Florence Davis, 97 years old, entered God’s eternal care at The Gardens at Gettysburg on February 6, 2023. She was the widow of Leighton Davis who died December 3, 1979.
She was born in Philadelphia to Elmer and Florence (Rash) Myers on July 28, 1925. Florence lived in Croydon, Pa for 58 years and for 7 years she lived in Bensalem, PA on land where her parents used to own a farm.

She was a previous member of Eddington United Presbyterian Church, and the Cornwells United Methodist Church. She was a current member of the Gettysburg United Methodist Church.

Florence was a lovely person. She graduated with my mother. I knew Florence and her daughter Patty from attending Eddington United Presbyterian Church. Patty and I went all through Sunday School classes together, and joined Church together. There were many activities in which I was involved, and Patty and her mother were very active in the Church as well. My condolences go out to Patty and the rest of Florence's family and friends.
