On February 23, 1936 in the big state of Texas, in a little town called Lufkin, Jessie Lee Carrington, was born to the late Ellis Carrington, Sr. and Gladys (Johnson) Carrington, the 3rd child of this union.

Jessie accepted Christ at an early age and was baptized by the late Pastor Joseph J. Finley of the New Zion Baptist Church in Lufkin. In 1952, at the age of 16, Jessie was the talk of the town, (that being Lufkin) in possession of all the rare qualities of beauty, elegance, style and grace, and a real Southern belle. Jessie was crowned Ms. Texas and how could she loose with a smile like that! In 1953, after graduating from Dunbar High School, Jessie relocated to California and attended San Francisco City College. Jessie was employed by the Armor Meat Company in South San Francisco as an assembly worker and gave 13 years of service.

On May 18, 1963, Jessie married A.B. Davis. Together they raised four beautiful daughters: Wanda, Cynthia, Dee Dee and Nina, Jessie expressed quite often that she always wanted her family to stay close which brought her the greatest joy. Over the years, she enjoyed life to the fullest, being a devoted wife and mother. Jessie loved to cook, bake, watch soap operas, game shows and don't forget the Westerns. Talk about shop-til-you-drop! Going shopping with Jessica was no joke, oh, but so much fun! Clothes, jewelry, stocking up on her favorite foods, smelling good, wearing her sweet perfumes, all these things she would do wearing that beautiful smile of hers and she also kept an immaculate house. Oh yes, she was the best housewife. She also enjoyed her regular casino trips to Las Vegas, Red Hawk or Reno on any given day of the week. Oh, and one more thing, her house was always full of uncontrollable laughter!

She leaves to cherish her memory, her devoted and loving husband, A.B.; four daughters: Wanda J. (Darrell) Williams. Cynthia L. Taylor, Dee Dee (Russell) Johnson, all of San Francisco, CA and Nina D. (Midas) Davis of Hayward, CA; three grandsons: Terrence (Angel), Ivan W. (NaeNae) Jackson Jr. and Christopher D. Taylor; nine great-grandchildren: Jadan, Trinity, Terrence Jr. and Tamia Spencer, Isaiah, Ivan III, Imani ad Iyana Jackson; brothers: Ellis Carrington Jr. of Lufkin, TX and Charles E. Carrington of Manteca, CA; daughter-in-law, Doreen A. (Glenn-deceased) Spencer; and a heavenly host of cousins, nephews, nieces and long time friends.
