Nancy was born Nov. 27, 1930, in Shelby to Thomas H. and Renner (Brackett) Abernathy. She was proud of being one of the “Forty-Niners,” a 1949 graduate of Shelby H.S.

She was recipient of the International Rainbow Grand Cross of Color.
Following her mother’s tutelage and expertise in food service, she was named the first school cafeteria manager at Brushy Creek Elementary School in Greenville, SC. After moving to Texas in 1963, she supervised the cafeteria for St. Peter and Paul Catholic School for many years and worked with Tarrant County Juvenile Detention Center before she retired.

Nancy was preceded in death by her parents; brother, Robert; father of her children, Forrest A. “Red” Davis, Jr.; parents-in-law, Forrest A. Sr., and Nettie Morrison Davis; and two grandchildren, Andrew and Emily Davis.
