EDDINGTON and BANGOR – Janet “Jeannette” M. Davis, 81, a resident of Bangor for many years, left a year of pain behind and passed into God’s heaven Feb. 12, 2013. She was cared for by her dear daughter, Lori Levasseur of Eddington, where Jeannette resided. She was born Feb. 21, 1931, in Bangor, the fourth child of Arthur and Olive (Sabine) Inman.
Her life was family first. She was the dearest wife, mother, grandmother, sister and aunt. Jeannette had a sweet, kind heart that shined through. On May Day 1952, she married her childhood sweetheart, John H. Davis. They remained constant companions until his death in 2001. She loved summer, fishing and her camp at Chemo. Jeannette loved the big crowds of family and friends that gathered there. Shopping, cooking, playing Skip-Bo and the great outdoors were her passions.
She was blessed with three adoring children, Lori Levasseur and mate, Jim Bladen, of Eddington, with whom she shared the last 12 years of her life; Lisa Connelly and her husband, Sean, of Eddington and her first born, John H. Davis Jr. and his wife, Linda, of Glenburn; and four grandchildren, Timothy Davis and his wife, Jennifer, Ashley Levasseur, Joadi Benton and Gayle Chambers and her husband, Edmund. Also surviving are Jeannette’s very special great-grandsons, Jacob “Jake” Pyles and Justin Chambers. She leaves behind two brothers, Irving Inman and William Inman; three sisters, Patricia Cushman, Olive Pierce, and Juanita Estey and her husband, Bernie; two sisters-in-law, Evelyn Inman and Lillian Davis; many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews and cousins. Waiting with God to greet her are her blessed parents, Olive and Arthur Inman; her husband, John; two brothers, Roger and Clifford Inman, several nieces and nephews; Jeannette will live forever in our hearts.
A funeral service will be held 11 a.m. Friday, Feb. 15, at Brookings-Smith, 133 Center St., Bangor. The family invites relatives and friends to share conversation and refreshments at the Family Reception Center of Brookings-Smith, 163 Center St., Bangor, immediately after the service Friday.
