Terri was born in Salisbury, Maryland on June 12, 1953. She was one of three siblings born to the union of the late Reginal and Ida Janey Davis. Her early Christian training was received at the First Baptist Church in Mappsville, Virginia under the leadership of Rev. Boon & Rev. Heron and the "strict but loving" guidance of her grandparents, the late Fred and Jane M. Davis. After moving to Baltimore, MD, she later joined Flat Rock Baptist Church and remained a devoted member until her recent illness and demise.
Terri was educated in the public schools of Accomack County, Virginia and was a 1971 graduate of Parksley High School in Parksley, VA. Her education continued at Coppin State College (now Coppin State University) in Baltimore, MD, where she majored in English. She was employed by the state of Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene for 28 years until her retirement in 2007.
Terri enjoyed fashion, gardening, decorating, hosting, puzzles, and spending every possible moment with her granddaughter. She was a warm, sweet, kind, loving, and generous mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin, and friend to us all. She never forgot a birthday, reached out with calls and cards to remind you of her love, checked in to make sure you were okay, and gave whatever she had to help others.
Terri leaves a legacy of love to her son, Terrence Reginald Davis of Baltimore, MD; her daughter, Chanel Mar Tia Davis of Charlotte, NC; one sister, Margo Davis Tyler of Portsmouth, VA; one granddaughter, Shiya Sincere Davis of Baltimore, MD; two goddaughters, Andrea Sephes and Erika Fenwick, both of Balitmore, MD; one special cousin and close childhood friend, Vernell Davis of Mappsville, VA; life-long and devoted friends, Earl and Kathy Fenwick of Owings Mills, MD, Dorothy "Dottie" Lowery, Darrell Harris, and Maggie Crawford, all of Baltimore, MD; and a host of cousins, extended family, and friends.
