Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Nancy Sue (Humbert) Davis, age 80, a resident of Peachtree City, formerly of Naperville IL, went peacefully to be with the Lord on Wednesday, September 1, 2021.
Nancy was born to Frances and Burdell Humbert on October 2, 1940, in Peoria, IL. She grew up in Cedar Rapids, IA, and attended the University of Iowa, where she met her husband of 50 years, Gregg. They were married in July of 1960. Nancy worked for a short time in the auto insurance industry, then became a full-time homemaker and mom. She also was a faithful volunteer throughout her life, including leading recovery groups at her church and serving at a food pantry/clothes closet for over 20 years. She and Gregg provided a temporary home to those in need and were generous in their support of compassion ministries. Nancy loved to worship the Lord with music and voice. She played clarinet in the Calvary Church orchestra and lifted her voice to praise Jesus in song at every opportunity. Nancy appreciated the beauty of God’s creation and saw him in the detail of every flower in her lovely gardens and in the amazing variety of birds that visited her numerous feeders. She was remarkably creative, sewing clothing for her young girls, knitting afghans, quilting with her mother-in-law, creating jewelry art and making candles. Nancy painted with her grandkids and generously provided music lessons for them, although none played the bagpipes as she did as a young woman!
Nancy was known by all as a joyful, loving and hopeful woman, always ready with some encouragement or a kind smile. She loved to laugh and took much delight in her relationship with the Lord. Her genuine love for God and his Word spilled out into every relationship and activity. Nancy was a loyal friend and loved people well, keeping family time with her adult children and grandchildren a priority and enjoying time spent with her many friends. She was constant in her hope that God was at work in the lives of those she loved, and that his perfect will would be accomplished. Nancy lived a life surrendered to her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and by his grace was faithful to him until her last breath here on earth. Her family is forever grateful for the constant effort she made to point us to our Creator and his perfect love. Nancy’s legacy of commitment to Christ and faithful love for her family and friends will continue to inspire us until we meet her again in the presence of our Heavenly Father.
Nancy is survived by her three daughters: Chrystal Gray of Acworth, GA, Sheryl (Michael) Stille of Peachtree City, GA, and Rachel Bobak of Peachtree City, GA. She is also survived by seven grandchildren: Ryan (Michelle) Stille, Josiah (Jackie) Gray, Aaron (Tanya) Gray, Clayton (Hayley) Stille, Madeline Bobak, Alex Bobak, Ethan Bobak and 15 great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband, Gregg.
