1950 Janet 2022

Janet Anne Glover Davis

September 18, 1950 — April 6, 2022

Little Rock

Janet Anne Glover Davis, of Little Rock, Arkansas was granted her Angel Wings on April 6, 2022 at the age of 71. After a long battle with cancer, she died peacefully at her home, surrounded by family. Janet was born September 18, 1950 in Honolulu, Hawaii. Being a daughter of a Chief Petty Officer in the Navy, she moved around a lot during her childhood, including Kodiak, Alaska and San Diego, California.  She eventually settled in Little Rock where she graduated from Hall High School and University of Arkansas at Little Rock. Being the adventurist that she is, Janet enjoyed several years as a flight attendant with American Airlines. 

 

Janet married her soulmate and love of her life, Glenn Raymond Davis, on June 8, 1974 at Our Lady of the Holy Souls Catholic Church in Little Rock. This would be the beginning of a loving, long-lasting marriage of 47 years. Their love and support for each other was something out of a fairytale and incredible to see. Janet and Glenn were blessed with two amazing children, Warren Davis and Katherine (Davis) Mentzer. Janet was a spectacular mother and she was always proud of her children. Family was everything to her. In fact, Janet’s proudest accomplishment in her life was her family. Her favorite title was Sissy, the nickname given to her at a young age by her father, and the name all six of her precious grandchildren called her. She loved her grandchildren, Thomas Mentzer, Hannah Mentzer, Charley Anne Mentzer, Pierce Davis, Berkley Davis, and Tanner Davis, so deeply and was always proud of all of them and there for them. She had an infinite love for her son-in-law, Drew Mentzer, and her daughter-in-law, Allison (West) Davis. She always said she couldn’t have handpicked better spouses for her children. Janet loved to say she was not afraid to leave this Earth, because she was leaving the world a better place through her family. 

 

Janet loved hard and was such an incredible and loyal friend to several people. She had so many great friendships, those who loved and cared for her always, especially as she fought cancer. She loved her best friend, Linda Lev, whom she met when they were both flight attendants. She and Linda were more like sisters and their bond and camaraderie was so special. Linda was always there for her. Everyone in life needs a Linda. 

 

Janet wanted to make the world a better place. She was very giving in her time and love with several local charities and organizations. In fact, her husband likes to joke that the only reason he was asked to be involved with several groups is because they knew they would also get Janet. She worked with the Little Rock chapter of Cystic Fibrosis, 20th Century, Parkinson’s Foundation, Hospice, Thea Foundation, Museum of Discovery, Pulaski Technical College and the Allen School, to name a few. She did it all to help people and for no glory for herself. She wanted to teach her children to always help people no matter what and that everyone has something to share with others. 

 

Janet is preceded in death by her mother and father, Patricia and Ross Glover. Janet is survived by her devoted husband, Glenn Davis, loving children, Warren Davis (Allison) and Katherine Mentzer (Drew), grandchildren Thomas Mentzer, Hannah Mentzer, Charley Anne Mentzer, Pierce Davis, Berkley Davis, and Tanner Davis, her older brother, Ross Glover, her younger sister, Stacy Glover, several nieces and nephews, and a multitude of friends. 

Janet wanted to thank the wonderful angels at CARTI who held her hands and heart in prayer through her cancer journey: Dr. Diane Wilder, Dr. Edgar St. Amour, Katie Dunn, RN, Tiffany Willis, and Julie Favorite. The love and care you gave Janet could not be learned in medical school; you were born with this compassion.
