Mary Davis Winder, 93, went to be with the Lord on November 28, 2020. She was born in Essex County, Virginia, on January 21, 1927 to the late Melvin and Nettie Davis. In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her husband Bradley Winder and children, Nancy, Charlotte, and Kenneth. She is survived by her sister, Dot Pate; brother, Bernard Davis; sons; James (Helen) and David (Jane); grandchildren, Toni (Juan), Stacie (John), Brad (Andrea), Nathan, Lindsey (Grayson), Nicole; great-grandchildren, Scott (Courtney), Haley (Jeff), Jaegan, Bailey, Cameron, Cohen, Brighton; great-great grandson, Teddy. Mary was a member of Faith Memorial Church and then later in life became a member of Heritage Baptist Church Mary’s faith was strong and it saw her through many tough times, including the loss of 3 children. She was an avid reader and started every day with her coffee and her Bible. She was always in the middle of a book and had a paper bag full of books to read next (thank you Joyce & Kathy). One of Mary’s greatest joys was cooking for family and friends. “Nanny” was known for several special dishes including her cherries in the snow, coconut cake, macaroni and cheese, and her favorite rolls. All these recipes are treasured by her grandchildren. The family sincerely thanks Mary”™s special friends and caregivers; Matesha, Judy, & Melissa for their kindness and compassion in caring for Mary. Also, we offer our sincere gratitude to her sister, Dot, for all her love and generosity for “Sis” over the years, and especially the last months of her life. Mary will also be forever remembered by her numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and extended family and dear friends. There will be no service, and the burial will be private.

    I’m very sorry for this loss. I only met Mary a few times, at family holidays, but I really liked her.
