She is preceded in death by her parents; two brothers, Hank (Delores) Brunsman and Bill Brunsman; one sister-in-law, Leola Brunsman and one brother-in-law, Bob Luensmann.

In lieu of flowers, a Mary A. Davis Memorial Fund has been established.

The family would like to extend their great appreciation to the 5th floor nursing staff at Finley for their compassion and support.
