Mrs. Leone Marie Davis of Cedar Springs, Michigan, age 89, passed away into the arms of her Lord and Savior on Sunday, March 1, 2015. She was born to Frank and Auril (Wells) Middleton on Friday, August 21, 1925 in Grant, Michigan and had been a life-long resident of the West Michigan area. During her childhood, she was raised on several farms in the Grant, Bailey, Casnovia, and Kent City areas. This sustainable lifestyle served as a blessing for a child growing up during the Depression era. As a child she always found herself picking string beans and cucumbers. Leone attended the Free Methodist Church. She loved to attend Sunday school and prepared funeral lunches. In addition to being a homemaker, Leone also worked for Wolverine Worldwide for 21 years and was a cook and prep cook at Kelly’s Restaurant where she was well known for her croutons. Leone loved many things in life, such as square dancing since she was a young girl, and going to the Montcalm County 4-H Fair in Greenville. However, the love she had for her family and the faith she had in her Lord, was truly immeasurable. She was a loving and devoted wife, wonderful mother and mother-in-law, and the best grandmother anyone could ask for. She will be sadly missed and fondly remembered by family, friends, and all those who knew her. Leone is survived by her loving children Skip (Cindy) Davis and Sharon DeVries; five grandchildren; eleven great grandchildren; one great-great grandchild; siblings Barth Middleton, Francis “Butch” (Glenda) Middleton, Opal Waller, Lucille Middleton; and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband Charles Davis in 1992; son-in-law, Don DeVries; and siblings Vera Armstrong, Agnes Feikema, Cleo Middleton, and Clair Middleton. Visitation was held on Tuesday, March 3, 2015, and funeral service for Leone was celebrated at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, March 4, 2015, at Pederson Funeral Home. Interment will be in Courtland Township Cemetery.
