Marilyn Davis - 2/20/ 2018

keith and marilyn davis

It is with deep sadness that we report the passing of Marilyn Davis.
She will be remembered for her ever positive attitude and her
true love of her home town and its people. She treasured Red Cliffs
 Audubon and, along with her husband, Keith, founded the
organization in St. George. She especially enjoyed working with
the youth and teaching them to love birds and nature as much as she did.

 Marilyn was instrumental in organizing the St. George Winter Bird
Festival and loved the bird art work submitted by children from
 the local schools.  She was a gifted artist herself.  Participating
in the Red Cliffs Audubon monthly field trips, where she could
gather with other birders and "talk birds", was a treat. 

Her weekly Senior Sampler bird articles were fun and informative.
 She was always worrying about the disappearing bird habitat and
wished that she could involve the people even more.
There's so much
more we could say because Marilyn was deeply involved in her
community and willing to do anything to support it.
Please take
care of her birds so she doesn't have to worry.

We're sure she will miss seeing her many, many good friends
as much as they will miss seeing her. Our sympathy to Keith
and his wonderful family for their loss.
