Age 85, of Lansing, MI, died peacefully in her sleep on January 4, 2021. Born June 8, 1935 in Lansing, she was predeceased by her husband Ronald W. Davis Sr., her brother Charles Ridenour, her son Ronald Davis Jr., daughter Theresa (Davis) Mitchell, granddaughter Jacqueline (Leveque) Lewis, and great-granddaughter Faith Davis.
Sandra was a homemaker and an advocate with a servant’s heart. From her early years of farming and child raising with her husband Ron, to becoming the Director of A New Beginning Pregnancy Center in Charlotte, she always had a smile and a hug for those in need. For many years, Sandy’s strong love of the Lord drew her to regularly attending her church home, Pennway Church of God, in Lansing. She also enjoyed many kinds of games played with her family. She was also a snowbird to Florida earlier on.
She will be remembered mostly for her matriarchal legacy of survivors: daughters, Charmaine (Charles) Leveque, Mary (Craig) Thompson, Catherine (Ronald) O’Keefe, Maureen (Gary) Brooks, and Rebecca (David) Bernier; sons, Charles Davis, Gerard (Rosanne) Davis, Stephen (Robin) Davis, Joel (Julie) Davis, and James (April) Davis; son-in-law, Brian Mitchell; daughter-in-law, Rose (Hoose) Davis; 42 grandchildren; 69 great-grandchildren; 7 great-great-grandchildren; as well as a half-brother, David Ridenour.
A public visitation will be held from 12:00 – 1:45 p.m. on Friday, January 8, 2021, at Pennway Church of God, 1101 E. Cavanaugh Rd., Lansing. A private in-person funeral service will be held for the family, but friends are invited to view the service via livestream from Pennway.
