SOUTHINGTON – Percy T. Carter Davis, 72, entered into rest at 11:14 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 8, 2013, at Trumbull Memorial Hospital following a lengthy illness.

On May 18, 1996, Percy was united into marriage with John M. Davis and shared 16 years of marriage together. During the last six years, John devoted every hour of the day providing and caring for Percy, and when her health began to fail there was never a day both went without each other’s love for one another.
