Patty J. (Yeskie) Davis, 80, Marion, went to be with the Lord at 11:15 am on Monday, September 16, 2019, at Marion General Hospital. Born in Marion on Tuesday, June 6, 1939, Patty was the daughter of Ernest Lloyd and of Myrtle (Parish) Pearson.

She married William "Bill" Davis on October 12, 1996, and he survives. She was previously married to Dale Yeskie on November 11, 1956, and they shared nearly 34 years together before he passed away on September 10, 1990.

Throughout her life, Patty faithfully served both husbands, children, and step-children. She loved the Lord and was a member of First Christian Church in Gas City, where she also sang in the choir.

She was also part owner of a daycare in Marion for several years.

Numerous people enjoyed Patty's great cooking, especially her delicious cakes and pies. She loved music, singing, collecting angels, and bird watching.
