M. Delores Terrell Davis met Jesus on March 11, 2021 in Fernandina Beach, FL.  She was born September 14, 1934 in Yulee, FL to the late D.W. Terrell and Louise E. Thompson Terrell.  She was Valedictorian of her class at Yulee High School before the school’s conversion.  She could often be heard singing her favorite songs, “How Great Thou Art” and “I’m Proud To Be An American” before being taken by her illness.  She exemplified a servant’s heart by her love and gentle compassion she expressed to encourage others.  She loved tending her flowers and beach walking.  She was a faithful member of Ephesus Baptist Church.  She worked with Gold Kist in accounting for 20 years and developed many friendships before the company sold.  She retired from the Florida Department of Health.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 46 years:  J. Lester Davis; and a brother:  Alvin Terrell.

She is survived by her devoted and loving husband of the last 19 years:  Dennis Davis of Hilliard, FL; 2-children:  Ricky (Debbie) Davis and Brenda (Tim) Moyers of Hilliard, FL; 4-grandchildren and 4-great grandchildren and a number of nieces, nephews, family and friends that will cherish her memory.
