Betty Lou Davis


(Nov. 8, 1938 - Dec. 5, 2017)

Betty Lou Davis, longtime Cody resident, 79, died Tuesday, Dec. 5, 2017, with the support of her family and friends.

Betty was born on Nov. 8, 1938, in Barnesville, Minnesota, to George and Dorothy Iken.

She married Bradley Davis on June 8, 1956, in Fargo, North Dakota. Together they had two children, Bradley Davis Jr. and Lisa Kurtz.

For over 27 years she enjoyed her work at the local hardware store Gambles, where she was a well-loved, knowledgeable employee. She was well known in the community for her business Betty’s Daycare on Stampede Ave. For over 14 years Betty enjoyed working with the children, loving each child as one of her own and always had a way of connecting with each family.

Some of Betty’s passions were camping with her grandchildren, family vacations to her mother’s lake cottage, maintaining her flower and vegetable garden, going to lunch and playing cards with her friends and family.

Betty was a wonderful and caring woman who never failed to put others before herself. She will be forever missed and remembered by all who knew her.

Betty is survived by the love of her husband of 62 years, Bradley Davis Sr.; son Bradley Jr.; five grandchildren Joshua, Stephenie, Brittney, Ericha and Kelsee, six great-grandchildren Adrianna, Nathan, Alec, Alexa, Aubrielle and Eliza; as well as her brother George and two sisters Donna and Corine.
