Lillian (Lil) Viola Davis (Nee Oesch)




With heavy hearts, we sent an

amazing and dedicated wife; mom, grandma, special aunt and friend home with the Lord on December 21, 2012. Born on December 28, 1931

in Nobury, SK to Irvin and Zena Oesch, Lil was the middle of three children. She was an independent girl and started working at age 16 as

a switchboard operator. Lil married

the love of her life, Ray Davis on

November 6, 1953. They moved from DeWinton, AB to Calgary, AB where they raised their son Lyle and daughter Donna. Lil stayed home to be with her children before

returning to work at Woodwards as a ladies fashion sales consultant; then Marshall drugs, and finally as a beauty

consultant at Eaton’s. Lil and Ray, along with Lyle and

Donna, enjoyed camping and family gatherings, and

Sunday dinners. Lil and Ray loved to dance and socialize with family and friends. Lil always took care to look her very best whether she was staying home or going out. When she did go out, she never left without a beautiful scarf around her neck. Her family came first and foremost and she

protected them always. Sadly predeceased by her loving mom and dad, her adoring husband, Ray, her cherished

son Lyle and brother Dave. Left behind to miss her and

remember her with love and fondness; her daughter Donna, grandson Warren, Debbie and Ron, “her girl” Sarah, and many special friends, many nieces and nephews, her sister Bertha, sister-in-law Annette.
