Jennifer Davis Obituary

      Jennifer “Jenny” Renee Davis, age 42, of Anna, Illinois, passed away peacefully after a long battle of cancer with her father by her side on December 24, 2023.

      For those who knew Jenny, they would describe her as a sweet soul with a heart of gold who made you feel accepted and cared for. We thank Jenny for being herself; a caring, passionate, strong willed silly little ray of sunshine with a quirky sense of humor, and a big-hearted human being. We are blessed that she taught us to not sweat the small stuff and to never turn anyone away.

      As a person with a passionate interest in film and cinema, an avid film enthusiast, Jenny had her own cinema library with countless DVDs. There was no need to Google a movie as she was a subject matter expert giving you an overview, naming the songs, cast members, to include the movies and TV shows each cast member has appeared in. She was a collector of graphic t-shirts, mainly from her favorite movies, cartoons, and rock groups. Upon entering a room, family, friends, and clinical staff anticipated the theme of her shirt or water thermos leading to conversations of them recollecting their same passion of a movie, TV show, or music group.

          Jenny graduated high school in Yankton, South Dakota. Jenny was passionate for children, the developmentally disabled, as well as animals. She attended Shawnee Community College focusing her career in the field of Early Childhood Education program. She worked at childcare centers as well as RAVE, a Rehabilitation and Vocational Education center. Growing up she found her passion by volunteering at various animal shelters. Some described her as a baby and animal whisperer.

      She enjoyed her travels throughout Colorado, Massachusetts, and Maine. As well as her getaways with family and closest friends. She was always up for an adventure.

      Jenny is proceeded in death by her mother, Donna Davis; brother, Matthew “Matt” Davis; grandparents, William and Glenda Davis and John Cripps; and aunt, Debbie Jackson.

      She is survived by her son, Ryker Healey; father, Randy Davis (Emily) of Marion, Illinois; stepmother “mom”, Lisa Tucek Davis (Orville) of Metropolis, Illinois; grandmother, Mary Cripps of Jonesboro, Illinois; stepbrothers, Connor Chamness and Jordan (Rachel) Chamness; nieces and nephew; loving uncles and aunts; cousins; and Tom Healey, each who individually had a special place in her heart.

      Graveside service and Celebration of Life for Jenny will be announced at a later date.

      In lieu of flowers and gifts, memorial contributions may be made to Mercy Hospital Hospice Center in Paducah, Kentucky or to SIH Cancer Center. Envelopes will be available at Rendleman & Hileman Funeral Home in Anna, Illinois.
