Lodessa Pinkerton Davis was called to her eternal home with the Lord on December 29, 2022 at Baptist Health Medical Center in North Little Rock while surrounded by loved ones. She will be remembered by her two sons, Gary and Greg Davis; five grandchildren; and a host of great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and friends.
In addition to her parents, Fletcher and Ella Parr Pinkerton, she was preceded in death by her husband, Jimmy Davis; three sisters, Ozzie Pinkerton, Louise Bardin, and Jewel Humble; three brothers, J.P. Floyd, Clyde Pinkerton and Byzzie Parr. Lodessa was an active long-time member of Amboy Baptist Church where she served on various committees through the years. When her health allowed, she loved camping, shopping and gardening. She enjoyed growing her own vegetables and flowers of all types. Lodessa enjoyed reading, jigsaw and crossword puzzles as well as many games of Phase 10, Farkle, or Uno with family members. She was extremely loyal to her family and was always there to assist in any way she could. She loved to laugh and was a positive light to everyone she met. She had a gift for making others feel welcome and loved. She was loved by everyone and although her time on this earth has come to an end, she will remain in our hearts forever. We will say goodbye for now and look forward to being reunited in heaven.
Visitation will be held on Tuesday, January 3, 2023 from 2:00 to 3:00 P.M. with the funeral service immediately following at 3:00 P.M. at Westbrook Funeral Home Chapel in Hazen, Arkansas.

A lady I admired as a kid, went to school, church, loved her whole family on both sides. Randy Vincent.
So many memories. We loved spending family time with Dessa and Jimmy and Gary and Greg. Camping., playing cards and laughing until we hurt. You will be missed.
So many of my childhood memories involved Aunt Dessa! I will hold her fondly in my heart and so many of those memories that are dear to me!
So so sorry 😢 she will be missed love her so much.
I loved Aunt Dessa so much. Kind, generous, smart, funny, beautiful… Growing up, I loved visiting Dessa and Jimmy. I would just sit back and watch the Dessa and Jimmy show. Their banter was unmatched. I take comfort knowing they’re together in Heaven.
I loved talking with her around the kitchen table. She’d tell stories of her childhood, or when she was a newlywed, or just family memories she wanted to share, sometimes while we ate blackberry cobbler (my favorite) that she made for me. She baked fruit cake cookies and took delight in the fact my girls didn’t want to share them with anyone, not even their husbands! So many memories, I could go on and on. Even though I knew one day she would leave us, it’s hard to believe she’s gone. She was a profound influence not only in my life, but my girls’ lives as well. We will miss her wisdom, her stories, her hugs and her laugh. Sending love to Gary and Greg, family and friends.
Nini meant so much to me. She was a mother to me when I needed it the most. She had such a big heart and so much love to give. The most important in my life was how she influenced me to accept Jesus Christ as my savior. I was confused when I met her and she relentlessly witnessed to me even when I didn’t want to hear it. What better gift could she have given me. So thankful I will see her again in eternity.
So many fond memories of my Aunt Dessa, I loved her so much! She and I would relentlessly tease one another until we were in fits of giggles. I will miss seeing her at family gatherings and playing games with her. She was truly one-of-a-kind; such a beautiful soul.
