Cleone Davis

September 9, 1926 — July 1, 2019


Cleone Barnes Davis, 92, of Ocoee, Florida, left her earthly body and was released into the light of God's love Monday, July 1, 2019. She passed peacefully, the way she lived her life.

Cleone had a beautifully sweet soul. A devoted wife and mother, she raised five daughters. Cleone was active in her political party, church and community.

She loved to read and had a “library” of books. She’d start each day with her newspaper, coffee and a powdered doughnut. Even though she was a working mom, Cleone always put her family first.

She had a clever sense of humor, a sharp intellect and was blessed with a lively spirit. She was a good neighbor and friend.

Cleone worked for General Electric in Hendersonville, North Carolina, and Court of Flags Resort in Orlando.

She was the daughter of Guy and Eva Barnes of Syracuse, New York, and the wife of Richard Dempsey Davis, the love of her life. She was predeceased by her parents; her husband; her brother, Don Barnes; and daughter, Becky Rice.

She is survived by daughters, Marilynn Davis of Sylva, North Carolina, Debbie Landers (Chuck) of Fairview, North Carolina, Nancy Kirkpatrick (Tim) of Greer, South Carolina, Carol Davis of Ocoee, Florida; and sister, Nadine Watkins, Syracuse, New York. She is also survived by 10 loving grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.

A celebration of life service will be held at 10:30 a.m. Monday, July 29, at Collison Carey Hand Funeral Home, Winter Garden, Florida.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105.
