Shirley Mae Davis, nee Derenzy, died on January 15, 2017. She was born in Rome, NY, January 23, 1925 and resided in Granite Falls, WA.

Beloved daughter of Edward Derenzy and Ethel (Derenzy) Martin, Shirley was a loving wife to Frederick L. Davis whom preceded her in death in 1983. She leaves behind a daughter, LaMoyne and Bill Ashlock; Bobby Clark, Archdale, NC husband of her deceased daughter, Susan Joan Clark; and Lisa Davis, Yakima, WA, former wife of her deceased son, Fredric (Rick) Davis. Shirley was a very proud grandmother to 8 grandchildren, 15 great-grandchildren and 5 great-great-grandchildren. She was also a proud aunt to many nieces and nephews.

She was an Air Force wife for most of her life, caring for her family while her husband was away on assignments. Shirley was a homemaker, waitress, cashier, baker, knitter (each of her grandchildren, most nieces and nephews owning an afghan made by her) crocheter, seamstress.

It is with great sadness that we will say goodbye to her at an interment in Rome Cemetery, Jervis Road, Rome, NY on July 14, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. May the angels have placed you into our Lords’ hands.
