Alison Hinton Davis

Alison Hinton Davis, a resident of Brandon, passed away at her home on March 29th, 2024. She was 46 years old.
From the moment that she was born on February 16,1978, she exuded joy in every interaction, becoming a radiant presence to all who knew her. To her family, she was a beam of light and a source of boundless happiness. Growing up, those she met often echoed this sentiment. She attended Northwest Rankin High School and was a graduate of the class of 1996, during which she achieved numerous accomplishments. Those included, but were not limited to, her active participation in dance, cheerleading, and basketball teams. She was elected as class favorite and named to the homecoming court each year. Prior to her high school graduation, she was honored as Miss Rankin County.
An ardent bulldog fan, she attended Mississippi State University and graduated in the class of 2001 with a Bachelors of Liberal Arts in Educational Psychology. After graduating, she spent time as a dance choreographer and coach for the Northwest Rankin dance team. She further served on the Mississippi Association of Pageant Judges in her spare time. She even judged on the hit TV show “Bring It” on Lifetime TV. She then transitioned to what would be a thriving and rewarding career as an insurance agent for Aflac. She received the title of the top Aflac District Sales Coordinator on numerous occasions, and further achieved many accomplishments and certifications within the company. She was driven to provide her clients with service by the practice of the golden rule. She lived her life not only personally, but also professionally, to "do unto others as you would have others do unto you." For Alison, her clients and coworkers were a part of her extended family. In her time apart from work, she enjoyed participating as a member in both the Rankin County Chamber Board and the National Association of Professional Women.
While Alison's achievements are worthy of great celebration, she would boast that her greatest accomplishment will always be her immediate family. On August 21, 2003, she gave birth to what she considered her absolute pride and joy, Carson Anderson Odom. She felt complete when she met her great love, Todd Davis, and married him on November 23, 2018. Together, they were able to accomplish anything. To ask Alison about Carson or Todd was to see a sparkle in her eye. She knew and was loved deeply by them both. To know Alison is to know that friendship held immense significance, as she regarded her friends as an extension of her family. Never meeting a stranger, she was blessed with a multitude of friends who reciprocated her boundless love, and she treasured each connection dearly.
As we all reflect on our memories with Alison, it is likely that many of us remember an infectious laugh, her contagious smile, an incredible dance move on the dance floor (typically at the front), a Widespread Panic song, a ringing cowbell and most notably, an "I love you." We are assured that Alison celebrated her life diligently, prayerfully and with nothing but kind heartedness for those she knew, and for others whose path that she would cross.
Alison is survived by her husband, Todd Davis; son, Carson Odom; parents Jamie Dykes Harper and Cobern Dees Hinton (Dusty). She is further survived by her two sisters, Kristin Hinton Cox (Joseph) and Harlee Hinton Walley (Mitchell); a brother, Wilson C. Harper; grandmother, Patricia Dees Jones; and three nephews, Hinton, Elliot and Tate Cox. She was preceded in death by her grandfather, Samuel Cobern Hinton, Jr. and C. H. Dykes; grandmother, Mary Frances Dykes; and step-father, William “Billy” Harper.
A funeral service and celebration of the tremendous life that Alison had will be held at Pinelake Church Reservoir Campus on Saturday, April 6 at 11am. Visitation will be prior to the service beginning at 9am. A graveside service will follow at Lakeland Place Memorial Park. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the American Cancer Society.
The family would like to extend resounding gratitude to the caregivers of Traditions Health and Hospice Services, Harley and Keith Davis, the staff of Pinelake Church, and Dr. Christy Haygood whose dedication and kindness to Alison was unwavering throughout her battle with cancer.
“A butterfly constantly reminds us that there is always beauty at the end of all the pain.”
