Mary M. Davis, 69

MEREDITH — Mary McDonald Davis, RN, of New Smyrna Beach, Florida and Meredith, NH; passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on April 28, 2013.  She was born on June 11, 1943 in Portland, Maine, daughter of the late Howard and Louise (Metcalf) McDonald.
Mary was a member of the last graduating class of South Paris High school in Maine and attended Laconia Hospital School of Nursing, graduating as a Registered Nurse in 1965.  Mary married her college sweetheart, Ian, on July 1, 1966 and worked as a nurse for many years at the Laconia Hospital.  In 1973, Mary started what she considered her "biggest investment" when she became a stay at home mom to her two adored children, Jeff and Jenna, which was her true passion.  In 1987, Mary started working as a nurse part-time, doing insurance physicals, while taking care of her family and assisting with her parents in their declining years.
In 2003, Mary and Ian bought her long time dream of owning a Florida house and became snowbirds in New Smyrna Beach.
Mary put her family and loved ones above all else, doing anything she could for everyone she could.  Her joy was found around the table, feeding everyone until they were full and then handing them a piece of cake, often saying it was your own darned fault if you left her house hungry! Never one to sit still, Mary loved gardening, rug hooking, quilting, volunteering, yard saling, crafting and traveling.  Mary went on many adventures, often in support of her kids and their crazy ideas, traveling to more than 40 states and four countries.
Mary is survived by her husband of 47 years, Stuart Ian Davis, of NSB, Florida and Meredith, NH; son Jeffrey M. Davis and his wife Karen of Meredith, NH; daughter Jennifer M. Moulton and her husband Corey of Laconia, NH; and beloved grandchildren Nick and Rachael.  Mary had so many people who she loved and cared for and many, many friends she considered sisters and mothered every child with whom she came in contact.
Calling hours will be held at Wilkinson-Beane-Simoneau-Paquette Funeral Home, 164 Pleasant Street, Laconia, NH 03246 on Sunday, May 19, 2013 at 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM, with a celebration of her life to follow at 3:00 PM. Please come armed with stories and pictures to share!
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Southeast Volusia Care Center, 4140 US Highway 1, Edgewater, FL 32141 or the Visiting Nurses of Meredith & Center Harbor, 186 Waukewan Street, Meredith, NH 03253.  Both organizations were close to Mary's heart.
