She moved to Riverside, Calif. when she married Joe P. Davis of Hampton.  Together

they traveled, and met and shared the company of many friends. 

     They had been residents of Pahrump for several years.

     Gay’s artist brush was a crochet hook. She was a master at making beautiful

afghans and shawls. Many babies have been blessed with the beautiful dresses and

blankets she crocheted and trimmed with ribbons and beads.  If you where given one of those dresses or blankets, you truly have a treasure to enjoy and cherish. She was so very loving and generous and was always making something she wanted to share with someone she had met.

     Gay was predeceased by her parents, Floyd and Obra Smith Day; three brothers, Earl Day, Raymond Day and Ronald Day; four sisters, Goldie Gillispie, Lou Mavity, Myrtle Day, and Phyllis Cook.

     Gay is survived by her loving husband of 19 years, Joe P. Davis; her daughter, Shelly Robinson Estes and her husband Tyler of Richmond; and her sister, Deline Day Laxton and her husband Thomas Laxton of Kingsland, Ga.

     Private services will be held in California.  If you would like to give a memorial to Gay’s life, please consider donating to the Wounded Warriors.
