Cora Mae Davis
Cora Mae Davis, 84 of Moulton passed away Tuesday, February 18, 2020 at Bloomfield Care Center with her family by her side.
Cora Mae was born to Charles & Edna (Wilkins) Thomas on July 10, 1935 in Vernon Township, Van Buren County. Cora Mae attended school in Troy, Iowa. She married Leland Davis on August 12, 1956. To this union came 8 children, 5 girls and 3 boys.
Cora Mae and her husband worked hard together on their family farm, raising their children. She enjoyed gardening and always had flowers growing around the house. Cora Mae drove the tractor and put up hay, and helped with cattle drives every fall. She was a good neighbor, always welcoming everyone in, and always had a meal for anyone who was around. Cora Mae made the best homemade pies and chicken noodles. The word "no" was not in her vocabulary. Cora Mae was someone you could always count on. She loved to visit Oakland Mills for her family reunions.
Cora Mae enjoyed spending time, reading books, Sunday drives, watching Nascar and General Hospital, and going to country music shows, especially those in Exline. One of her well-known hobbies was listening to the police scanner. She loved babies. Cora Mae was faithful to her grandkids, always going to their sporting events and always available to be their "Grandma's Taxi" when they needed a ride. She could always be found around the farm, feeding cardinals, tending to the garden and her flowers, raising and riding horses, and watching the wildlife. Some of Cora Mae's favorite snacks were peppermint candies, lemon merengue pies, and cinnamon rolls.
Survivors include her husband, Leland, children Donna Lee (Tom) Belloma, Jo Ellen (Jack) Replogle, Sherry Lynn (Bryan) Horn, Connie Marie Herteen, Robert Thomas (Theresa) Davis, Lori Ann (Jeff) Krall, 18 grandchildren, 39 great grandchildren, and numerous extended family.

My adopted Mom...
I always thought the world of her...even when she threatened to use the ball bat on us (ha ha).
She will certainly be missed and I'm praying for Leland & family.
