Perry

Becky Davis entered into eternal rest in the presence of her LORD during the early morning of October 28, 2023, at her residence, Madison Heights at the Prado in Macon, Georgia. She died peacefully in her sleep. Becky was the oldest child of Addis J. Hill and Lela Mae Corbett Hill. She was born and reared in Chattahoochee, Florida.

Becky’s warm smile, contagious, gracious personality and her spiritual, leadership qualities were well known. She was a leader in her youth group at Chattahoochee Presbyterian Church, first chair clarinet in her High School Band and the 1958 Homecoming Queen (Chattahoochee High School). She attended Montreat College in Black Mountain, N.C. and Chipola Junior College in Marianna, Florida. Becky graduated from Florida State University in 1962 with a BS in Education. Becky received her master’s degree in Early Childhood Education in 1986 (GA Southwestern University). Becky was the U.S. Army ROTC Queen in 1962 and the French Club Spring Princess (Montreat, 1959).

Becky and Hugh met at FSU and they were married on November 24, 1962. They spent seven years in the U.S. Army as Hugh was a Nike Hercules Missile Officer during the Cold War. Tours included Warner Robins, GA; Ft. Rucker, AL; Athens, Greece; and El Paso (Ft. Bliss), TX. After a call to ordained ministry, Hugh and Becky went to Emory University in Atlanta (Candler School of Theology; 1969-1972).

Becky was an outstanding Christian leader who served with her husband for the eight appointments they shared in the South Georgia Annual Conference, United Methodist Church (41 years.) She was active in the United Methodist Women, handbells, choir, and taught Children’s Sunday School.

Becky’s wonderful reputation as an excellent kindergarten teacher was well known. She offered her educational expertise for thirty-eight years, retiring from Bibb County School System in 2002.

Becky loved to garden, especially flowers, cook, sew, knit, solve picture puzzles and host at special family events. She left her family with a tremendous legacy for magnificent parenting, loyalty to God and His church, and spiritual daily growth. Her strong Christian demeanor, staunch love of Jesus, and warm, inviting personality will abound in the memories of our hearts for years to come.

She is survived by her beloved family members: Her husband of 60 years, Dr. Hugh L. Davis; daughter, Deborah (Shawn) Storie; daughter, Karen (Terry) Stewart; son, Dr. Hugh H. (Amy) Davis; daughter, LeClaire (Jim) Lawless; sister, Jean (James) Lawrence; sister, Carol (Richard) Moorefield; brother, Jerry (Marcia) Hill. Her grandchildren: Ryan, Adam, and Michael Akin; Joshua and Janelle Stewart; Hugh MacGregor and Mary Claire Davis; Rebecca and John Lawless; Brett, Bryan, Carson, and Carly Storie. Becky is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Becky blessed us daily with her loving personality, beautiful and sincere hospitality, and her devoted life’s witness for Jesus. We praise God for these fond memories of Becky, through whom God blessed us deeply.
