God’s Infinite wisdom has plucked another beautiful flower.

Isom Mae Davis was born to Isom and Annie Jackson on March 17, 1939 in Ardmore. She resided there most of her life. She attended Ardmore Dunbar and Douglas where she graduated with the Class of 1956. Isom was a majorette during her high school years. She participated in homemaker’s class and other activities within the school.

Isom pursued her education and worked for the Department of Human Services for many years before her retirement. Her hobbies included writing, gardening and crocheting, and she was very good at them all.

Isom married Rev. Kenneth Davis, Sr. where he pastored at the Macedonia Baptist Church. She held the title of 1st Lady and was over the music ministry department. To this union they parented four children, and nurtured a host of others. She was well loved by many.

She later moved to Pauls Valley, where she worked as a human resource officer for Viskase & Kirkwood and joined Bethlehem Baptist Church.
