In memory of Ferol Jean Davis

(Dec. 17, 1927 – Aug. 16, 2016)

Ferol, wife of Howard Davis, passed away after a brief time at the Pincher Creek Health Care Centre on Tuesday, August 16, 2016, at the age of 88 years.

Ferol was born at home on the family farm in Lima County, Illinois to Truman and Lydia Waite. She was an identical twin to her sister Carol and the older sister to brother Daryl. Ferol (& Carol) enjoyed their childhood years on the family farm, especially riding their much-loved ponies.

After managing a ranch at Roosville, BC, for 13 years, Howard & Ferol realized their dream of owning their own ranch in the foothills of Alberta. They moved their young family and herd of Hereford cattle to the Porcupine Hills ranch, which they came to love. They experienced both the rewards and challenges of ranch life there for 55 years.

Less than two years ago, Ferol and Howard left their ranch home and moved to Vista Village in Pincher Creek, Alberta. She passed away less than a month before their 70th wedding anniversary.

Ferol is survived by her husband Howard Davis; her children: Susan Earl, Ron (Donna) Davis & Mike (Marj) Davis; her grandchildren: Cody (Kathy) Earl; Bob (Jill) Earl; Jay (Denise) Earl; Krista (Ryan) Myers; Kara Davis; Clay (Meghan) Davis; Angela Davis and Hayley Davis; her great grandchildren: Chase & Kady Earl; Maddisyn and Zakk Myers and Nathan & Nick Kelly. Special mention of her little dachshund Peppy who was seldom found far from her side for 12 years.

The Memorial Service for the late Ferol Davis was held on Tuesday, August 23, 2016 at 2:00 pm at the Cowley Community Hall. A private graveside service was held for Ferol at the Livingston Cemetery.
