Obituary of Nancy E. Davis

Nancy Davis of Princeton New Jersey passed away on July 17th, 2019 at home surrounded by her family after battling ovarian cancer for over 2 ½ years. Nancy was born in 1943 in Phillipsburg, NJ and is predeceased by her mother Katheryn Eisenhauer and father, Harold Eisenhauer. She is survived by her husband of 55 years A. Douglas Davis, two sons Douglas and Devin, daughter in laws Alejandra and Neelam, and four grandchildren who she could not see enough of, Samantha, Cameron, Carina, and Andrew. Nancy graduated from Phillipsburg High School in 1961 and later continued her education at Churchman’s Business College in Easton, Pennsylvania. In 1963, she met A. Douglas Davis of Belvidere, NJ and the two were married in 1964. In 1969, Nancy moved to Princeton with her husband and young son Douglas where she worked as a bookkeeper for several businesses and managed Polly’s Fine Candy on Palmer Square. She served as a supportive baseball mom and assistant coach to her son’s teams for seven years and was a loved member of her community with her involvement in the Princeton Fire Department and the Princeton School District. Her favorite past times were sitting on a pile of dirt planting her flowers, baking cakes for her grandchildren and caring for her dog Mindy. Nancy was a devoted wife, a loving mother and an adored grandmother. She will be honored on Thursday July 25th from 5-8pm at the Mather-Hodge funeral home. The family requests that in lieu of flowers donations be made to cancer research.
