Nancy R. Davis, 78, went to be with the Lord on Aug. 4, 2019. She was born in Ellsworth on Sept. 26, 1940.
Nancy was a devoted Baptist who loved her church family. She worked with the children through vacation Bible school and Awana for many years. Her mission while she was here on Earth was to encourage all her family and friends to know and love the Lord like she did. Her heart was so big, she loved and cared for so many. She enjoyed crafting and knitting, creating gifts for loved ones. She was always a hard worker, waitressing for 20 years. Throughout her life, she always made sure her family was well taken care of. Groceries, school clothes, babysitting grandchildren, she was always happy to help. She spent many years taking care of her parents in their end years as well.
We are all so grateful, as was she, for the beautiful friendships that developed at Leonard Lake Senior Housing, where she lived for the last years of her life.
She was predeceased by her parents, Wendell and Rosemary Reed, her brother Galen Reed, her son-in-law William Munson and two special nephews, Wilfred Watson and Gary Ripley.
She is survived by her seven children; Wendell Reed and wife, Belinda, of Southwest Harbor, Lorraine Munson of California, Linda Davis of Bangor, Raymond Davis Jr. and wife, Yvonne, of Ellsworth, Ann Tardiff and husband, Joseph, of Levant, Mary Stubbs and husband, Eddie, of Jonesboro, Christy Beal and husband, Rich, of Columbia. Also, 12 grandchildren and many great-grandchildren who were all the love of her life.
The memorial service will be held at Maine Coast Baptist Church in Ellsworth at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 10. Refreshments will be served after. All are welcome to attend.
