Our mom, Marilyn Emily "Penny" Davis, passed away peacefully on Saturday, September 12, 2020 at the age of 94. She was little bitty, never exceeding 5' 2" & shrinking down in the 4'10" range. But she had a BIG heart for family. A loving mother, she was totally dedicated to our dad, whom she was married to from 1947 to 2005. She was a HUGE Cleveland Indians fan her entire life! She saved dad's life for an additional 5 years INSISTING he go to a doctor when he was experiencing back shoulder pain, a precursor of blocked arteries and heading off a sure heart attack saved by quintuple bypass surgery.
She was mentally sharp and scarily organized her entire life. In her later years, a combination of old Western movies, Indians games and her "help her stand up" lazy boy and her beautiful home with rich memories of dad occupied her time. She was a very talented cartoon artist as a hobby. She LOVED horses; having grown up on a working farm, she had her own horse named Major.
Penny is survived by her two sons and daughter-in-law, Randy Davis and Robert and Lisa Davis; six grandchildren; and five great grandchildren.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, James C. Davis who passed away on September 13, 2005; daughter, Constance Morgan; grandson, Taylor Davis; daughter-in-law, Diane Davis; and siblings, Marge Zika and Bill Winkler.
A graveside service will be held on Monday, September 21, 2020 at Greenlawn Cemetery in Plymouth, Ohio at 11:00 a.m. Memorial contributions can be made to the Plymouth Lions Club. Online condolences can be left for the family at www.secorfuneralhomes.com.
