DAVIS, Betsy Betsy A. Davis, 67, of Pepperell, MA, formerly of Lowell, MA, Westborough, MA, and Medfield, MA, lost her long, determined battle with pancreatic cancer on August 8, 2018. She is survived by her loving husband of 35 years, her very best friend Ned Ellsworth of Pepperell, MA; her sister Nancy Davis Mills and husband Earl Mills of Alexandria, NH; her sister Linda Davis Amsden of Southampton, MA, and brother-in-law Howard Amsden of New Hampton, NH; and her brother Jeffrey Davis and wife Bonnie Kudlicki of Richardson, TX. Also by her niece Mariah Amsden and husband Marc Robert, and their son Avery Robert of W. Boylston, MA; and her nephew Seth Amsden and wife Soula Pefkaros of Harrisonburg, VA. She is predeceased by her parents Elisabeth 'Betty' S. Davis and W. Wallace 'Wally' Davis. Betsy lived to the fullest. With her many years in high tech, Betsy became a greatly respected and talented software engineer and passionate mentor to many junior engineers. Prior to her career in technology, she earned several college degrees and pursued her many diverse interests, from religious studies, to art and sewing, to the ability to drive a manual shift effortlessly through Boston traffic. She and her beloved husband shared many adventures as they traveled, and she delighted in describing those adventures to friends and family. Betsy will be remembered as a brilliance akin to no other. She was, after all, THE only female concrete truck dispatcher in Colorado! AND she was featured on a Disney World stage, she flew from a hang glider in south central Mexico, and she traveled the Far East and to Hawai'i Judgment free, without a single condescending tone, legitimately hoping only the best for others, tenacious, ever logical, detail perfect, surprisingly humble and off-handedly funny, she always brought more than met the eye. Betsy was never run-of-the-mill. As per Betsy's wishes, no services are planned. She and her family ask that you honor Betsy by making a donation to pancreatic cancer research.
