Committee, and Banquet Committee.  After the death of her husband she became in charge of the Benevolence Fund.

Margaret, affectionately called “Queen Margaret,” was employed for many years at the Holiday Inn of South Hill and later retired to take care of her husband and children.

“Queen Margaret,” was an excellent cook.  She was willing to cook for the church, family and friends; making some of her delicious apple cakes, corn pudding, potato salad, blackberry rolls and etc.  She also loved to canned.

In her spare time she enjoyed watching TV, the westerns especially Walker Texas Ranger, Steve Harvey’s Family Feud, and the Young and the Restless.  When she was living in the Senior Facility, she would often tell everyone, “Y’all just wait till my children get here.”

Margaret will be greatly missed by her five children- Arthur “J D” Davis of the home; Barbara and Valerie Davis of Richmond, VA; Anthony Leon Davis of Washington, DC and Harry Davis of Newport News, VA; four grandchildren-Naketta Watkins-Ward, LaTonya, Antonio, and Kamica Davis; six great-grandchildren, Kemon Watkins, Jonas Kee, Juelz Marte-Davis, Korey Watkins, Kayla and Deonte Davis;  three sisters- Rosa Beard, Newark, NJ; Virginia (Roosevelt) Kersey, Elsie (George) Kersey, South Hill, VA; two brothers- John Richard King, South Hill, VA and Thomas King, Marietta, GA; two brothers-in-law;  three sisters-in-law; devoted caretaker, Rochelle Farley, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
