Marilyn Jane Park Davis, 92, of Pascagoula, MS, passed away peacefully at her home on September 18, 2021. She was born on April 23, 1929, in Ocean Springs, MS, to the late John and Essie (Coleman) Park.
Marilyn married Lowell Davis on June 1, 1947 and went on to raise six children in Pascagoula. She was a member of First United Methodist Church in Pascagoula where she worked as a Kindergarten teacher and also in the nursery on Sundays. After raising her family, Marilyn worked at Brumfield’s in Singing River Mall.
