Melanie Gray Davis, age 43, of Woodstock, Georgia, died Saturday, August 12, 2023, at her home after a brief illness. She was a native of Uvalda and a member of the Uvalda Baptist Church. Melanie attended Vidalia City Schools and graduated from Vidalia High School in 1998. While at VHS, she was a cheerleader and participated in the Sound Tribe Band as a clarinetist. Also, Melanie was honored to be the Homecoming Queen in 1997. Her principle after-school activity was ballet dancing for fourteen years in Mrs. Christine Wooten’s Ballet Troupe. After high school, Melanie attended the University of Georgia for two years before transferring to Mercer University School of Pharmacy in Atlanta where she received her Doctorate in Pharmacy in 2003. After working for two years at several Kroger pharmacies in the Atlanta area, she was employed at Kennestone Hospital in Marietta for fifteen years.
Melanie is preceded in death by her mother, Carolyn Davis; an infant sister, Alison Davis; and grandparents, Quinton and Elise Davis, and Harry and Eloise Gray.
Survivors include her children Sydney and Grayson Betteridge and Jaxsyn Dailey, both of Woodstock; father, Jimmy Davis of Uvalda; an uncle, John Larry Davis of Santa Claus, a cousin, Alexander Davis and wife Cheryl of Aiken, South Carolina; and a special aunt, Rebecca Davis of the Charlotteville Community.
Melanie was an avid Georgia Bulldogs and Atlanta Braves fan, but her true and dearest love was her three precious children. Melanie was always a smiling, friendly, energetic, caring person and will be sorely missed by all who knew her.
