Ms. Marla Elizabeth Davis, age 36, of Blackshear, passed away Friday (1/3/20) at Ascension St. Vincent’s Riverside in Jacksonville, Florida following a short illness.

Born July 6, 1983 in Blackshear, she was a lifelong resident of Pierce County. She graduated from Pierce County High School in 2001 and was an optometrist assistant at Seaside Ophthalmology in Waycross.  She was a devoted member of Remnant Church where she worked with the kid’s ministry, Generation 2:9 Kidz, and served as a small group leader.

Known for her beautiful smile and spirit, she could light up any room she entered. She was a friend to all, and always had a smile, hug, or word of encouragement.

She was preceded in death by her father, Jeffery Cavin Davis; her paternal grandparents, H.M. and Margaret Davis; her maternal grandparents, Buck and Violet Dixon; and an uncle, Harley Davis.

Survivors include her daughter, Jensi Grace Smith of Blackshear; fiancé, Josh Dwayne Corley and children, Ella, Emma, and Brooks, all of Blackshear; mother and step-father, Rene’ and Jerome Bolden of Blackshear; sister, Holly Sweat of Blackshear; aunts and uncles, Al and Bevan Dixon of Blackshear, Lynn Davis Roberts of Blackshear, and Sharon Taylor of Waycross; nieces and nephews, Zach Sweat and Leigha Sweat, both of Blackshear; cousins, Jami Davis Carter of Blackshear, Sara Davis of St. Augustine, FL, Seth Carter of Blackshear, Justin Roberts of Blackshear, Shawn Dixon of Atlanta, Bryce Dixon of Blackshear, and Adam Dixon of Blackshear; and many friends.

A funeral service will take place Sunday afternoon (1/5/20) at 3 p.m. at First Baptist Church in Blackshear with Pastor Caleb Lancaster officiating.   Burial will follow in the Blackshear City Cemetery.

The family will receive friends Saturday evening from 5-8 p.m. at First Baptist Church in Blackshear.

I'm so sorry you lost such a beautiful person. I want to give my condolence and just say yall are in my prayers. My uncle died of an asthma attack at 36 and it was hard on me and my family. I can imagine how hard this is going to be, but just know you got loved ones by your side and most important god. He can get you through anything and I know because I am a walking miracle myself and have been close to death twice. Just know their are people out there who can relate and feel your pain. Give it all to god and just know earth is not for eternity but heaven is and she will never hurt again. I'm sorry your going through this because I wouldn't wish this on no one and just remember god will strengthen you by the day and you have a lot of people praying.

Marla you are missed by so many people! I was blessed, as I got to know you at church the last few years and I could see the huge impact you made for the Kingdom of Christ in so many kids lives as well as grownups! What a great legacy to leave, even as hard as it is to say with your passing. I know you are dancing and rejoiceing in the presence of GOD Almighty who has received you with open arms, with the words, enter in Good and Faithful servant Marla! As sad as your loss is for us, I have to smile at the thought of how happy you are right now. Until we meet again my freind.

Rene and Family,
I am so sorry at the loss of your beautiful daughter. My prayers are with you, the family and friends. My heart breaks for you. We went through this back in July when we lost one of our daughters. I am praying for strength and peace for you and everyone. You do have the hope of heaven and seeing her again one day. May God Bless you and help you with Marla passing. Love and prayers.

I had the pleasure to work with Marla as her sales rep and she is amazing. She always made me feel welcome and at home. She is one of those people that you don’t forget because she treats people the best way! It’s hard for me to write this in past tense because I don’t want to think she is gone. She is and was the best of the best and I’m thankful to have been in her path.

Marla’s life on earth seems too short ,but she was so special to everyone she meet and has a lasting effect of radiance in those lives. Now she will be radiating in a different way , the way one feels when the sunshine hits your face on a glorious day. May you all feel her warmth and love surrounding your soul. We love you Marla.
