Evelyn Davis (Hill), 87, of Napanee, passed away peacefully on September 17, 2020. She was born to the late Walter and Marjorie Hill, October 7, 1932, in Merlin, Ontario.
She married the late Ron Davis in 1961 and they lived in Toronto, Montreal, Tecumseh, Belmont and St. Pauls before Evelyn relocated to Napanee in 2015 to be closer to her children. Evelyn is survived by four children: Wayne Davis (Carmen), of Foster, QC; Eric Davis (Jane) of Napanee, ON, Mark Davis (Shari), Napanee, ON; and Diane Schoening (Danny), of Allen, TX and her sister Elaine (Jim) of Richmond Hill ON. She will be sadly missed by her eight grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. Evelyn was predeceased by her loving husband in 2004 and her brother Jack.
Evelyn was a devoted wife and mother, she had been an active member in the St. Pauls Women’s Institute, and member of the Stratford Red Hats Ladies. She was very proud of being a past member of these groups and always liked to share her memories of the great friends that she had made during her many years attending those organizations. She always had time to chat and share a smile with her many friends including the staff at Daco and her “Merlin girls” who were friends from her childhood. Evelyn was proud of her family and leaves behind nothing but beautiful memories.
In recent months her health declined, and we are forever grateful to her friends and staff at the John M. Parrott Center who cared for and kept her safe throughout these challenging times. Rest in Peace.
