Dorothy Insley Davis, 87, of Poquoson, went to be with her Heavenly Father on March 2, 2022. Born on April 6, 1934, Dot was a native and lifelong resident of Poquoson, VA. On March 31, 1951, she married the love of her life, Roy Edward Davis. They were happily married for 68 years. She was a lifelong and faithful member of Trinity United Methodist Church. There, she was a member of the Wesley Fellowship Sunday School Class and the Agnes Carmines Circle until her health would no longer allow her to attend.
Aside from her fun-loving spirit and playful personality, she was an excellent cook and known for her delicious meals and baked goods. She compiled some of her favorite recipes into a cookbook for her family that will be cherished for years to come.
Dot loved to travel with both friends and family. For many years, their home away from home was in Myrtle Beach, S.C., where she loved to camp, play cards and shop.
Dot is preceded in rest by husband, Roy Edward Davis; her parents, James Thomas Insley and Irene West Insley; and brother, George Thomas Insley.
Her memory is cherished by her daughters, Cythina Watkins (Danny) and Tommi Weisner (Johnny); grandchildren, Lynn Zimmerman (Craig), Michelle Fitzpatrick (Jarrod), Shannon Hayes (Donny) and Jonathan Weisner (Erica); great-grandchildren, Shayne and Devyn Zimmerman, Kendall, Jackson and Hunter Fitzpatrick, Logan, Madison and Harper Hayes, and numerous extended family members.
