Florence Davis Obituary

Florence Leora (Hebdon) Davis, 91, passed away peacefully May 13, 2018, in Idaho Falls, surrounded by her family. What a glorious Mother's Day for our Mom.

Florence was born in Taylor, Idaho, on Oct. 18, 1926, to Melvin J. Hebdon and Florence May (Egbert) Hebdon. They later moved to Idaho Falls to a home her father had built. That is where she and her six sisters were raised. Florence graduated from Idaho Falls High School in 1944.

She met Earl Kay Davis in 1946 on a blind date. After a short courtship, they were married on her birthday, Oct. 18, 1946. They made their first home in Rexburg. They subsequently moved to Twin Falls, Idaho, and in 1954, they moved into their home in Ammon where they raised their eight children and resided for the last 64 years.

Florence loved to sing and watch her children as they grew up. She was a staunch protector of her children. Her passion truly was her family. She was a member of the LDS faith and held many different positions in the church through the years.

Florence is survived by her husband, E. Kay Davis; her sister, Bernetta Anderson (John); her eight children: Steven Davis, of Idaho Falls; Blaine Davis (Jackie), of Idaho Falls; Susan Carter (Don), of Roberts; Kevin Davis (Debi), of Idaho Falls; Wendy Davis, of Idaho Falls; Mark Davis, of Meridian, Idaho; Scott Davis, of Grantsville, Utah; and Tim Davis, of Rigby; as well as 41 grandchildren, 38 great-grandchildren, one great-great-grandson, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Florence was preceded in death by her parents; sisters: Ramona Hansen, Barbara Wewers, Meldeane Whitmill, Peggy Ogle and Kathy Shepherd; one son, David Kay Davis; two grandsons, Zachary Davis and Uriah McIntyre; and one great-grandson, Simon Davis.

Mom will be dearly missed but lovingly remembered in our hearts forever. She truly was the best mom ever.
