Alice Ophelia Davis was born on November 30, 1946 to the late Ida Elizabeth Morsell Wills and Syrelius Wills, Sr. She was the ninth of eleven siblings.

Alice was educated in the Calvert County Public Schools and graduated from W.S. Brooks High School. After high school, she attended Prince George’s Community College. Alice then became a dedicated Federal Government professional for 39 years. Her extensive career lead her to a variety of positions with several agencies with her longest and most fulfilling being at the Environmental Protection Agency. There she served as a Procurement Specialist until her retirement.

Alice was married to the late James Davis, Sr. and out of this union was born a daughter, Melissa Turner and a son, Alexis Davis.
