Patsy was born on Jan. 15, 1933, in Danville, the daughter of James and Gurlie (Sharp) Hardman. She married Hubert Davis on May 15, 1969, at Lincoln United Methodist Church in Danville. He preceded her in death on Oct. 6, 2012.

Patsy had worked at Kmart and was often recognized as “the Kmart lady” after her retirement. Patsy enjoyed watching "The Bold and The Beautiful," trips to the beauty shop and spending time with family. The highlight of her day was talking to Macy and hearing all about her day.
