Obituary


God looked around the garden,
And found an empty space.
He looked down upon the earth,
And saw your tired face.

He put His arms around you
And lifted you to rest.
God's garden must be beautiful
For He only takes the best.

He knew that you were weary,
and He knew you were in pain.
He knew that you would never
be well on earth again.

He saw the roads were getting rough,
and the hills were hard to climb.
So He closed your weary eyelids,
and whispered peace be thine.

Margueritte Louise Bush Davis, born October 23, 1924, lived fully until her death on March 29, 2015.
Resident of Silverdale, WA. Margueritte passed away peacefully surrounded by the love of her family in Bremerton, WA. Margueritte was born at the old Renton hospital, the closest hospital to her home in Issaquah Washington at the time. Her father's family came over the Oregon Trail by wagon to become part of the original homesteaders in Issaquah then known as Squaw Valley. Her mother was a descendent of the Putnam and Darker family, coming to Washington by way of Canada. Much of Margueritte's family history may be found in the Issaquah museum. A home owned by her family is at the Gillman village in Issaquah and a street bearing the family name "Bush Street" may be found in Issaquah, WA.
Margueritte spent much of her childhood in the town of Lester, Washington where her father ran a dairy and her brothers were employed with the railroad. She had many stories and fond memories of her life growing up going in the small mountain town, now the Tacoma watershed. She moved from home to find work in Seattle at the Old Marine hospital and Pier 91 docks assisting the loading of ordinance in her younger years. She met and married Frank Davis in her 20's while working as an elevator operator at the Marine hospital when he was there as a patient. They were married for 19 years. Many years were spent as a resident of Auburn Washington. She went back to school at age 50 to change her career to a medical records administrator and worked at the Seattle Veterans Administration in the Medical Records department and Eye clinic until her retirement. She enjoyed volunteering with the Auburn Senior center, Meals on wheels and the Auburn Food bank.
Our mom was connected to nature all her life, she loved to fish for Steelhead in Green River, go clamming on the Washington Peninsula, camp at a lake or take walks with her grandkids. She was an avid gardener, growing tomatoes the size of cantaloupes. Many who watched her in her yard say she was the hardest worker they ever saw. She was a friend to anything that had 4 legs, fur or feathers, saving many "lost" cats in her day, by doctoring them up as she put it.
Margueritte will always be remembered for her love of life, great well of generosity, strong will and devotion by all her friends, family and Children, Michael L. and Sheila Davis, Malcolm G. and Laurie Davis, and Kathleen M. Davis. Her Grandchildren Maxwell Davis, Mary and Steven Halterman, Michael Davis, Kaitlin and Scott George, Brett Davis, Alexa Hamby and Matthew Hamby.
The family requests all donations to be sent to a local Humane Society or animal rescue of their choice.
