In Loving Memory of Debra Jean Darling Davis

Debra Jean Darling Davis, a radiant soul who graced this world with her warmth and love, made her heavenly journey in the early morning hours of Dec. 23, 2023. She was born to Hoy and Virginia Darling of Nashville, Arkansas, both of whom preceded her in death. Debra was a 1974 graduate of Nashville High School, a Vietnam Veteran, and a retiree from the Social Security Administration. She leaves behind a legacy of love that will forever be etched in the hearts of those who knew her. Debra is survived by two sisters, Darla McLiverty of Virginia Beach, Va., Vickie Holcombe of Stanfield, N.C.

Her brothers Hoy Darling Jr. and Nick Darling preceded her in death.

Debra embarked on a lifelong journey of love and companionship with her husband, Bobby Davis, of Stanfield, NC. Together, they created a family filled with cherished memories and enduring bonds. Their 47 year love story is a testament to the strength and beauty that can blossom through the seasons of life.

Debra’s greatest joys were found in the love she shared with her children and their spouses, Tiah & Keith Walser of Lancaster, S.C., and Bobby & Staci Davis of Albemarle, N.C. Her role as a grandmother brought immeasurable happiness to her heart. She leaves behind a legacy of love through five grandsons: Brice, Parker, Cameron, Ryan, and Collin, three granddaughters: Savanna, Heather, Harlee Grace, and one great-granddaughter Reece.

Described as “pure sunshine in her smiles” with an unwavering loyalty to family, friends, and country. Debra had a remarkable ability to infuse fun into every moment. Those who were fortunate enough to know her recognize the extraordinary impact she had on their lives.

In honoring Debra’s wishes, there will be no funeral or ceremony. Instead, her ashes will be lovingly spread at her parents’ resting place in Arkansas, a serene tribute to a life well-lived.

Debra’s memory will forever be a source of light and inspiration. May she rest in peace, surrounded by the love that she so generously shared with the world.
