Davis was born in Schenectady, New York, the daughter of Marguerite (née Stott) and Cassius Miles Davis.[1] She had an identical twin, Harriet, and an older brother, Evans.[3][4]

When Davis was three, she and her family moved to Erie in northwestern Pennsylvania.[2] She graduated from Strong Vincent High School and later from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.[5] She originally enrolled as a pre-medical major; however, she changed her mind and went into drama after seeing her older brother's performance of Oklahoma![2] Davis graduated in 1948 with a degree in drama and speech.
