Lucile Hodge Davis, 98, of Alford, Florida, went home to be with the Lord on Wednesday morning, April 25, 2018 at Jackson Hospital. Mrs. Davis was born in Buckingham, Florida, on June 4, 1919, to J. Perry and Frances Hodge and grew up in Laurel Hill, Fl. In 1937, she married, Joseph Percy Davis in Crestview, Florida. The couple moved to Jackson County in 1939 and settled just north of Alford where they farmed and raised seven children.

When she was no longer able to live at home, she went to live at The Chipola Nursing Pavilion, but never gave up playing the instrument she loved, playing for Sunday worship services there as well. She always loved trying to be a blessing to her fellow residents.
