Marva Yazid Obituary

Marva Lynette Yazid Scott (aka Renee) was a woman fearfully and wonderfully made by the Most High God. Marva was born on October 9, 1964, to Bobby Joe Davis and Alice Love, but was raised by her paternal grandmother, Willa Mae Anderson. When Marva was 8 years old, Bobby Joe married her stepmother, Sylvia O. Davis (nee Moore), with whom she maintained a close mother/daughter relationship until her homegoing.

Marva was preceded in death by her grandmother, Ms. Willa Mae Anderson; loving father, Bobby Joe Davis; and two daughters, Mya Ford & Antoinette King.

Marva’s smile was infectious and could brighten your day! She was one of a kind who lived her life out loud and in her own way.

Marva enjoyed church, children, cooking, coloring, and crime shows. She was a “foodie,” who delighted in good food & was blessed to have her own personal chef, in the form of her husband. She cherished her china and crystal collection and nurtured her house plants with tender loving care. She loved the color purple!

Marva was educated in the St. Louis, MO, and Chicago, IL school systems. 

Marva greatly loved God, her family, and her extended family.

Marva was blessed to find true love more than once. Marva and the love of her life, her husband of ten years, Willie, were inseparable. Marva enjoyed fishing, fellowshipping, worshipping, and breaking bread with her husband.

Marva was a “Mama Bear!” She adored her sons, Lorenzo and Herbert, III, and her daughter, Markisha “KiKi”. She loved them fiercely! She was caring, protective, and proud. She laughed and joked with them, but if they stepped out of line, she did not play! Marva prayed for her children and carried them inher heart daily.

Marva possessed a passion for serving God’s people. Marva was a member of the Pentacostal Cathedral Church Of God In Christ. She loved her church, her pastor and first lady, Bishop Donald Alford & Mother Alford, and her church family. Marva served as a church greeter and also with the hospitality ministry.
