Virginia Christene (“Teena”) Davis, 92, went to her heavenly home on March 26, 2023. She was a beloved mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and friend, and is again in the arms of her beloved husband, Leo A. Davis, who passed away in 2002.
Teena was born on Christmas Day, 1930, in Breckenridge, a small town in north-central Texas, to Jim and Lou Ella Harrison. Following her father’s death, she was raised by her mother and stepfather. She grew up in Breckenridge, graduating from the local high school and twirling baton for the school marching band.
After relocating to Colorado, Teena met her future husband, Leo Davis, through friends and family. They married on May 22, 1954, and later became parents to sons Gary, now of Castle Pines, and Brett, of Highlands Ranch. Teena’s family was everything to her, and she frequently volunteered in support of her sons’ sports and school activities, including as president of the Aurora Central High School Parent-Teacher Association.
Leo and Teena traveled frequently to Hawaii and other destinations during Leo’s years-long tenure with United Airlines. They enjoyed a rich community of dear friends, with whom they enjoyed playing cards, camping, and spending time at their mountain cabin.
Teena’s Christian faith was an essential part of her life. She and Leo joined First Presbyterian Church of Aurora in its early years, where they faithfully served and attended services for the next 40-plus years. Teena volunteered as a Sunday school teacher and in many outreach positions, and was a welcoming presence on Sunday mornings.
She is survived by her sons, Gary (Carol) and Brett (Kelli), reveled in her role as grandmother to Amy (Pete), Lisa (Reed), Conner, Riley, and Emery, and was a proud great grandmother to Reagan, Max, and Madison. All survive her, as do an assortment of family members and caring friends who will miss her bright smile and warm spirit.
Funeral services will be held on Monday, April 3, at Horan & McConaty Family Chapel, 11150 E. Dartmouth Avenue, Aurora. Viewing will be from 9:30 to 10 am, with services at 10:30 am and a reception to follow. Burial, at Fort Logan National Cemetery alongside her husband, will be private.
