Helen L. Davis, age 90, of Hampton, Tennessee went home to be with the Lord on Friday, May 14, 2021, at her residence.  Helen was born in Carter County to the late Jacob B.

Helen was a very meticulous housewife and a devout Christian lady.  She was proud of being a veteran’s wife and was a wonderful and devoted mother.  She was a member of Rittertown Baptist Church for close to 50 years.  She had worked at the old Carter County Memorial Hospital in Elizabethton as a housekeeper until she met her husband and became a housewife.  Helen enjoyed making and painting ceramics, cooking and baking but above all else, she loved her family and her grandchildren.
Those left to cherish her many wonderful memories include her son, Kevin Scott Davis, of Hampton; her daughter, Vicky Lynn Taylor, of Jonesborough; her grandchildren, Harley Cheyenne Davis, of Elizabethton, Misty Dawn Dean, of Simpsonville, SC, Joshua Ashley Estep, of Houston, TX and Justin Lee Taylor, of Simpsonville, SC.  Several great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, friends and neighbors also survive.
