Delores "Dee" Davis

Delores "Dee" Davis, 63, of Castalia and formerly of Milan, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, August 26, 2022.

Dee was born to the late Frances (Case) Irvine and Elmer Newsome on October 5, 1958, in Columbus, Ohio.

She attended Edison High School and met and married the love of her life Carl Davis. Dee worked for Douthit Communications for 34 years and attended church at The Chapel in Port Clinton. Dee enjoyed gardening, reading, Harley rides with Carl, the beach, dancing and her most prized possession, her family.

Dee was larger than life and would give anything for those she loved. She cherished making special memories with her family and grandkids. She was the queen of planning birthday parties, anniversary and beach trips, epic Christmas celebrations, bonfires, sleepovers, and fashion shows for the grandkids. She also enjoyed time at the racetrack and being outdoors and was always buying small things "just because". She made everyone she came in contact with feel special and loved.

She is survived by her loving husband of 47 years Carl Davis, her children Jake (Chris) Davis of Lisbon, John (Melissa) Davis of Grafton, Christina (Joe) Schelb of Indian Land, SC, her 12 grandkids Katlyn (Josiah) Norman, Max (Jenna) Davis, Hannah and Lyvia Davis, Gage and Baylee Smith, Evan and Marin Davis, Sienna and Aria Schelb, her sister Glema (Phil) King of Sandusky, brothers Jonah (Ruby) Newsome of Phelan CA, Daniel Newsome of Sandusky OH, and Allen Newsome of Ironton OH, her mother-in-law Tina Davis of Castalia, as well as many brother-in-laws, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

She was preceded in death by her beloved mother, Frances (Case) Irvine, sister, Erlena Medina, infant sister Inez, grandparents L.B. and Cynthia (Hunter) Case, and father-in-law Carl Davis Sr.

Friends and family are invited to a celebration of her life on Tuesday, August 30, 2022, from 1:00 P.M. until time of service at 2:00 P.M. at the Evans Funeral Home, 314 E Main Street, Norwalk. Burial will follow at Collins Cemetery.
