Sidney Ann Davis


Ms. Sidney Ann Davis, 81, of Salisbury, Md., passed away Saturday, Aug. 15, 2020, at Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury. A native of Northside Chesconessex, she was born Sept. 16, 1938, a daughter of the late Sidney Matthew Pruitt and the late Ona Dise Pruitt.

Following high school, Sidney completed the LPN nursing program and began her career with Peninsula General Hospital in Salisbury (now Peninsula Regional Medical Center), retiring in 2008. Raised in a family of commercial watermen, she spent much of childhood on the Chesapeake Bay, which inspired her lifelong passion for boating and fishing. Her greatest love and best friend was her furbaby, Brandy, who was faithfully by her side over the last 16 years.

Sidney is survived by her sister, Violet Mears, of Parksley; brother, Brooks Pruitt, and his wife, Sharon, of Northside Chesconessex; and several nieces and nephews. In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her sisters, Eva Parks, Sue Brown, Norma Fletcher, and Nancy Horner, as well as her infant sister, Sylvia Pruitt.

To honor Sidney’s wishes, no public service will be held.
