Jeanette “Jean” Davis Loy, 90, died July 1, 2010. She was born in Bradford, Pa., to Laura Amelia Pelton and LeRoy Bertram Davis on Oct. 27, 1919.
In the 1950s, in Denver, Colo., she was a proud member of the American Red Cross Gray Ladies, an organization that provided care and assistance to disabled patients in hospitals and other health care facilities. In the early 60s, she moved with her husband, Max Spears Loy, and children to Chanute. She was employed as a bookkeeper for many years for both Manley Transfer Company and Koch Furniture.
The soul, the personality, the wit and humor of Jean lives on in our lives. When we miss her, we only have to search our hearts for a memory that brings her back to us. Jean was always ready with a kind word, a listening ear, and a gentle way of laughing at life. She kept her sorrows quiet and hidden. She was special to all who knew her.
She was preceded in death by her husband, her sister Elaine Palmer and her parents. She is survived by her sister Peg Robishaw; sons Peter, William (Barbara) and Robert; three grandchilden, Kyla (Michael), Eric (Amy), Shannon (Steve); and six great-grandchildren, Trevor, Wyatt, Ethan, Drew, Morgan and Sayre.
