Obituary for Michelle Marie Davis of Aberdeen

Michelle Marie Davis, 45, of Aberdeen passed peacefully at home on September 12, 2022.

The family will hold a private celebration of her life.

Born in Nicosia, Cyprus, she was the youngest daughter of “Penny” Stephane W. Anderson (Robert Anderson) and Brigadier General Walter C. Hersman (Inge Dubbeld Hersman). Michelle was raised in Jordan, Germany, England, Spain, Alabama, Virginia and North Carolina. She graduated from Lee County High School. Michelle was a talented cook and baker and attended the culinary program at Sandhills Community College and most recently worked as a food and beverage manager at Legacy Golf Links.

Michelle was mother of “Sammie” Chloe Jade Rivera and Violet Roxanne Davis. She was the sister of Debbie Hersman (Niel Plummer) and Valerie Barlowe (Carey Barlowe) and stepsister to Rob Pye (Jenny Pye). She was also aunt to Taylor, Wilson and Jackson Plummer and Megan and Cameron Barlowe. She is survived by several partners and friends who cared for her and her children.

Michelle was a cancer survivor and a diva with a wicked sense of humor and a great laugh. She loved animals – she trained Dobermans, raised goats and free range chickens, and bred Abyssinian cats. She was an artist (painting everything from canvases to eggs), and she was an avid researcher and delved deeply into topics from local geology to making soaps and lotions.
