Obituary for Marjorie C. Davis

Marjorie Clymer Davis (1921-2017) passed peacefully on Thursday morning, August 31 after a short illness at Artman Home in Ambler, PA. She was the beloved wife of Theodore H. Davis, Sr.; mother of Theodore H. Davis Jr. of Doylestown, PA; Barbara Davis Treadwell of San Francisco, CA, and Kate A. Davis of Madison, CT; and sister of the late Ellwood Artman Clymer, Jr. (Posie Clymer). She is also survived by her loving daughter-in-law Janet Davis and son-in-law Michael DiGiorgio, as well as her two grandsons, Gregory Davis (Kitee Fu) and Jonah Haas, and her great-grandson Bay Davis.
Marjorie was a lifelong member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, where she was an active member of numerous guilds and committees, was a delegate to National Church Women’s conferences, and served in the homeless kitchen at Trinity Lutheran Church in Dover, NJ.
As a young woman, Marjorie graduated from Collingswood High School, where she met her late husband, Theodore Sr. They were married as he went off to serve in World War II as a lieutenant and navigator in the U.S. Army Air Corps. While Ted was overseas, Marge worked in the Philadelphia Shipyards as a draftswoman, designing systems for battleships. After the war, while raising a family, Marge and Ted lived in Collingswood, NJ, Cleveland, OH, Cherry Hill, NJ, Omaha, NB, and northern NJ. For the past three years Marjorie has been a resident of the Artman Home, where she was proud of her legacy as a descendant of its founder, Major Enos Artman.
Marjorie was an upbeat, vivacious woman who enjoyed spending time with friends and family and loved to do things for others. For many years she worked with St. Hubert’s Animal Shelter in Morristown, NJ, bringing therapy dogs and cats to people in need of comfort. She always had an encouraging word to those around her and expressed her care, support, and concern for those faced with challenges. She was open-minded, courageous and progressive-thinking. Her warm blue eyes and radiant smile will be sorely missed by those who knew and loved her.
The immediate family held a brief memorial at Artman Home. Condolences can be left on the Tribute Wall of this Web site. In lieu of flowers contributions can be made in memory of Marjorie Davis to benefit Artman Home, 250 N. Bethlehem Pike, Ambler, PA 19002 and sent to the home or to any member of the family.
