Sarah J. Davis, 91, of Union Dale, passed away on Monday, April 20th at the Wayne Memorial Hospital, Honesdale of respiratory failure caused by pneumonia. She is survived by her husband of 73 years, Donald D. Davis.
Born in 1929 in Herrick Center, she was the daughter of the late Howard and Sadie Emmons Howell. Before retirement, she was employed as an edge stitcher for the Endicott-Johnson Shoe Company in Forest City. Her interests were antiques and yard sales. Also, for many years, Sarah and Donald drove to New York state along with their pop-up camper to attend country music jamborees. No two people loved each other and each other’s company more than they did. She will be sorely missed.
Also surviving are her daughters: Helen Rice, Colorado Springs, CO; Melany Franks and husband Dave, Union Dale; her son: Donnie, at home; 14 grandchildren; 28 great grandchildren; 4 great great grandchildren; a brother: Freeman Howell, Union Dale; a brother-in-law: Hobart Davis and wife Ester, Fort Pierce, FL; and several cousins, nephews, and nieces.
She was also preceded in death by a son: Howard B. Davis; and a sister: Viola Griffin.
Due to the current health crisis, services will be private with interment in Meyers Cemetery, Union Dale. Arrangements by the Jones & Brennan Funeral Home, 430 Main Street, Forest City.
