Obituary of Marsha Davis
Marsha D. Davis of Bellingham passed away on Saturday, September 9, 2017 at the age of 83. She was born September 1, 1934 in Seattle to Stephen Marsh and Alice Davis. Marsha graduated from Stadium High School in Tacoma. She attended Washington State College (WSU) and became a lifelong supporter of the Cougars — “Go Cougs!”
Marsha loved to travel, and while visiting Hawaii, she met her husband, Jack R. Davis. They were married on January 31, 1959 in Tacoma. Jack’s military career took them to Air Force bases around the country where she was actively involved in the Officers’ Wives Club. This continued until his retirement in 1975, at which time the family moved to Bellingham.
Marsha was outgoing and very active in her community. She was a member of the Assistance League of Bellingham and Chapter F, PEO Sisterhood. Marsha served in leadership roles within both organizations. During retirement, they traveled extensively, including cruises to Alaska, the Caribbean, Panama Canal, and Hawaii. They enjoyed spending winters with their RV in Arizona.
Marsha will be greatly missed by her family and friends. She was predeceased by her parents and her sister Pamela Prescott. Marsha is survived by her husband Jack; son Greg; granddaughter Ashley; nephew Tommy Davis; nieces Alicia Delegans (Andrew), Constance Perry (David), Marsha Brady (Dennis), and several great-nieces and great-nephews.
