Elizabeth A Davis

December 17, 1939 - April 17, 2017

Elizabeth A. Davis, resident of Carolina Bay at Autumn Hall, Wilmington, N.C., passed away April 17, 2017.

Born in 1939 in Scranton, Pa., Liz spent much of her adult life in Saratoga County, N.Y., where she raised three children with husband, Joe, and had a successful career as a realtor. She and Joe made North Carolina home in 2003, living a wonderful life in both St. James Plantation and then Carolina Bay. Elizabeth loved being with her children and grandchildren, being in or near the water, a good game of golf or bridge and socializing with friends. Her most beautiful smile could light up any room.

She is survived by her loving husband of 58 years, Joseph F. Davis; their son, Jeffrey Davis (wife, Bridget), of Wenham, Mass.; their daughter, Lisa Boland, (husband, Kenneth), of Southbury, Conn. and their daughter, Sara Gallagher (husband, Michael), of Sinking Springs, Pa.; grandchildren, Kyle, Daniel, Molly, Madison, Nicole, Claire, Andrew and Jeffrey; along with their newborn great-granddaughter, Charlee, brought her great joy.

She was predeceased by her father, William Ellicott Sr.; her mother, Mary Price Ellicott; adored brothers, Thomas and William Ellicott; and her precious granddaughter, Morgan Elizabeth Gallagher.

In keeping with our beloved Liz’s wishes to celebrate her life rather than mourn her passing, there will be no public memorial service. A private burial will be held by family members. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the American Cancer Society or the March of Dimes.
