Eva Pearl Davis

Eva Pearl Davis, 89, passed away peacefully at home, Sunday, May 12th, 2019 surrounded by her loving family.

Eva was born in Morgansville WV, to the late Francis and Edna (Matthey) Swisher and lived in the Akron area most of her life. After raising her children and helping with grandchildren she worked at Allied Microfilm and retired after many years of service. She was a faithful member of the Kingdom Hall Central in Akron and was baptized in the faith as a Jehovah's Witness. She enjoyed spending her time reading and gardening and never met an animal she didn’t love.

In addition to her parents, Eva is preceded in death by her one true love of 53 years, Theadore Davis; baby Jade Davis; and son-in-law John Ritchie. She is survived by her children, Evelyn Sue Hughes, Steven Craig (Gloria) Davis, Katherine Jean (John) Kranshan, Jonathan Edward (Jacqueline) Davis, Margaret Ann Ritchie, and William Theadore Davis; daughter-in-law Gale Nolan; 11 grandchildren; 20 great-grandchildren; 2 great-great-grandchildren; her brother Charles Swisher; and many loved ones and friends. We are heartbroken at the loss of our matriarch who set such a wonderful example for us all. We will miss her dearly.

Memorial Service led by Henry Dixon will be Friday, 2:00 pm at Hennessy-Bagnoli-Moore Funeral Home, 936 N Main St. Akron (corner of N. Main St and Mildred Ave.). Visitation will be ONE HOUR PRIOR to service time at the Funeral Home. Eva’s final resting place will be Ohio Western Reserve National Cemetery with Dear Old Dad. You are invited to hbm-fh.com to view Eva’s tribute wall, offer condolences and share memories.

Dear family and loved ones, please accept my sincere condolencesfor your loss. It has helped me and many others to know that the Bible promises that soon God will swallow up death forever (Isaiah 25:8) and that He will bring about a resurrection of our dear loved ones (John 5 : 28, 29) . May the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, comfort you during your time of sadness. (2 Corinthians 1: 3)
