According to People, the actress, who was 88, lived in Pennsylvania in a home she shared with an Episcopal bishop and his wife. She dedicated her post-acting life to studying the Bible and praying, and explained that she was much more content with her life this way than when she was acting. She stated “I am where the Lord wants me to be.”
Davis was born on May 3, 1926 in Schenectady, New York . She lived a financially comfortable life on her acting pension and never married.
