S. Gail Davis Obituary

S. Gail Davis, 83, of Princeton, passed away Tuesday, January 30, 2024 at Heart-to-Heart Hospice in Evansville. She was born February 10th 1940 in Princeton; the daughter of Arvil Cochran and Rose (Wilderman) Cochran. Gail worked for Princeton Telephone Company as an operator for over 20 years, was known as a hard worker, and was a devout member of St. Joseph Catholic Church. A word to describe who Gail was, would be “caregiver”: a person who tends to the needs or concerns of another; someone who puts themself aside to look after others. Gail cared for others with joy. She was known as “Mammaw” to her grandchildren and “GiGi” to her great grandchildren. She loved anything and everything about her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She loved with a big heart and never knew a stranger. Gail will be missed dearly, but her family and friends will have no shortage of stories and memories to reminisce on. 

Gail is survived by her daughter, Amy Kissel (Mark) of Princeton; four grandchildren, Haley Ziliak (Tyler), Gavin Kissel (Maci), John Kissel (Rachel), and Seth Kissel; five great-grandchildren, Raleigh, Charlotte, and Violet Ziliak, Linnie Kissel, and Layla Kissel; sister, Shirley Farmer of Missouri; and sisters-in-law, Betty Ward, Carrol Brown, and Darlene Lutz (Mike).  

Gail was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Charles F. Davis, Sr.; son, Charles F. Davis Jr.; and siblings, Sue Scott, Kate Cochran, and Charles Cochran.

A memorial mass will be held at 11:00 AM Thursday, February 8, 2024 at St. Joseph Catholic Church with Father Gary Kaiser officiating. Burial will follow at the St. Joseph Cemetery in Princeton.

Family and friends may visit from 9 AM until the service time on Thursday at the church.
