Wanda Jeffries Davis
Wanda Jeffries Davis, age 75, of Shalimar, Fla., died Monday, Feb. 16, 1998, at Eglin Air Force Base Hospital.
She was born on Nov. 12, 1922, to the late Warnie P. and Betty J. Jeffries of Ronceverte, W.Va. She was the beloved wife of Maj. Gen. Woody Davis Jr., U.S. Air Force retired.
Wanda was a devoted Christian who enjoyed each day of life to its fullest. She clung to her faith to the end, and it sustained her in a tremendous personal battle against cancer throughout a lengthy illness.
Her childhood was lived in the White Sulphur Springs area of West Virginia where she graduated from high school as an honor student with many scholarship and activity awards. She moved to Newport News, Va., where she continued her education through the University of Virginia while working as a telephone operator. It was there that she met Lt. Woody Davis, who was enroute overseas to his first combat tour in World War II. They were married in 1944 and began a life and career together that spanned 35 years in the Army Air Corps and the U.S. Air Force.
Wherever Wanda went she always engaged herself in useful work supporting people of the base and community around her. She was very active with the Red Cross, serving as a Grey Lady at many hospitals around the United States and overseas. After moving 31 times, Woody retired and they settled in Shalimar in 1976.
She was a caring wife and a patient and loving mother and grandmother. If the number of friends one had counted as wealth, and in a way it does, she was a very rich person. She endured and survived many health problems over a long period. In her final days, Wanda wanted to say a special "thank you" to all the caring people who helped her so much at Eglin Air Force Base Hospital, Keesler Air Force Base Medical Center and Hospice of Northwest Florida, and to her many friends and neighbors, especially those in the active and retired Air Force, Army and Navy, whose support meant so much.

III and Evelyn Davis of Brussels, Belgium; daughter, Debra Ann Lewis of Fort Walton Beach; grandchildren, Guenevere Davis Wischmann and husband Eric of Knoxville, Tenn., Jessica Flood and Andrew Flood of Fort Walton Beach, and Bryan Woodard Davis of Brussels; sister-in-law, Betty Davis Lyons and husband Don of Selma, Ala.; and many nieces and nephews.
