Jeanie Davis of Procious, WV passed away May 8, 2021 after a short illness. Jeanie is proceeded in death by parents Willie and Violet Carr. She is survived by her husband David Davis, her daughter Nikki McLaughlin (husband Jason) of Ivydale WV, daughter Kim Montgomery (husband Robert) of New Albany OH, daughter Kelly Schaffner (husband Fred) of Prescott AZ, and grandchildren Judah, Sophia, Jacob and Jesse. Jeanie retired after 28 years with the Clay County Board of Education.  She was the owner/broker and auctioneer of Jeanie’s Real Estate and Auction. Jeanie was a servant of Clay County, her family. Her love for Jesus inspired the free annual production “From the Manger to the Cross” at the Maysel Park where many in the community participated. Jeanie enjoyed bringing together the churches to provide free Thanksgiving and Christmas meal opportunities. Jeanie also loved to garden and give away her harvest come late summer.  She liked beach trips with her friends or family and to visit the Greenbrier.  She loved anything that sparkled.  Her family and friends loved her for all the sparkle she added to our lives.  A true shooting star striving to make wishes come true. The best daughter, wife and mother anyone could ask for.  So loved and will forever be missed.

Visitation will be on Wednesday, May 12, 2021 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM at Wilson Smith Funeral Home.

Dave and family,

I was a freshman at CCH when Jeanie was a senior. I got to know her in study hall. That period was the highlight of my day because of Jeanie. She was so friendly and hilariously funny we laughed the whole time. We also got in trouble with Mr Dye for being so loud. I have often thought about those times and will always cherish them. She was a sweet giving person and I am thankful I got to know her.

Please know I am truly sorry. The sunshine she gave to this world will be missed

Where do we start about Jeanie. There is only positives to say. Always smiling, talking, loved people, compassionate, hard working, giving to others and the community. So many things we all should be more conscious of. I have known her since I was fifteen years old, and that was long ago, and she never changed and that is a great testimony of who she was. She had great Faith and Courage to over come and to be a gracious lady. Our prayers for strength and faith to help each of you thru this difficult time. Anna and Jimmy Simmons

I am very sorry for the loss of such a loved one. You use the word
"sparkle", and Jeanie definitely had a personality which certainly sparkled. I was touched by her unique sincere way she would pray over the sick, and chronically I'll.

Though I only had the pleasure to be in her company a few times, I will always remember her prayers and her beautiful, sparkling personality.

Dave and Nick, I am so sorry for your loss. I think of Jeanie often and her remarkable zest for life. She stopped traffic on Corridor G to allow a mama duck and babies to cross safely. What a loss to the world. I wish you strength.
