February 28, 1945 - February 16, 2022
Our beloved Mavis Pocha-Davis passed away on Wednesday, February 16th, 2022, at the age of 76. The family is deeply saddened and will miss her. She was born in Prince Albert, SK to Harvey and Harriet Pocha on February 28, 1945.
Mavis loved watching the birds in her backyard and enjoyed a good cowboy movie, especially John Wayne. Mavis knew her forest and plants very well and often went hunting with her husband Rickey. She had a love for gardening and quilting also. She was a very excellent cook and loved to bake. No one went home hungry when Mavis cooked.
Mavis helped shape the lives of many young people as she taught life skills at various schools in the Prince Albert area. She was also an Ordained minister and was very active in the Under the Juniper Tree Chapel. She loved God deeply and was a prayer warrior. As teacher- preacher she gave the gospel freely to the listeners.
Mavis was also active as a Metis Elder. She loved to dive into the history of her culture. Not to mention her Bannock and jams were the best! Mavis loved jigging.
Mavis was a happy and knowledgeable woman and was adventurous and traveled all over the country. She especially loved to drive to British Columbia and Ontario to visit family. She knew her way and God was always with her.
Anyone who knew Mavis was touched by her giving, humorous, and creative spirit.
Mavis will be missed by her husband, Rickey Davis; her sons, Curtis (Arlene) Pocha, Randy (Joanne) Davis, Todd (Marianne) Davis; several grandchildren and great grandchildren; sisters, Karen, Vivian, Linda; and brother, Stuart. As well as her extended family and an abundance of friends. We will all miss her more than words can say.
She is preceded in death by her parents; daughter, Charmain; son, Terry; sister Gloria; and bothers, Henry, Roland, George, and Wilbur.
