Obituary for Kathryn E. Davis

Kathryn (Kate) E. Davis age 95, passed away Friday December 25, 2020 at Proctor Place, in Peoria, IL.

Kate was born October 1, 1925 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to Ethel M. and George H. Baker. Kate attended St. Bernard's grade school and graduated from the Academy of our Lady in 1943. She married John R. Davis on June 21, 1947, at St. Bernard's Church in Peoria, IL. John passed away October 27, 1987 at the age of 64. She was preceded in death by her parents, her sister and brother in law Mary Ann and Edward Dwyer, son-in-law Frank Kemnetz, grandson-in-law, Tim Duffey and great grandson Jack Duffey.

Kate was a long time member of St. Philomena Church and later St. Vincent de Paul Church.

Surviving are her children, Mary Kay (Gerry) McMahon, Jack (Barb) Davis, Patricia (Steve) Rettig, Maureen Wunderlich and Susie Kemnetz, 16 grandchildren, 21 great grandchildren, 4 nephews, and 3 nieces.

As it was back in those days, Kate did not work outside of the home. She had all she could handle taking care of her family. Kate and Johnny were long time members of Mt. Hawley Country Club. They enjoyed many years of golf, and many years of close friendships. When the children were younger, Sunday picnicking was something we all looked forward to after a day of fun in the sun! Kate excelled at the game of bridge and had a few different groups she played in.

Services will be held at St. Vincent de Paul Church, Tuesday, January 5th, at 10:30 am with a visitation 1 hour prior. Covid restrictions will apply.

The family would like to thank the Proctor Place staff, especially those in “Shepherds Way”, for the excellent quality of care and friendship they provided during the Covid Crisis.
