Saralyn Delois Ridgeway Davis, a beloved wife, devoted homeschool mother, and cherished member of her church and community, passed away on September 29, 2023, after a courageous battle with cancer. She was 48 years old.
Born on November 4, 1974, Saralyn was the loving daughter of David Ridgeway Jr. and the late Virginia Ridgeway. She was a shining example of humility, simplicity, and meekness throughout her life. Saralyn touched the hearts of those around her with her gentle spirit and unwavering commitment to her family.
Saralyn graduated from the University of Georgia, where she cultivated a passion for learning that she later instilled in her own children. She was a proud member of the Georgia Redcoat marching band, where her talent for playing the clarinet shone brightly.
On January 17, 1998, Saralyn married the love of her life, Scott Christopher Davis, with whom she shared a deep and enduring bond for over 25 years. Their love story was a testament to the power of commitment, devotion, overcoming adversity, and companionship.
Saralyn was a dedicated homeschool mother to her two children, Charles "Ridge" Davis and Evangeline "Evie" Davis, who were the center of her world. She nurtured their education and character with selfless love and diligence, instilling in them the values of giving and forgiveness that she held dear.
In addition to her passion for teaching, Saralyn had a green thumb and enjoyed gardening, canning, and tending to her homestead. She delighted in the culinary arts, often cooking and baking for her family and friends, who relished every bite of her delicious creations.
Saralyn was a faithful member of her church community, where her presence and kindness were a source of inspiration to all who knew her. Her love for reading enriched her life and allowed her to share wisdom and knowledge with those she met.
Saralyn Ridgeway Davis was a sinner saved by the grace and mercy of our Lord and savior, Jesus Christ. She leaves behind a legacy of Christ like love, humility, and tenderness that will continue to touch the lives of those who were fortunate enough to know her. She will be deeply missed by her husband, Scott; her children, Ridge and Evie; her father, David Jr; her brothers, Robert (Paula) and William (Teresa); and a host of family and friends who were blessed to have her in their lives.
