      Suilon – thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers. Yes, Mom was quite a special person and special nurse – she literally helped birth a generation of children. She loved being a nurse and talked often of sharing a room with you during one of her hospitalizations! We were all blessed to have known her. I know she is looking down on us and interceding for us to God! Just have to remain faithful so that we can all be together once again in heaven!! Anne

  8. Emily Allen Neher January 16, 2017 at 6:08 pm

    Dear John, George, Anne, Bill and Terri,
    How saddened I am to hear of the passing of your dear mother. How often I have thought about those long ago childhood years living across from one another in National Homes. Going together to St. Mary’s Catholic school, exploring the wondorous and fascinating engineering experiments your father was always working on, and playing at the little park. And always your mother was a neighborhood presence often with treats, always with kindnesses. I will forever be grateful to her for helping to save my life in fifth grade by explaining to my parents that the severe abdominal pains I was experiencing was likely due to appendicitis. Thank you Mrs. Davey. May you rest in peace.
    Hail Mary full of grace the Lord is with thee, blessed art thou amongst women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God , pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen
    Eternal rest grant unto her O Lord, and may Perpetual Light shine upon her.
    May her soul and souls of all the faithful departed find Light happiness and peace.

    • Anne February 9, 2017 at 2:55 pm

      Emily – what wonderful memories! Those were mine too. I had forgotten about your scare with appendicitis until you talked about it at the funeral home. That would be like Mom to save the day!! We will miss her greatly but know that she has no worries or pain or disappointments any more. God is good. Until we meet again, Momma! Anne

    Anne your mom smiles down on you every minute from Heaven. She is enjoying her reward. Wow. She was a great gal. I loved working with her. She taught you well.

    • Anne February 9, 2017 at 3:00 pm

      Pam – thank you for your kind words. Yeah, you would have worked with Mom several years. She did love nursing and was proud that I followed in her footsteps – she made them easy to follow, too!! Sure will miss being able to confide in her about “nursing” and other life issues but am very comforted and happy that she never has to feel the pain or disappointments. She is in heaven and interceding for us to God!! Talk about having the power of prayer! Anne

  10. Don Debbie Baker January 17, 2017 at 10:46 am

    Dear Anne and family, we are very sorry to hear of your mothers passing. Praying for strength and comfort for the difficult days ahead.

    • Anne February 9, 2017 at 3:01 pm

      Don – thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers! Mom was special and has received to greatest reward! Anne

  11. Pat Sears Minie January 17, 2017 at 6:28 pm

    Patty was special to so many. In photos I received of her over the years, she was always smiling. I often thought her lovely smile was a reflection of the beautiful soul within. I am so sad to hear of her death. It is my sincere prayer that God will hold you all close through this time of sorrow. To her brother, sister, children and grandchildren, I reach out in sympathy and love. As she herself often ended messages and letters, “God bless you.”

    • Anne February 9, 2017 at 3:47 pm

      Pat – you are a special cousin. So glad that we got to know you, too. Mom was definitely smiling in most all of her pictures. I am comforted in the fact that she has no worries or pain or disappointments any more and that she is looking out for us by interceding for us to God. God Bless! Anne

  12. Sue Edmiston January 18, 2017 at 8:57 am

    Dear Ann, Tere and Family,
    Your Mom was truly one in a million! Her kindness and compassion while caring for me nearly 40 years ago during our loss will never be forgotten! I am so sorry that we aren’t able to be there to offer our comfort to you in return. Rest assured she is smiling down on all of you and enjoying her Eternal Reward in Heaven!! God’s blessings be with you all!!

    • Anne February 9, 2017 at 3:49 pm

      Sue – thank you so much for your kind words and wonderful memory of my Mom. She was truly special and taught us all well. She was definitely my inspiration when deciding to become a nurse and enjoyed being able to share confidences with her ’cause she knew how things in health care were! Yes, she is definitely smiling down and I take comfort in that! Anne

    So sorry to learn of Pat’s death. She was the nurse in the delivery room and had taken care of me during labor when my daughter was born in 1969 at CCH. Pat was a great nurse and a very caring lady. You all have my prayers and sympathy at this time.

    • Anne February 9, 2017 at 4:53 pm

      Carolyn – thank you for the kind words about Mom – being part of the child’s birth was one of her favorite parts of nursing. I was lucky to have worked with her, too – I learned about really caring for others. She saw a generation of children being born – what an honor and pleasure. She is in good hands now and one day we will get to meet again!! Anne

  16. Stephanie Teter January 20, 2017 at 8:16 am

    • Anne February 9, 2017 at 4:56 pm

      Stevie – you are right about being best neighbors – Mom sure missed your mother, too. We had the best parents! What great memories come flooding back of my childhood on Crescent Drive.
