Dorothy Jean Davis (nee Koerber), longtime Grosse Pointe resident, died Friday, December 13, 2019 surrounded by family at the age of 92.
Born June 9, 1927 to the late John and Dorothy Koerber, Dorothy was the loving wife of the late Stanley R. Davis and the beloved mother of Dee Clark (Patrick), Fran Ralstrom (Curt), Teri Davis, and Sandy Davis (Jenifer Elliott). Dorothy was the proud grandmother of Kathleen Wolney (RJ), Molly Clark, Elizabeth Ralstrom (Sam Blanchard), Laura Ralstrom, Christopher Ralstrom, Patrick DiVincenzo (Kelly Solarek), Catie DiVincenzo, Andrew DeMay and Lisette DeMay, and was adored by her great-grandchildren Luke and Madeline Wolney, Kenny, Teddy, and Daniel Blanchard, and Isabella DiVincenzo. She was the dear sister of Ronald, James, and the late Jack, Thomas, and Donald.
Dorothy graduated from St. Martin High School in Detroit and went on to study at Michigan State University and the University of Detroit Mercy. She was a longtime member of Bayview Yacht Club and was a member of St. Paul on the Lake Catholic Church for over 50 years, where she served as a Eucharistic minster. Dorothy enjoyed volunteering in the Cottage Hospital gift shop, playing bridge with friends, and spending time on the water. More than anything, Dorothy loved to spend time with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren; she could be found cooking them meals and making them laugh through the final weeks of her life.
