Frances Evelyn Janway Davis, native of Eldorado, Arkansas, and a longtime resident of Baker, Louisiana passed away on her 91st birthday, March 10, 2018. She was a follower of Jesus Christ, a beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, great great-grandmother, devoted wife, caring sister, and consistent friend. Frances was a retired East Baton Rouge Parish bus driver and spoke many times of this opportunity in her life to influence children. She loved traveling and spent years seeing the country with her husband and family (and meeting friends along the way). Frances was a faithful volunteer “Pink Lady” at Lane Regional Medical Center and served into her 90th year. She rarely met a stranger, and was quick to use this gift to strike up conversations, build relationships, and share a few parables.

The graveside service and burial will follow in the Hillcrest Memorial Gardens, Baker.

Frances is survived by her husband of 74 years, William Harvey Davis; her children, Therese Landry (Ted), Bill Davis (Peggy), Shelia Brister (Marshall), Dewey Davis (Patty); 10 grandchildren, Bo Landry (Stacy), Tracy Miller (Christian), Timothy Davis (Jenna), Troy Murphy (Elizabeth), Dixie Daigle (Craig), Justin Brister (Tiffany), Jacob Davis (Holly), Aimee Stablier (Jonathan), Megan Kirkindoll (Grayson), and Ashlyn Davis; 21 great grandchildren; 1 great great grandchild; sisters, Dorothy Lierly, Jeanette Mars, brother, Ray Janway (Betty).

Frances is preceded in death by her parents, Thomas and Carrie Janway; siblings, Cecil Janway, Ercil Culbreth and Margie McLaughlin; Great-Grandson, Noah Daigle.
