Katelyn was the daughter of Kevin and Melissa Davis who live in Pasadena, Texas. She was the granddaughter of the late Al Frank Mays, a former Jasper car dealer.

Funeral services for Katelyn Davis will be held at 6:30 on Tuesday evening at the First Baptist Church in Pasadena. A graveside service will follow here in Jasper on Wednesday.
