Obituary for Patsy Louise Barrentine Davis

Patsy Louise Barrentine Davis, 80 years old, passed Thursday, May 30, 2019, at her home in Port Gibson, Mississippi.

She was born January 17, 1939, the daughter of Jessie Clifton Barrentine and Mary Louise Evans Barrentine. She graduated from Natchez High School and went on to study at Mississippi College in Clinton, MS. She continued her education earning a Masters Degree from the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg. She was married to Theodore Alton Davis for 15 years.

She was preceded in death by her mother and father, her best friend of 40 years, Peggy Speed, and her beloved Boston Terriers, Guy, Cliff, Sammy, and Jada. She is survived by her son, Scott Clifton Toby Davis.

Pat served as a teacher in the Hattiesburg Public School telling how many young lives she influenced. She was also a member of the First Presbyterian Church of Port Gibson. She was active in the community, participating in Whispers in the Cedars, the Port Gibson Heritage Trust, backstage at the Blue Barn Theatre, and visiting the residents at the Claiborne County Nursing Home. One year, she helped with the Port Gibson Baptist Church Vacation Bible School. She always had a project she was working on.

If she wasn’t painting, sanding, or refinishing something, she was trying to keep Scott (Toby) in line. She adored him and was a beautiful example of a loving, giving, supportive mother. On more than one occasion she said, “Toby, you can’t wear someone else’s shoes, but you can try them on.” She loved history, Idlewild, Port Gibson, and chocolate. She had an extensive vocabulary which she used to win at Scrabble and Wordscape. She had a quick wit and was a joy to be around. She knew how to make everyone feel loved.

Visitation will be at Idlewild on Tuesday, June 4, 6-9pm. Service will be held at the First Presbyterian Church of Port Gibson on Wednesday, June 5 beginning at 11:00 am with burial to follow at Idlewild.
