Oct. 25, 1935 - March 19, 2021

Bobbie Lee Davis, 85, of Sweet Home died March 19, 2021.

She was born Oct. 25, 1935 in San Diego, Calif. to Gwendolyn (Fowlkes) and Samuel J. Rice Jr.

She lived in Medford while growing up and attended high school there. She lived in Bakersfield, Calif., where she raised a family, before moving to Oregon where she, her mother and sister bought The Mountain House in Cascadia.

Mrs. Davis volunteered with the Oregon Jamboree in the 1990s. She ran the ticket sales office before moving into crowd management.

Her family was her biggest joy. She loved family gatherings and made sure no one was left hungry. She loved to give gifts. Christmas was her favorite holiday to celebrate. She was always up for a game of marbles as well.
