Margaret Neill Davis passed away peacefully at her home in Little Rock on November 14, 2019 at the age of 94.

Margaret was born on August 27, 1925 in Greenville, MS. She was preceded in death by her husband of 33 years, Howell N. Davis of Pine Bluff, her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Ossian Chunne Neill of Natchitoches, LA, and her sister Mrs. Roland Jones, Jr. (Adele) of Lula, MS. She is survived by her children, J. Mark Davis (Christy), Neill P. Davis (Ruth) of Houston, Stephen C. Davis (Robin), and Lisa D. Althoff (Bob), along with eleven grandchildren - Spencer, Elise, Callie, Lauren, Katherine, Emmy, Mary Kate, Andrea, Allison, Caroline, and Margaret Anne.

Margaret graduated with honors from Northwestern State College in Natchitoches, Louisiana with a BS in Business Administration, and was a member of Delta Sigma Epsilon sorority. After graduation, she moved to Memphis, TN and worked for Union Planters Bank, Eastern Airlines, and then First National Bank where she met her husband Howell, who was a bank examiner with the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. Margaret and Howell were married in Memphis in 1953, and after a honeymoon in Florida they moved to Pine Bluff when Howell accepted a position with Simmons Bank.

For the next 33 years, Margaret devoted her life to raising her four children and supporting Howell until his sudden death in 1986. She was a true Southern Lady and a loving mother and grandmother to all her family. Margaret lived a full, courageous, and dignified life, and will be dearly missed by her family and many admirers.

The family would like to express our gratitude for the care given to our mother over the last several months by Margaret Williams, Edith Chandler, and Veola Jefferson with SeniorKare of Little Rock.

A private graveside service will be held in Pine Bluff.

Memorials are requested to be made to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, 262 Danny Thomas Place, Memphis, TN 38105, or a charity of your choice.

To all of the Davis family,

Please accept my deepest sympathy regarding the loss of your Mother. My parents, Helen and Rudy Martin, Sr. were very close friends with your parents. Dad worked at the bank too, and he and your Dad shared many laughs there. I remember that at Christmas time my folks would visit several families that had youngsters, and yours was one of them.

I got to know Stephen when we were both in the Mortgage Loan business, and I’ve enjoyed serving with Lisa as a Chalice Bearer at St. Andrew’s Anglican Church. If you haven’t heard the “hot chocolate” story get her to tell it to you!

Your folks were special people to me.
