Davis, Carolyn Sue -

Carolyn Sue Davis

Tullahoma - Mrs. Carolyn Sue Davis, age 79, of Tullahoma, TN, passed from this life on Friday, June 7, 2019, at Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital surrounded by her family.
She was born in the small town of Oakland City, Indiana, where she was raised with 4 siblings. Although times were tough in the 40’s and 50’s, she always said she “had a good childhood and wonderful parents”. Her sisters remember her as having a sense of humor and being hard-working person. She raised 3 children while working until she retired at the age of 62. She was kind and always willing to help her children in any way she could even if it meant sacrificing for herself. She loved her children and grandchildren more than anything. She loved animals especially dogs and cats.

She loved a good joke and loved to laugh. When she was younger, she liked music and dancing to mostly 50’s music. She loved to read a good mystery book and watch mystery shows.

She was a good kind person who enjoyed her life. In her words” I have had a good life and have a really enjoyed my life”. She would want everyone to remember the person she was before she was struck by this terrible disease(Dementia). If everyone could reach out and help anyone they know with this disease or lend an ear to a family member going though what our family has gone thought the last 3 years, I think she would want this done in her memory.
We love our mother, mother-in-law, grandmother for all the love and understanding over the years of our lives!

Mrs. Davis is preceded in death by her parents, Curtis and Virginia Sumners. She is survived by her daughters, Susan (Kenneth) Roberts, Laura West and Natalie (Adam) Cagianese; sisters, Carla Woolsey and Rita Ward; grandchildren, Devonna Izzi, James West, Kenny Roberts, Paige West, Melissa Roberts, and Emma Cagianese; and seven great-grandchildren.

A memorial service will be held on Monday, June 17, 2019 at 2pm at Tullahoma Funeral Home with Pastor Kevin Ivy officiating.

Carolyn was the very best sister a gal could have. I always felt her love every time I was with her or talked with her. I will always remember her laughter and wonderful sense of humor. She is at rest now.
