Born in 1944, Tommie Hill Davis moved from Marietta to Smyrna, Georgia, as a child. She was among the first students to attend the Rose Garden Hill School there before returning to Marietta with her family and settling in Robinson Court in the Fort Hill Homes housing project. Davis attended Lemon Street Elementary School and Lemon Street High School. As an adult, she owned a house-cleaning business, worked in the lunchroom at Lemon Street Elementary, taught in the Head Start program at Wright Street School, and worked in the health clinic at West Side Elementary. Today, Davis is active in reunions of the class of 1963.
