Ellen Sue Davis, 71, of Bucyrus, went to her Heavenly home on Wednesday, April 5, 2023 following a recent illness.
She was born December 23, 1951 in Bucyrus to the late David D. and Gladys (Ward) Denzer. On April 6, 1970, she married Jesse William Davis and he survives. Ellen had previously worked outside the home, but her main focus was caring for her family as a homemaker. In fact, family was what kept her going. They shared many good times while gathering for holidays, cookouts and several random occasions. While together, Ellen always enjoyed card games such as Shanghai, Phase 10 and UNO.
Ellen lived a Christ centered life and until her recent decline in health, she attended Bucyrus Freewill Baptist Church. She will be remembered for her heart of gold and was always there for others in their time of need. Ellen enjoyed traveling when the opportunity arose and was fond of her most recent trip to Gatlinburg. Some of her hobbies included knitting and crocheting as well as working crossword puzzles and playing computer games such as Word Jumble and Solitaire. For relaxation, she liked to watch TV, with Jeopardy being her favorite show and she never turned down a Diet Coke or Cool Ranch Doritos.
She will be deeply missed by Jesse, her husband of 53 years; two children, Traci (Kevin) Banks and Chad (Lori) Davis Sr., five grandchildren, Jocelyn Hill, Shania Hill, Chad Davis Jr., Quinton Davis and Lestat Davis; two great grandchildren, Addison and Nevaeh Hill; four siblings, Mary Stoffer, Ruth (Art) Brown, Carol (Steve) Aurand and Paul (Louise) Denzer as well as many nieces and nephews. Ellen was preceded in death by two brothers, Ralph and Roger Denzer.
A graveside funeral for Ellen will begin at 11:00 am Monday, April 10 at Olentangy Cemetery, 1233 Shearer Rd., Galion, Ohio 44833 with Pastor Lyle Arnett officiating. If desired, donations can be made payable to Wise Funeral Service to help offset expenses. Expressions of sympathy are encouraged to be shared on her tribute wall.
