Dorothy Francis Davis, age 93 of Delaware passed away early New Years morning, January 1, 2010 at The Arbors of Delaware.

Born on June 8, 1916 in Philadelphia, PA, she was one of ten children born to the late David and Beulah (Davies) Gilbert. Originally from the Mifflin area, she moved to Delaware in 2004 from the West coast. She enjoyed the skills of homemaking; sewing, cooking, and baking. At time humorous and very out going, she was always helpful. Very prim and proper, the word charming describes her other attributes.

Her survivors include her granddaughter who cared for her: ShayMarie Thompson of Delaware, other grandchildren: David Maxwell John III, Shannon Jones and Sean Gongwer, several great-grandchildren, sisters: Olive Jean Sholaya of Mansfield, Thelma Booker of Texas and step-daughter Marilyn Hebert of Wisconsin.

In addition to her parents she was preceded in death by husbands: Ivan Gongwer and John F. Davis, son Donald Gongwer, daughter Sondra Gongwer, and 3 bothers and 3 sisters.

Private graveside services will be held for her family at Oak Grove Cemetery. The DeVore-Snyder Funeral Home in Delaware is honored to serve the family of Dorothy Davis.
