In Loving Memory Of
Lois Anne Davis
1956 ~ 2023

Moncton, NB – It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Lois Davis, 67, on Friday, July 14th, 2023 at the Moncton Hospital.

Born in Moncton, she was the daughter of Marvin and Gladys Davis (Williston).

Besides her parents, Lois will be sadly missed by her three siblings: Ruth Hovey of Moncton, Diane Hope (Dave) of Ontario, and Clark (Cheryl) Davis of Rothesay; as well as several aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews, and many close friends from across the world.

Lois was predeceased by her grandparents, Curtis and Aggie Davis; as well as several cousins, aunts, and uncles.

Lois worked for many years in Asia teaching English as a second language. She was much loved by her students and fellow co-workers. She had the opportunity to travel extensively and was an amazing photographer.  Lois loved life, always looked at the positive, and never backed away from an adventure or a challenge. This tenacity served her well in her final years as she battled an aggressive cancer right up until her final moments.

The family will be having a private celebration of life at a later date.

Donations in Lois’ memory can be made to the Friends of the Moncton Hospital palliative care unit.

The family invites you to sign an online book of condolences at:

  7. Dear Lois,
    It’s been such a privilege to have known you and call you my friend. I have lost a much loved brunch buddy, whose seat is extremely hard to fill!

    I loved listening to all stories and yarns, while we ate sumptuous foods. Your travel and life in Korea, your life in theatre, school escapades. We talked effortlessly. Copious cups of coffee and lots n lots of laughs! That sparkle in your eye! ✨️ I found these meetings always uplifting, always brought the light, even when occasionally there were tears in the past years.

    We shared a love of travel, of textiles, and you invited me to theatre productions too! I met you so many years ago when on the HITS productions, and I only got to know you more in the past 3. We shared a love of photography, especially of flowers, which was exemplified on our last trip.🌹
    I miss our conversations. I’ll keep talking to you via your much loved dragonflies! Keep sharing the weird observations that you totally got and we laughed about! I’m sure you would love that. 🦋

    You lived life so well. You fashioned the stage on which you walked, and lived uncompromisingly true to yourself. You were feisty and firey and in equal measures, carried yourself with such dignity and grace. A force to reckon with, and such gentle calm demeanour, that always gave me energy, and encouraged me to show up and be my best.

    You’ve changed me, dear Lois. I now know what it means to live life so very well. To show up. Be present and give it your all. That’s a true gift.

    ✨️Very fittingly, you passed away on the night of Matariki, as it was in New Zealand. ✨️This is an important and beautiful day of remembering and appreciation in NZ, and marks the rising of the pleides star system in the southern hemisphere. Each star is a sister, with wise messages. So for me, you’re right up there, shining brightly, cajoling, laughing, guiding encouragement, with your embroidery slippers and fashionista ways! Fair thee well, my fair lady Lois! 🧚
