Her obituary from the Winnipeg Free Press, August 23, 2012:

FLORENCE LILA MARIE (LOWRY) DAVIS Peacefully and pain free in her sleep at Seven Oaks Hospital, Mom was called home to be with her beloved husband Bill (William Henry Davis) on Saturday, August 18, 2012. In their 70 years of marriage they were apart for only the last 11 weeks. She is survived by her children Lila (Al) Larson; Bill (Judy) Davis; Don (Nancy) Davis; Sylvia (Greg) Russell; Grandchildren: John Larson; Kelley (Errol) Sookram; Kara (Mark) Haakenson; Kristian (Teresa) Davis; Andrew (Kerry) Davis; Katherine Speirs ( Ryan Giffen); Rachel Ann Russell; James Russell. She is also survived by her great-grandchildren: Riley Anderson; Benton and Skylar Sookram; Logan and Katelyn Haakenson; Kristian and Maria Davis; Faith Davis. Mom’s heart was wrenched by the death of her younger brother Ross Lowry in September 1964 and she was grateful that her brother Loyde (Flora) Lowry and sister Isabel (Doug) Rombough lived close enough to enjoy times with and share laughter, memories and fun. She was predeceased by her mother Alda Lila Lowry; father Hamilton Alexander Lowry; Brother Howard Lowry; Brother Ross Lowry; and Sister Isabel Rombough. She also leaves to mourn her sisters-in-law Bertha Leeder and family; Alice Collingwood and family. Nieces and nephews who also mourn her passing are: Beth (Barry) Sundell and family; Linda Lowry; Ruth Vines (Al) ; Ken(Chris) Rombough and family; Louise (Richard) MacGillivray and family; Beth (Brian) Bigelow and family; Ned Leeder and family; Darren (Shannon) Brautigan and family; Tammy (Tim) Mata and family; Johnny (Linda) Leeder and family; Janice(Brian) Glays and family; Grace (Harry) Hunter. Mom’s friends and family will miss her spirited will and sense of peace that she imbued whenever they were in her presence. Mom was born May 8, 1917 in Morden, Manitoba to Alda Lila (Storey) Lowry and Hamilton Alexander Lowry. She loved her years growing up in Darlingford, MB and going to her Grandmother Storey’s for lunch daily and learning from her in so many ways. As a woman of quiet dignity she lived her life in that manner. She entered nursing training in 1939 she was passionate about her profession and dedicated her life to applying her gifted knowledge and skills as she raised her family of four, nursed her parents, and other family members over the years. She married Bill on July 27, 1942. As a minister’s wife she encountered many experiences which were new to her and yet she dedicated her time and efforts to raising her family. Mom celebrated the birth of Lila in 1943 and Bill in 1944. Many moves occurred over the years from Winnipeg to Brandon, to St Joseph, Missouri, to Sarnia, Ontario and back to Winnipeg where Dad retired in 1982. Mom and Dad spent the past 30 years in retirement and enjoyed their beloved cottage firstly at Victoria Beach and lastly at Wanasing Beach. Mom had an intercom to check on Dad as he puttered in his workshop and to let him know when meals were ready. She drank in the beauty of the lake sitting in her chair as she crocheted, knitted and mended. She recalled with great joy the times at Victoria Beach Community Church when Dad and Lila sang together for the summer services. Her daughter-in-law Judy Davis sang at services in St. Michael’s Church in later years. Their heart’s desire was to have their children and grandchildren enjoy the cottage they worked so diligently to buy and maintain. Since Dad’s death June 1, 2012, Mom found no lasting pleasure in her earthly domain and was willing to be promoted to Heaven to be with Dad which was the desire of his heart. The service was a private one at Thomson’s on Wednesday, August 22 at 1:00 p.m. with interment at Chapel Lawn Cemetery in keeping with Mom being a private person. Many thanks to the Drs and staff at Seven Oaks Hospital for their compassionate care and loving support; to Rose, the Facility Manager who made Mom’s final hours private and able to be with her family; to the Winnipeg Fire and Paramedic Service for their speedy escort to Seven Oaks and to the Home Care staff at Luther Home who made it possible for her to remain at home as long as possible.
