Mrs. Davis was born in Mecklenburg County, on Sept. 21, 1919 to the late James Edward and Kate Terry Lee. As a young child Rosea accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Lord and Savior and became a member of the Cedar Grove 2 Church in Clarksville. In 1944, she moved to Richmond, where she resided for forty years. She was employed as a nurse aide and later retired from Forest Hill Nursing Home. She was married to the late Ernest Davis.
Along with her parents, she was preceded in death by her two brothers, Accia Terry Sr. (Fannie) and Chester Terry.
Leaving to cherish her memories are her loving and devoted sister, Mary Elizabeth Kersey, that was by her bedside until the end; one adopted son, Darrell Martin Henderson, who cared for her for thirty-one years; two step-sisters, Octavia (Edmond), and Magaline Moore; three step-brothers, Frank Lee (Catherine), Nathaniel Lee (Lucille) and Edward Lee (Marilyn); two sisters-in-law, Martha Terry and Clara Lee; and a host of nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends.
