Mrs. Davis was born in Erie, Pa. June 3, 1920, the daughter of the late James B. Yard and Alice B.A. Daniel Yard. She graduated from Strong Vincent High School in Erie, Pa., where she was a member of the Acapella Choir.
Mrs. Davis loved working with her friends and customers at Conkey's Groceries in Erie and later Durbin's and Stutzman's in Cuyahoga Falls and Hallmark Cards. She loved her church, St. Eugene's, her faith and her many friends there, as well as all who have passed through her life, especially her family.
