The longtime West Baltimore resident was 80.

Gladys E. Miller was born and raised in Baltimore. She was a 1948 graduate of Frederick Douglass High School.

For many years until retiring in the 1980s, Mrs. Davis worked as a special education teacher in city public schools.

In the late 1970s, she also had co-owned and operated a catering business with her husband of 61 years, Edward Davis, who died in February.

Mrs. Davis also served as a caregiver to many relatives and neighbors.

Her hobbies included gardening and spending summers at the beach, where she enjoyed swimming in the ocean. She also liked entertaining family and friends and presiding over crab feasts and backyard cookouts.

Services will be held at 11 a.m. Dec. 29 at Vaughn Greene Funeral Home, 8728 Liberty Road, Randallstown.

Surviving are two sisters, Patsy R. Gordon and Gwendolyn E. Abney, both of Baltimore; seven grandchildren; 21 great-grandchildren; and four great-great-grandchildren. Her sons predeceased her: Robert S. Davis died in 1980 and Lamont A. Davis died in 1994.
