Although she is absent from the body, Ella May "Ellie" Davis, 83, is now present with the Lord. Her homecoming happened Tuesday, October 18, 2016, where she passed away peacefully at her residence, surrounded by her family and loved ones.
She was born and raised in Greenville, Pennsylvania. She spent 35 years in Arizona, and the past 10 years in Texas where she has been living near her youngest son and his family.
Ellie devoted her life to being a loving wife, fantastic mother of 6 children, grandma, great grandma, daughter, and friend.
She was known to many as "Miss Ellie" in her Sunday School class at Evangelistic Temple and at the Senior Center where she enjoyed attending. Her radiant smile came from a deeper joy inside that others were drawn to. She was an avid reader and loved her trips to Tyler with husband, George.
Ellie is survived by her husband, George Davis; daughter, Holly Hawkins and husband Scott; sons, Brian Chason and wife Lisa; Randy Chason and wife Renee, Rick Chason, Larry Davis, and Gary Davis; 16 grandchildren, one who lives locally - Chad Chason and wife Holly; and 13 great-grandchildren, two who live locally and brought her great joy - Lizzie and Ashlyn Chason.
