Zella "Bonnie" Yvonne (Paramore) Davis

August 14, 1931 ~ September 12, 2021 (age 90)


Zella Yvonne “Bonnie” Davis, 90, of Irvine, California passed away September 12, 2021. She was the oldest of 14 children born to Alvin and Ellen Paramore on August 14, 1931, in New London, Ohio. She graduated high school in 1949 from Ruggles Troy High School.

She is survived by her husband Raymond A. Davis of 32 years.  She is also survived by her daughter, Jennifer (Terry) Asbury, son Thomas (Morag) Neer, and stepchildren Janell (Rick) Dankert, and Rod (Carla) Davis; 5 granddaughters, 5 grandsons and 7 great grandchildren; 4 sisters, Jean, Eleanor (Lennie), Marilyn and June and 4 brothers, Harold (Susan), Marion (Mary Jo), Mark (Patty) and Richard and an extensive family. She was preceded in death by her parents; brothers Art, Jim, Robert, Lawrence; sister Mary; brothers-in-law Jack and Chuck; sister-in-law Thelma and son Timothy.  

Raised in a large family she was given to kind generosity, a loving nature, stubbornness, strong will and a mischievous sense of humor most likely passed on from her father. What can you say about a woman who has given us life?  As a mother, she was simply the best.  Our Heavens shine brighter!  

Bonnie and her husband Ray spent their retirement years cruising the continental United States on Casper, their Honda Gold Wing during summers visiting family and friends.  They also headed up the organization MARC (Motorcycling Amateur Radio Club) for many years in Southern California.   

Interment is scheduled for June 18, 2022, at 1 p.m. at Greenwich Greenlawn Cemetery, Greenwich, Ohio. Fond memories and condolences for Bonnie’s family may be given at
