K. Isabelle "Issy" Davis, 94, Red Wing, died peacefully Monday, Dec. 30, at St. Brigid's at Hi-Park.

She was born May 6, 1919, in Thurston, Neb., the daughter of Horace and Josephine (Lewin) Walters. She graduated from High School in Thurston and attended Edward's Business College in Sioux City, Iowa.

She married Eugene Davis on May 6, 1941, in Beldon, Neb., and they celebrated 60 years of marriage. They lived in Sioux City until moving to Luverne, Minn., in 1964, then to Red Wing in 1972, where she worked at Pamida. In 1986, they moved to Nevis, Minn., and wintered in Tarpon Springs, Fla. Eugene died July 23, 2001. She moved back to Red Wing in 2005. She was a member of the Methodist Church in Luverne where she taught Sunday school. She loved crocheting and many craft projects. Most recently she enjoyed bingo on Sundays, Eucher and other card games with her friends at Jordan Towers, reading on her kindle and spending time with her family.
