DAVIES, MARIT EUGENIE
April 17, 1950 – July 28, 2014
Marit left us peacefully at home
after a brave fight with breast
cancer. She was predeceased by her mother Inger, father Eugen (Gene), mother-in-law Cynthia
Davies and brother-in-law Eric.
She is survived by her husband Chuck and their two children:
Christine Woodcox (Rick)
(grandkids Mica, Jorden) and
Michael Davies (Alesha)
(grandchild Hannah); her brother Kurt (JoAnne) (Tara, Chad) and two sisters: Randi (Dan) (Kelsi) and Rosemarie (Lionel) (Jason, Ryan) also mourn her loss. Condolences to her mother-in-law Gina Larsson and to many relatives in Norway.
Marit was born in Oslo, Norway and came to Canada with her Mom in 1955. Her father Eugen, having arrived earlier, was already carving their niche for their lifetime in Fort St. James, BC.
Marit married Chuck Davies in 1969 and their daughter Christine was born in St. John’s Hospital in Vanderhoof. Son Mike followed two and a half years later in New
Westminster, as Chuck attended trade school.
The courageous battle with breast cancer began in 2005, just after a trip to Norway. It was thought at first that with
aggressive treatment the battle had been won, but in 2011 the cancer returned. So few are the short months since her hip replacement and now her journey has ended at age 64, after 45 years of marriage.
Marit has been a wonderful wife, mother, Nana and member of our family. She will be dreadfully missed by all who knew and loved her. Rest well Love, and know you are thought of always.
