Davis, Dorothea (Wirth)




Our beloved mother, Dorothea Wirth Davis, passed away peacefully in her sleep early Saturday morning, June 18, 2016, at the age of 96, in Oakmont, Pennsylvania. She had moved there in 2015 to be closer to family. Prior to that, she had been a long time resident of Naples, Florida, where her husband, Eugene R. Davis, Jr., passed away in 1996. Also preceding her in death were her parents, Frances and Christian Wirth, and her brother, John C. J. Wirth. Dot was born and raised in New York City, raised her family in Ohio and Pittsburgh, and retired to Naples in the winters but spent summers at the family's property in Jay, NY, in the Adirondack mountains. She was first taken there by her then-fiancé in the summer of 1941 and visited every summer until 2014, 73 years. She is survived by her four children, Eugene R. Davis, III (Susan), Broomfield, CO, Chris Chambers (Doug), Oakmont, PA, Susan Rouse (Larry), Southern Pines, NC, and Mark Davis (Jan) Ben Avon Heights, PA; eight grandchildren, and twelve great grandchildren. Of the great grandchildren, the oldest and youngest girls are named Dorothea, which means "Gift from God." She is also survived by many loving nieces and nephews. To us all, Mother was indeed a Gift from God, and she will be sadly missed. We'll always cherish her greeting, "Hello, dahling!" and her beautiful smile. A memorial Mass will be celebrated at St Brendan's Church in Keene, NY, on August 6, 2016, followed by the Rite of Committal in the Keene cemetery, where Mother will be laid to rest alongside her husband of 53 years. The family would like to thank the staff at Presbyterian Senior Care in Oakmont for the wonderful care they provided Dot and her entire family during her time there. Donations may be made to St. Brendan's Church, 17 Church St., Keene, NY 12942. Arrangements by BURKET-TRUBY FUNERAL HOME CREMATION & ALTERNATIVE SERVICES, INC. Oakmont
