Doris Davis also known as “Pookie” and “Pook Love From Up Above” was born in Brooklyn, New York at Kings County Hospital on October 14, 1958 to the late Dorothy Davis. Doris departed from us on Friday July 24, 2020.
As a child she attended Gershwin Junior High School and Southshore High School where she ran track. Due to underlying health issues she was not able to run anymore. Doris worked for Victoria Seasonings Factory, made samples of rugs, packed bed and bath supplies and worked for New York City Parks Department as a cleaner.
Doris enjoyed spending time with her children, grandchildren and family, as well as brag about them and the things they did for her. Doris was the life of the party. She loved to listen to music, dance, laugh, call you in the middle of the night to tell you a story, and showed love to random people she didn’t know.
Anyone that knew Doris knew when she stepped in the room she was going to turn your frown upside down. She was going to make everyone laugh and enjoy the time she was spending with them. She was the most lovable, funniest, and caring person you could have known. She opened up her home to any and everyone who needed a place to stay or just wanted to be in her presence. She would also pop up at your house (uninvited) just to tell you she love you. To know Doris was to love her and she loved you right back. She was enjoying life and trying to make the best of every moment.
Doris leaves to cherish her memory: her two sons Rahiem Davis, Devine Davis, four grandchildren Rahiem (R.J) Davis Jr, Devine (D.J) Davis Jr, Rain Charise “Rainy”Davis, Carlos Young, Daughter-in-law Chantel Davis, future Daughter-in-law Karina Bethea, four sisters Vera Davis, Jacqueline Chapelle, Veronica “Black Beauty“ Davis,, Kimberley “Dookie Butt” Davis, two brothers Thomas Davis Sr, Eddie Davis, her life long friend whom she also considered her son Jamie “2 Pound” Bing, and a host of devoted nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews, cousins and friends.
She was preceded in death by her sister Yvonne Davis, nephew Tyree “Eazy” Davis, great niece Destiny Davis, and great nephew Lameek Davis.
