Janice Davis Obituary
JANICE DAVIS Janice (Jan) Davis, 80, of Chico, California, passed away peacefully on February 11, 2014 at California Park Rehabilitation Hospital, at Sierra Sunrise Terraces. She was born on March 6, 1933 in Long Beach, CA. to Pauline Winsor and Milton Arnold Musser. Jan's father, Milton, passed away early, and Pauline married 2nd, James W. Myers , who was a most wonderful dad for Jan throughout much of her life. The Myers family moved to Chico in 1945 after James returned from the war. Jan attended Chico Senior High School, and Chico State University where she met her husband Joseph B. Davis. When Joseph graduated from the University he enlisted in the Army and was stationed in Germany. Jan joined him there, where their daughter Lani was born. Jan and Joe Davis and their two children, Lani and Mark, lived in north Chico, where the family home was kept for 50 years. They enjoyed the simple pleasures of life in Chico. Jan is survived by her husband Joseph B. Davis; her son Mark Davis of San Francisco; her daughter Lani and son-in-law Harry Dundore of Chico; her brother and sister-in-law, David and Cleo Myers of Pacific Grove, CA; brother-in-law Donald Parker and sister-in-law Katherine (Davis) Parker of Las Vegas, NV; grandson Andre' Leigh, his wife Kathy; and great-granddaughters Luka and Mia Leigh of Hong Kong. At her request there will be no funeral or memorial services. The family is planning a Celebration of Life for Jan on the North Coast this spring.
