Davis, Doris Beatrice

July 26, 1929 — Thursday, May 21, 2020

It is with the heaviest of hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved matriarch, Doris Beatrice Davis (nee Thaell). She passed away peacefully in the Innisfail Health Care Center on Thursday, May 21, 2020, at the age of 90 years, with her children at her side.

Doris was born July 26, 1929, in Fort Macleod, the youngest of Fred and Beatrice Thaell’s three children. She married her high school sweetheart, Jack Davis, on Nov. 9, 1948. They soon after began building their family, which now includes dozens of members across three generations, living throughout Canada. Each one is unique and individual, but all of them love Doris, and she was fiercely proud of every one.

Doris was pre-deceased by her husband Jack Davis, brother Ted Thaell and sister, Muriel Day.

Although she is sadly missed, her legacy is celebrated by the large and loving family she grew:

Her five children — Barb Davis (Ron) of Innisfail, Jackie Davis (Doug) of Water Valley, Cam Davis (Judy) of Calgary, Sharon Davis (Kerry) of Innisfail and Tracy Davis-McMillan (Don) of Innisfail; her 12 grandchildren — Bobbi (Jeff), Jeff (Sarah), Stacey (Stephen), Lisa (Pablo), Josh (Kristen), Matt (Sarah), Rockland (Kristie), Lindsay, Bailey, Allison, Brandon and Khoal (Alyssa); and her 14 great grandchildren — Jackson, Spencer, Claire, Tyson, Liam, Mia, Anela, Koa, Ralph, Louis, Bowen, Theo, Nate and Brynlie.

We would like to thank the people in our community who made an effort to make Mom feel special, including Shelley (her hair stylist), Tracy (her housekeeper), Georgia (Home Hardware) and Carissa (Cuddly Cuts). Finally, we wish a very special thank you to the acute care unit of the Innisfail Health Care Center for the compassionate care you gave Doris during such a difficult time without her family able to enter the hospital.

A memorial will be held at a later date where Doris and Jack will be in their final resting place . . . together again in Fort Macleod.
