After a long battle with cancer, she passed peacefully at Harbor Hospice in Beaumont, Texas. Nildena was born on February 27, 1946 in Soledad, California to parents John Lewis and Dorothy Marie Ward Smith. She had two brothers Glen and Billy. She loved the natural beauty of Alaska where she earned her airplane and helicopter pilot licenses. On March 22, 1991 she married George Davis. She loved nature, especially butterflies, hummingbirds and the plants that thrived under her care. Her favorites were Bougainvillea, Desert Rose, Plumeria, Gerber Daisies and her specialty species of Aloe Vera. Her favorite "sport" was shopping and she could find some of the best bargains.
