Davis, Donna Mae "Nannie" Carter (Chickamauga)

Friday, March 2, 2018

Donna Mae Carter “Nannie” Davis, 74 of Chickamauga, graduated to the final chapter in this life on Wednesday, February 28, 2018. Mrs. Donna wants to let her family and friends know that her work here in this life is done, and she received a call on Wednesday afternoon of an offer that she could not refuse - an appointment that comes with a lot of responsibilities, starting with a reunion of family and friends that she has not seen in a longtime. The reunion will include music, laughter and love, and job security will be eternally guaranteed. Sweets will be provided abundantly and then, of course, socializing, dancing and cooking, and all while God’s choir is singing songs of praise.

Donna lived most of her life in the North Georgia area and loved her church families at New Friendship Baptist Church, Old Bethel Baptist and Bethlehem Baptist Church. She had worked many years as a realtor for several agencies, and was completely devoted to her family, no matter what the circumstances. Her love for the Lord and the commitment to her family will never be matched. She will truly be missed by everyone that she ever came in contact with, but especially by those that knew her affectionately as Nannie.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Samuel Nicholas and Lenora Mae Finn Carter.

Survivors include her loving husband, Jim Davis of Chickamauga; children and spouses, Ken and Bridget Kibler of Newton, Il. and Melisa and Steve Hornsby of Chickamauga; brother, Samuel Carter of Newton, Il.; three grandchildren, Casey, Colten, Ashley Gorrell and Hannah; three great-grandchildren, Nash, Kinsley and Gus; and numerous extended family and friends.

Funeral services will be held at 1 p.m. on Saturday, March 3 in the Fort Oglethorpe Chapel, with Bro. Steve Camp and Bro. Wilton Grimes officiating. Burial will follow in the Chickamauga City Cemetery. The family will receive friends after 4 p.m. on Frida,y and prior to the service on Saturday at the funeral home.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the MaryEllen Locher Foundation, 605 Glenwood Drive, #100, Chattanooga, Tn. 37404, 423-495-4040.
