Martha Davis Obituary

Martha Sue Davis, 82, of Youngstown, passed away on Saturday October 7, 2023, at her home.

Martha was born on January 9, 1941, in Eastview Kentucky, the daughter of the late Erva and Audrey King Powell.

Martha grew up in Louisville, Kentucky where she met her late husband David Davis who was in the U.S. Army and stationed at Fort Knox. After marrying, Marth and David moved to Youngstown. She was a member of Evangel Baptist Church.

Martha had a very special connection with each of her grandchildren, they were all her pride and joy.

She enjoyed spending time with them and telling stories of growing up with her siblings on the farm. She always talked about her pet chicken she would sneak into the family home where her parents would make her take it back to the barn. She enjoyed taking her grandchildren to lunch and attending their school functions. While her grandchildren were growing up Martha could often be found at a craft store with one of the grandchildren buying craft supplies or materials to make costumes for them. Martha also enjoyed going to car shows, out to breakfast at What’s Cooki’n, and shopping with her friend Rosemary Dubaj.

Martha is survived by her son John (Sherry) Davis, Carolyn Bannon, and brother Donald Powell;

Grandchildren Christopher Scafuri, Joe Scafuri, Jackie Scafuri (James Bell), and Samantha Davis; Greatgrandchildren Saint Scafuri, Natalie Bell, and Colton Bell.

Besides her parents, Martha is preceded in death by her husband David Davis, and her daughter Susan Longoria, and sister Kathryn Johnson.

Martha had been adamant to her family that she did not want any services.
