     Eunice Diahann Davis Starkes


Wherefore, it has pleased the Almighty God to take from our midst His beloved servant, to a land where there is peace, love, and joy!

Eunice Diahann Davis Starkes, was born in Dallas, Texas to the parentage of Roy and Addie Ree Davis on February 4, 1947. At the age of 9 months, her mother passed away and she was affectionately raised by her grandmother Annie Laura Ford. She attended public schools in Dallas.

Diahann accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior at a very early age in the Church of the Living God. She was most recently a member of God Is Ministries where Apostle Jeanette “Tweedy” Thomas was her pastor and dear friend.

Diahann married her high school sweetheart, Charles Starkes on November 14, 1964, and to this union one son, Darius Charles was born. She also had three step sons, Reginald Simmons, Rossi Walter, and Nysahn Williams. Even though she had only one natural son, God blessed her with so many sons and daughters that she helped raise and educate in her children’s day care for over twenty years. She later became the principal of Metro Elementary -Honors Academy Charter School in Dallas until she retired. She also worked at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas.

Preceding her in death were her father and mother, Roy and Addie Ree Davis, grandparents Annie L. Ford, Arthur Ford, and Henry Willard, sisters, Annie Ruth Davis-Demus and Gail Davis-Ollie, and great-nephew Coryion Robertson.

Left to cherish her memories are: husband Charles; son Darius; grandchildren: D’ara Starkes, Jaron (Kitara) Starkes, and Nicholas Henderson; great niece Shantel (Will) Harris; great nephew Michael (Kim) Jackson; great grandchildren: Aalam and Makaila; her “babies:” Cer, Cortnee and Michael Jr.; four God daughters: Camille, Elna, Helen, and Katrice; three God sons: Kwame, Orlando and Peter (Neikeya); and a host of cousins, relatives, and friends.

Diahann lived her life as a testimony to her love for Christ and to her family.
