Karin Marie Davis

Karin Marie Davis was born September 14, 1966, on Eglin Airforce Base in Fort Walton Beach, Florida. She went to be with Jesus on August 2, 2019, in Asheville, NC.

Karin is survived by Rev. Adrian Davis, her husband of 32 years; her son Rev. Aaron Davis and wife Ashley of San Antonio; her daughter Makayla of Sylva; two grandchildren Jack Watson Davis and Charity Joy Davis; her parents Rev. Harry Bush and wife Marie; brother Rev. Tom Bush and wife Kaye; brother Steve Bush; brother Michael Bush; and numerous nieces and nephews. 

Karin was raised in Niceville, Florida. During her girlhood, some of Karin’s favorite pastimes were fishing with her Grandaddy, Jackson Myers and gardening with her Grandma, Ruth Myers. When Karin was nineteen, she met Adrian, her lifelong sweetheart, and married him after just seven short months. Shortly after marrying Adrian, Karin began her career in medical billing which she would continue her whole life. Karin’s greatest joy in life was her family. She was an adoring mother to Aaron, best of friends with Makayla, a doting grandma to Jack and Joy, and a travel partner and loyal friend to Adrian. 

During their nearly thirty years of ministry together, Adrian & Karin Davis were pastors of four different congregations in three different states. Karin’s passions in ministry were teaching Sunday school, skillfully playing piano, and singing wholeheartedly in worship to her Savior.  

Despite facing several serious health challenges during the last ten years of her life, Karin was an exemplary wife, mother, friend, first lady, and employee. She faced these difficulties with grace and fortitude. While her smile, encouragement, and daily presence will be missed, Karin’s influence on her family, her church, and her world will continue on in the lives she impacted. 

Funeral Services will be held 11:00 am Tuesday August 6, 2019 in the Chapel of Appalachian Funeral Services with the Rev. Ron Liles officiating. The family will receive friends from 9:30 to 11:00 am prior to the Service at the Funeral Home.

My heart goes out to all of you. I worked with Karin at Mission CBO for several years. She was a lovely lady. I always enjoyed seeing pictures and hearing stories about her grandson. I always thought she would make a great "Mrs. Claus". Rachel Lawson
