Davis - Melvina Morin


Source: Crawfordsville Weekly Journal, Friday, February 8, 1918, page 3

Mrs. Melvina Morin Davis. (Contributed.) Melvina Morin Davis, wife of Charles Davis, was born in Sugar Creek township, Montgomery county, Sept. 2, 1866, and died January 13, 1918, her death being very sudden and unexpected. She was the daughter of Milton and Rachel Morin, deceased. In the fall of 1866 she became a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church of Kirkpatrick; and also a member of the Eastern Star lodge of Clarks Hill. She was united in marriage to Charles Davis August 27, 1890, and to this union two children were born, Florence and Haven, both of whom are living. She is also survived by two sisters, Mrs. Anna Peak and Mrs. William Herbon, and two brothers, Fielden and William T. Morin. Although Mrs. Davis had been seriously ill in the past few years of her life, death never troubled her, she had often remarked that if she were to pass away the next minute it would not worry her. Suddenly and peacefully death overcame her as she had always desired it should and could she but have asked “that there be no sadness of farewell when I embark.” One of her most intimate friends pays her this tribute that she found the greatest pleasure in giving, which proved as time went on. She was a devoted wife and mother, a kind neighbor and it seemed she found a place in her motherly heart for everyone. She never looked on the dark side of life and was always ready to sympathize with anyone in trouble. Mrs. Davis’ life has been one that when the summons came she silently wrapped the draperies of her couch about her and lay down to pleasant dreams. [Poem -- kbz
