Anne Davis passed to her rest on March 2, 2012 at age 96 in Kettle Falls.
She was born in Fox Valley, Saskatchewan, Canada on Sept. 12, 1915, the third of six children to recent German immigrant parents. The family moved to a number of farming communi¬ties, mostly in Alberta, during Anne's years of elementary and secondary schooling.
She chose a career in nursing, and made a major move in the early 1940's to Kentucky and Florida for her nurse’s training.
Anne married H. Lorain Davis in 1949. They settled in Walla Walla, where she worked as a nurse in Walla Walla General Hospital and gave moral and often physical energy in helping her husband establish a family business, College Place Heating. Anne and Lorain had three children. She was the bookkeeper in the family business and deeply involved in several Seventh Day Adventist churches in the Walla Walla area.
Lorain passed away in 1985. Until her passing, Anne spent part of her time in her Walla Walla home and more and more time in her Kettle Falls home to be with her daughter.
Anne will be most remembered as a wonderful wife and mother, a loyal friend to many, and a devout Seventh Day Ad¬ventist Christian with a deep and vivid expectation of Christ’s soon return. She was happiest when with her family, working in the garden, building and supporting new churches, and visiting the sick, elderly, and lonely. A prolific reader, she took up the hobby of memorizing Bible verses and spiritual quotations.
She is survived by her three children: Dennis and wife Brigitte Davis, Walla Walla; Carol Anne Davis, Sunnyside; and Janice and husband George Enquist, Kettle Falls; six grand¬sons, Isaiah Enquist, Michael Enquist, Joseph Enquist, Tye Davis , Lance Davis, Kraig Davis and two grand-daughters, Holly Clark and Lindy Davis.
She is also survived by a brother, Albert Will, College Place, and sisters Bertha Grabo of Strathmore, Alberta, and Esther Claridge of College Place.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Gustav and Su¬sanne Will; brother, John Will and sister, Margaret King, her husband, Lorain Davis, and by her grand-daughter, Laura En¬quist.
