  1. I loved her like a grandma I will miss her. She always raised her arms and gave me a hug. I would never walked pass her without giving her a hug and covering her up if she was cold.

  2. Aunt Mae was a wonderful Aunt…not to mention a hard worker! She always welcomed all the Davis nieces and nephews in her home and RARELY got mad at any of us for some of the stuff we'd pull. I remember the last time I saw her at the nursing home. We were walking down the hall and I saw this one resident's door LOADED with stuff. I leaned over to her and said: "Gee, Aunt Mae, you think that's a bit of overkill?" Well, she sure laughed about that and said: "Boy, Janet, you got THAT right." Rest in heavenly peace, Aunt Mae. With Love and deepest sympathy. Janet

  3. To The 3 Ts ( Tina, Tammy and Tonya) we are sorry for the loss of your grandmother. We know she was very special to you all. I know your grandparents were an important part of your lives as well as the town of Windsor. She always had a smile on her face and a friendly hello. Janet and Larry

  4. I will always remember her giving me some small token for a cheap price when I was,a kid when she and Uncle Ralph had the some store in Windsor..miraculously always for the amount of change in my pocket lol. She was always smiling and laughing. I always thought she,was so pretty. In my adolescence I had some skin problems, and she helped me with Mary Kay teaching me about skin care and telling me how pretty I was… she made me feel so much better and gave me confidence . That meant slot to me at 13 yrs old.. I can remember her involvement in the 4-H group too. But mostly, her generous heart and her loving personality. Now she shines as a beautiful star in the Heavens… my condolences to all of you. Rest easy, Aunt MAE. Much love to you all.. Audrey Cameron Montague:heart:
