Bert, as she was known during her adult life, was the youngest of three children born to Earl C. and Lillian Davis of Harkers Island, North Carolina. She was raised on the Island but left there at the tender age of 17 to marry and begin her family in Mesa, Arizona. Among her many talents, she was known for her beautiful singing voice and we were blessed to witness her vocal talents regularly in church and at home.
