Alice Davis Paul, 91, of Athens passed away on September 4, 2020. Born on December 20, 1928, she was the daughter of the late Leroy Davis and Martha Fincher Davis. Alice was known to her family as being a Bible scholar and was a long time member of Prince Avenue Baptist Church.

Alice cherished her family, caring for each member personally and prayed for by name daily.
