Virginia Leilani Davis
November 21, 1928 – November 14, 2021
Virginia Leilani Davis passed away suddenly of natural causes at her home in Kendall County near Boerne on November 14, 2021, one week before her birthday. Although her physical and mental health had been declining in the past several years, her death came as a shock to all who knew and loved her.
She was born to Lawrence Maxwell and Isabelle Anne Parker on November 21, 1928, in Honolulu, Territory of Hawaii, while her father had been stationed there during his time in Navy. Her middle name is a testament to the fact that she was born in Hawaii. This middle name has passed down to her daughter, Linda, and her granddaughter, Amanda.
After her father’s retirement the family lived in Raleigh, North Carolina, and later moved to Austin, where she graduated from Austin High School in 1946. From there she attended The University of Texas at Austin, majoring in business administration. Here she was introduced to her future husband, Ed.
Ed and Virginia were married on September 26, 1948, in Austin. Later, they moved to San Antonio. Virginia took care of the house and their growing family, which eventually included three sons and two daughters. After the children got older she found time to participate in activities outside the home, such as volunteering at the Baptist hospital, substitute teaching and Eastern Star. She also sang in the choir and taught Sunday school at Parkhills Baptist Church.
Later, she and Ed found time to travel around the United States and the world with family and friends. Due to her outgoing personality, she and Ed made friends in numerous places where they had traveled and kept in touch with them for many years thereafter.
Virginia is pre-deceased by her parents; her two brothers, Lawrence Maxwell Parker Jr. and Gene Owen Parker; and her sister, Florence Isabelle Crone. She is survived by her husband, Thomas Edgar “Ed” Davis; and her five children, Thomas Edgar Davis Jr. and his wife, Lynda, Paul Kevin Davis and his wife, Jerri, Janice Ann Sweet, Linda Leilani Hare and her husband, Bill, and Alan Keith Davis and his wife, Martha; six grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; and two great-great-grandchildren.
