Emily Christine Davis

Emily Christine Davis, 33, passed into the arms of her Heavenly Father on August 16, 2017 in Scranton, PA at the Geisinger Community Medical Center as a result of complications of childbirth.

Born September 17, 1983, Emily graduated from Marathon Central School and Onondaga Cortland Madison BOCES in 2001 and worked as a hair stylist at several area salons. Emily enjoyed fashion and interior design, and happy times with her many friends, clients and schoolmates.  She will be remembered for her friendship, beauty, kindness and love of animals. 

Emily is survived by her parents Steve and Joanie Davis of Marathon, brother Tom Davis of Cortland, and grandmother Joyce Barrows of Marathon, NY.  She was loved and will be dearly missed by daughters Madison and Kennedy Boyer of McGraw, and daughter Gracyn and son Brantley of Carbondale, PA.  In addition, she is survived by a special cousin Kelli Griswold of Cortland, and by many cousins, aunts, uncles and friends.

She was predeceased by her grandfather Robert "Bobby" Barrows of Marathon, and grandparents Thomas "T.D."  and Dorothy Davis of Homer.

"Emmie" was our sweet little girl and she was loved dearly and deeply by her parents, brother and family. We will cherish our precious memories of the happy times we shared and we thank God for letting us have her in our lives for a short time.

"The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.  He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.  He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.  Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.  Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.  Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever."   Psalm 23

Services will be private and internment will be in Marathon Cemetery with K.L. Sharp Funeral Home, Cincinnatus, NY, assisting with the arrangements.  Donations may be made in Emily's name to the Central NY Spay Neuter Assistance Program, 178 Central Ave., Cortland, NY 13045 or the Cortland County SPCA, 879 McLean Rd., Cortland, NY 13045.

I am so very sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to the family. The Bible makes this comforting promise: "Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted, he saves those who are crushed in spirit." (Psalm 34:18) It also assures us: "Throw your burden on Jehovah, and he will sustain you." (Psalm 55:22) May these thoughts and your wonderful memories give you a measure of comfort during this difficult time.
