Precious Memories of
Diana Mae Davis was born on May 29, 1950 to Sylvester H. Stewart and Esther R. Davis (Black) in KCKS. Both parents preceded her in death.
She was also preceded in death by brothers, Lester Purvis and Stevon Stewart; her Grandmother, Helen Pruett and life-long ride or die friend Louise Hill.
Diana attended Stowell school, Northeast Junior high and Sumner High School where she graduated in 1969.
After High School she worked various jobs until she became employed at General Motors Corp. where she worked for 30 yrs. retiring in 2006. At which time her health problems began, but she still enjoyed her life getting out with anyone who wanted to ride, didn’t matter where, wheelchair and all, she was always ready. She was truly a backseat driver making sure you did not miss or forget anything. She truly enjoyed family functions and hanging out with her girls and playing cards friends. As time went on her true joy in life became her two granddaughters Amyah and Ava, the apples of her eyes and attending church as often as she could.
Diana was baptized at St. Luke A.M.E. Church under the leadership of Dr. William Howard Clark and later moved her membership to Guiding Star Missionary Baptist Church under the leadership of Pastor David Lee and she loved her Pastor. She attended church until her health started to decline and she had to move in with her daughter and son-in-law, who took care of her until her death.
Diana had a sweet and quiet soul with the most beautiful and uplifting smile.
