Obituary of Elizabeth Jolyn Davis
Please share a memory of Elizabeth to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Elizabeth Jolyn Davis passed away on August 31, 2022. She is survived by her proudest accomplishment in life; her daughter, Darian Rutter, and her loyal family. Her 'tiny but mighty' family stood by her; Jolyn's father Allen Oberlin and step-mother Elizabeth Oberlin; her mother Linda Spicer and her sister Margaret Donoghue.
Jolyn was a comedic spirit and always loved a good laugh. She had a playful, silly and endearing sense of humor and could find the funny in almost anything; some would call this her greatest super power. She loved old movies, well-dressed men, flowers, reading and tomato and mayonnaise sandwiches. Jolyn always felt her best dressed up, with her make-up and false eye-lashes on, strapped into her best high heeled shoes, with her hair teased so big that she swore it would call the 1980's back to life.
She had a soft spot for stray cats, people in need and the elderly. Never a day went by that she didn't mention her grandmother Nina, that had passed many years ago; her love for her never weakened. She shined brightest around people; she had a way that made everyone feel special. Talkative, witty and outrageous at times; she could hold the attention of any room.
Jolyn was the most proud of her lovely daughter Darian; watching her grow and become her own force in this world made her happy.
Her entire family is thankful for the warm and caring wishes; we will be having a private remembrance for her. To all that were kind and loving to Jolyn; allow us to express our gratitude for your generosity.
