Nancy Emerson-Davis

Jan 8, 1945 - Mar 19, 2015


Nancy Emerson Davis, born Jan. 8, 1945 in East Orange, NJ. passed away March 19, 2015 in Sacramento. Wife of Allan Davis, loving mother of Brian Emerson (Kimberley), and Tricia Alvarez (Abdiel), loving grandmother of Zachary Emerson, Micah, Devon, Jonah and Jaidyn Alvarez, step mother of Cody and Clay Davis, and step grandmother of Madison Parks. Also survived by sister Lynda Taylor (Chris), brothers Richard (Kathy) and Gary Benvenuti (Martha), and numerous cousins, nieces, and nephews. Preceded in death by her parents Joseph and Nancy Benvenuti. Nancy graduated from Encina High School in 1962, where she was voted “Best Dressed”, acquired many lifelong friends, and served on the reunion committee for many years. After attending American River College, Nancy pursued her interest in cosmetology by graduating from Salvatore’s Beauty School and working at EJ’s Beauty Salon. Nancy always had a passion for decorating and design, using her talents extensively through real estate developing and investing. Her latest project, Milagro Centre in Carmichael, exemplifies her flair for thinking “out of the box”. Following her mantra “Love liberates; it doesn’t bind, if you get…give, if you learn…teach”, Nancy was devoted to many charities throughout the Sacramento area including Benvenuti Field at Capital Christian Center. She traveled extensively throughout Carmichael and parts of the greater Sacramento area, later striking out to Napa and occasionally the Bay Area. Nancy’s attendance will truly be missed at her Grandchildren’s numerous soccer and basketball games. Most important to Nancy was her devotion to her Christian faith; she knew that she would live on in Heaven with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Services will be held at Capital Christian Center, located at 9470 Micron Ave in Sacramento, Sunday March 29th at 2:30pm.
