Anna was born on August 29, 1930, in Morehead City, North Carolina. With a true love for the Cape, not only did she enjoy her trips there, but she was also proud to own and operate Cape Lookout Gift Shop on Harkers Island. Anna believed in her community and stood by her beliefs, which even included running for County Commissioner. Anna wasn’t afraid to tell you what she thought. She was known to always stand up for her kids but if they were in the wrong, she’d be sure to correct them.
Anna was a former member of Harkers Island Methodist Church and later attended Free Grace Wesleyan Church. Sunday dinners were her favorite time, she always made them special for her family which often included the best blueberry pies you can imagine, along with her delicious oyster dressing. She enjoyed oyster roasts at the shore and eating her homemade cornbread which was always accompanied by a cold Pepsi.
She is survived by her daughter, Sandra Louise Gaskill and husband Elbert C. Gaskill of Harkers Island; sons, Bertram McVae Davis and wife Lori Ann Davis of Williston, Jeffery Allen Davis and wife Christine Holland Davis of Beaufort, and Stacy McVae Davis Jr. and wife Kim Boyd Davis of Morehead City; grandchildren, Stephanie Willis, Clint Gaskill Jr., Richard Gaskill, Jillian Bass, Cecily Glancy, Jeffrey Allen Davis Jr., Sara Abigail Davis, Hannah Davis Chadwick, Gaston Leon Davis, Patricia K. Hunnings, Stacy M. Davis III, and Hilary Davis; and great-grandchildren, Emily Gaskill, Carter Gaskill, Deborah Brabble, Gabrielle Gillikin, Walter Glancy, Nina Glancy, Lexie Chadwick, Cole Chadwick, Dean Roberts, Gabriel Davis, and Cam Hunnings.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband in 2014, Stacy McVae Davis; sister, Bertie Lee Meyers; daughter, Rebecca Kay Davis; infant son, Stacy M. Davis Jr.; and infant grandson, Christopher Davis.
