Mother of Ernie Davis Passes Away

Marie Fleming 1939-2008.

Sad news out of my hometown area as Marie Fleming, the mother of Ernie Davis, passed away on Tuesday. Fleming, still a pretty big fixture in Elmira, New York was a prominent member of the community. She was very active in doing volunteer work, as well as making sure that Ernie Davis was remembered not just as a great football player but a good person as well. While I personally had never met Ms. Fleming, I had seen her a few times and she spoke with a dignity and an elegance that could be matched by few. She was passionate about her community and lived a life that no would could say was anything but good. She will be missed. The local paper, the Elmira Star-Gazette, has this article that appears today. May she rest in peace.

    May the mother of the late great Ernie Davis rest in peace. Perhaps somewhere in heaven they will meet and greet one another again.
