Gail Snakenberg Davis

March 31, 1945 — June 27, 2023

Gail Snakenberg Davis, of Westminster, SC, graced this world with her presence on March 31, 1945 in Washington, DC, and found her eternal peace on June 27, 2023, in Greer, SC.
She is survived by her brother Randolph Franklin “Sonny” Snakenberg, her sister Edwina Bayne
Trask, her daughters Cynthia Gayle Davis and Kimberly Ann Davis, her son Alan Byron Davis, three
grandchildren, and one great-grandchild. She was predeceased by her father Randolph Poulton
Snakenberg, her mother Nettie Belle Snakenberg, and her sisters Nancy Lee Francis and Shirley
Mae Bradley.
Gail and her family moved to Tampa, FL, from Raleigh, NC, when she was ten years old. She moved
to St. Petersburg, FL, in 1964, and lived there for much of her life. Gail always had a love for the
mountains, so in 1997, she moved to Greenville, SC. She loved to hike and was a member of a
hiking club. In 1999, she bought a house in Travelers Rest, SC, and retired from Lockheed Martin in
2010. She loved plants and flowers and working in her yard. She had one of the prettiest yards on
the block—people commented about it all the time. She was a big tennis fan and even took lessons
for a bit. In 2017, she moved to Westminster, SC, to live out the rest of her days. She loved that she
could walk just about anywhere she needed to go. Anyone who visited her would always find her
working in her yard or watching tennis. She was very independent and a little rough around the
edges, but she loved her family and it upset her thinking she was a burden on them during her final
days. We take comfort in knowing that when her time came, she wasn’t alone. She passed away
peacefully with her oldest daughter, Cynthia, and other caregivers by her side.

Her family will celebrate her life with an intimate Memorial on July 22, at the home of Gail’s
granddaughter, in Greenville, SC. Per Gail’s wishes to have her ashes scattered, immediately
following the Memorial, her children and other family members will take her on one last hike on
Caesar’s Head Mountain.
In lieu of sending flowers, the family is asking for a tree, bush, or flower to be planted in her Gail’s
