Carol Bradley Davis, a hospital volunteer who also worked in real estate sales, died of stroke complications Sunday at the Gilchrist Center for Hospice Care. The former Cockeysville resident was 92.

Born Carol Bradley in New York City, she was the daughter of Maj. Gen. Follett Bradley and grew up in several U.S. locations as well as in Panama.

She moved to Baltimore in 1948, when she married Frederick Adams Savage Jr., a New England Life Insurance agent. For many years she lived on the 100-acre Broadmead Farm in Cockeysville.

She enjoyed flower gardening in Cockeysville and Cooperstown, N.Y., where she spent her summers. For many years she did volunteer work for Ladew Topiary Gardens in Harford County.

She was a volunteer at Johns Hopkins and Childrens hospitals.

In the 1970s she sold homes for a real estate business, Chase, Fitzgerald and Davis.

Mrs. Davis played tennis and golf. She also enjoyed traveling, dancing, needlepoint, and playing bridge and piano. She also took enrichment courses at the College of Notre Dame of Maryland.

A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Thursday at Christ Episcopal Church, Cooperstown. A second service will be held at 2 p.m. Sept. 19 at St. Thomas Church, St. Thomas Lane, Owings Mills, where she was a communicant.

Survivors include a son, Daniel Trimper IV, of Ocean City; three daughters, Amanda Savage Mahoney and Fredericka Savage Shaw, both of Glyndon, and Letitia Trimper Hurst of Orlando, Fla.; a sister, Elizabeth Bradley Sorte of Westminster, Colo.; 14 grandchildren; and nine great-grandchildren. Mrs. Davis outlived her three husbands, including Daniel Trimper III and Dr. W. Bowdoin Davis.
