When longtime member Ada Davis died in 2019, the Chastain Park Garden Club in Buckhead paid tribute to her at a monthly meeting and honored her with a plaque at the weather shelter. The club maintains flower boxes at this site at the north end of the horse park’s parking lot. “Ada held most officer roles in the club, and was a gracious neighbor; she was interested in everyone and loved to create beauty that the neighborhood could enjoy,” said Bess Scholl, the club’s president. Davis, a club member for more than 50 years, served in a variety of roles with the organization over the years. She was a “doer,” and initiated community planting at Powers Ferry Road and Stella Drive. Davis used her own garden’s plants for the public strip along Powers Ferry, and she hosted many holiday parties and participated in numerous community service projects.
