Obituary for Marion Alice Davis

Marion Alice Davis passed away with her family by her side on September 6, 2023, in Stratford. She was 97 years young!

Marion will be lovingly remembered by her nephew, John Davis (Valerie), her nieces, Sarah Davis (Kirk Jones) and Rebecca Kussner (Bryan), her sister-in-law, Virginia Davis (nee Knell), her great-niece, Hannah Kussner, and great-nephews Jacob Kussner and John-Paul Davis Jones; as well as many relatives and friends.

Marion is predeceased by her parents, Fred and Elizabeth Davis (nee Burrows), her siblings, Betty, George, Melba, John, and Patricia, and her life-long friend, Joyce Jones.

She will be dearly missed by her friends at River Gardens, the home she grew to love after living at 56 Princess Street for 93 years. The family would like to thank the entire River Gardens staff for their amazing love and care over the past four years.

Marion lived a life filled with love, joy, laughter, and kindness. Family and friends meant the world to her as did her city of Stratford where she worked at Bell Canada, attended St. James Anglican church, and was an active member and volunteer in the community. She was a feisty, determined, and lovely person, a world traveler, a chef and baker extraordinaire, an enthusiastic Blue Jays supporter, and a mother hen to all.

Cremation has taken place. A small graveside service in Avondale Cemetery will be held on November 10, 2023 at 11 am followed by a celebration of Marion's life at the Arden Park Hotel from 12 to 4 pm.

Marion donated endlessly to multiple charities, many of which gave hope and opportunity to children. As expressions of sympathy, memorial donations may be made to Sleeping Children Around the World (, Stratford General Hospital Foundation (, or St. James Anglican Church, directly, or through Rutherford Cremation & Funeral Services. 804 Ontario St. Stratford. 519-271-5062.
