Beverly B "Bev" Davis


Beverly B "Bev" Davis, 68, beloved life-long resident of Nespelem, Washington, and proud member of the Colville Confederated Tribes, went on to join her elders Sunday evening, June 18, 2017, from Grand Coulee, Washington.

Born Wednesday, February 9, 1949, in Nespelem, to Mose and Agnes Andrews-Davis, Bev graduated with the class of 1967 from Coulee Dam High School "Go Beavers" and then went on to college. Bev belonged to "Seven Drums" and enjoyed her work as a medical secretary, then as a dental secretary with Indian Health Services in Nespelem, retiring in December of 2016, after 42 years of serving the needs of her community.

To say that Bev was a sports fan would be an understatement! She was an avid "12th Man," faithfully following her Seahawks from pre-season through post-season play. Bev followed every Seattle Mariners game she could, watched U.F.C. and enjoyed a good basketball matchup...especially when "THE ZAGS" were winning! When not cheering her team and arguing with the refs, Bev relaxed by competing with the slot machines, playing bingo, or just settling down in her favorite chair with a good Danielle Steele mystery, her beloved Rottweiler, "Cleo," close by.

Predeceased by both of her parents and several aunts and uncles, Bev's legacy lives on through the family whom she loved dearly, including children: Stanford Lee Spencer (Carla), Lisa Sue Spencer (Faran Sohappy) and Benjamin Davis Spencer; grandchildren: Justine Alfadil (Yassine), Jayde Spencer, Mariah Spencer, Corvin Dick and Sidney Dick; brother, Markus Davis Sr .; sisters: Darlene Saxon, Vernita M. Davis, Dee Anne Haynes (Rodney Sr.), Renee Davis and Patricia K. Davis; aunt, Marie Piatote; uncle Harrison Davis, as well as numerous nephews and nieces.

Funeral Services were held Wednesday, June 21, 2017, at Nespelem Community Center, and burial followed at the Chief Joseph Cemetery in Nespelem.
