Mattie (Davis) Turner was born on September 9, 1937 in Bullock County Alabama. She was the oldest daughter of Robert and Lorena Davis. Her earthly journey was completed on November 17, 2020, in Birmingham Alabama.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her sister Barbara and brother Andrew. She confessed Christ at an early age and was an active member of the Fellowship Baptist Church until her health declined. Mattie Mae, as she is known by most, was a very strong, independent, woman. She took in and raised several of her sister’s children and helped with her grandchildren as well. She was a firm and straight to the point person, showing love and guidance to everyone she knew.
She was truly a selfless person who believed in hard work and taking care of the family. She leaves to cherish her memories, her brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews, life companion John Cox, and her church family. The Staff of Carter Funeral Home is honored to support the Family of Mrs. Mattie Davis Turner with End of Life Services.
