DeLoise Davis

January 10, 1926 — February 2, 2013

DeLoise Davis, 87, passed away peacefully on Saturday (Feb. 2, 2013) at Asbury Park in Newton.
DeLoise was born on January 10, 1926 in Bucklin, Ks., to William and Edith (Scarbrough) Ward. She was graduated at Great Bend High School. In 1950, she married Victor “Vic” Davis of Newton, where they settled to raise a family.

After many years as a florist, DeLoise became the bookkeeper at Wenger Oil Company in Newton, where she retired as Office Manager in 1988.

Among the many things that DeLoise enjoyed was music. Her husband, Vic, was a jazz musician. DeLoise and Vic were regulars at the local Elks Lodge and V.F.W. on weekends, when Vic performed with his combo. DeLoise had also been a longtime member of the First United Methodist Church.

What DeLoise loved the most all her life was spending time with and entertaining her family and friends. She also enjoyed, in no particular order: yellow roses, strawberry milkshakes, the Colorado mountains, Dixieland Jazz, skip-bo games with her granddaughters, fettucinne alfredo, the New York Yankees, the California coast, poker games with her girlfriends, Tony Bennett’s singing, and a love of travel that was a gift she shared with her family as often as she could.

DeLoise’s warm, loving nature and wry sense of humor will be missed by all who knew her.

Survivors include two daughters, Phyllis Martinez of North Newton and Victoria Davis of Berkley, Calif.; one son, Scott Davis of Corvallis, Oreg.; eight grandchildren; four great grandchildren; and five great-great grandchildren.

She is preceded in death by her father William Ward; mother Edith Baeumel; husband Victor; daughter Lisa Pruyn; brother John Ward; and granddaughter Suzanna Presley.
