Leilah Serenity Davis


The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. Psalm 34:18 

 A precious gift from God, Leilah Serenity Davis was born December 5, 2007 in Union County, NC and is a daughter of Ephraim Cey Davis and Monica Ann Wall. Our little angel shared two homes with her parents and siblings, 1203 Fayetteville Road in Rockingham and 205 Gumtree Street in Wadesboro. 


On Sunday, May 15, 2022, Leilah, age 14, passed away peacefully at Atrium Health Anson in Wadesboro to join the cheerleading squad in Heaven. 


Leilah was a student of Anson County Schools, having attended Morven Elementary School and currently a 7th grade student at Anson Middle School. Her involvement at Anson Middle included playing the drums in the band and being a cheerleader. 


Our princess had many interests, which includes, singing, dancing, tennis, being a therapist for her friends at school, but most of she is a Child of God.  


Leilah was a member of New Meltonville Missionary Baptist Church in Peachland, where she attended faithfully and was a member of the youth choir and a part of the praise dance team. 


She leaves to cherish 14 precious and wonderful years of memories; her parents, Ephraim Cey Davis (Channen) and Monica Ann Wall (James), her sisters and best friends, Essence A. Davis and Kyah N. Davis and her baby brother, who she adored, Chasen E. Davis; her loving grandparents, Bonita Davis and Gary Davis and Mary  and Charles Sturdivant; her aunts and uncles,  Latonya Buchanan (Perry), Felicia Brown (Rayshaun), Carla Owens (Damien), Veronica Smith (Quentin),  Ian Davis (Jackie) Jared Davis (Millena), Armand Davis and Thaddeus Sturdivant, all of whom were a special part of her life; a host of cousins, including a special cousin, Kamoree Little; her special friend, Jamaya Greene and  her family at Anson Middle School, the students and staff. 


Leilah’s family would like to express their heartfelt gratitude to the staff of Atrium Health Anson Hospital, Anson County Rescue Squad, Levine Children’s Hospital, Dr. George Thevaos and the staff of Novant Health Child and Adolescent Medicine and Dr. Edwin Ferren and the genetics team for everything that was done for her when she was in their care.
