Mrs. Carolyn was born in Milan, TN on September 26, 1955, to the late Amos Petty and Ruth West Petty.  She was a strong, dedicated believer and LOVED JESUS!!!  She was affectionately known as Mama Davis, Lola and Nini.  Mrs. Carolyn loved being an EMT for Gibson County and she was very cool-headed when dealing with a crisis.  She was an extraordinary cook who loved country cooking and was gifted in that she could duplicate a dish or dessert after tasting it, without needing  a recipe. She was very adventurous and enjoyed life with a magnetic personality.  She loved her children, loved teaching children and was a devoted homemaker to her family.  Mrs. Carolyn was always the life of the party, and we can only imagine the celebration reunion she is experiencing now in Heaven.  She was also preceded in death by one brother:  Mike Petty; and one sister:  Linda Tubbs.

She is survived by her loving husband:  Tom Davis of Dyer, TN; two sons:  Alan Howard Copley (Marbelle) of Davenport, IA and Thomas E.
