Barbara B. Davis died October 16,2019 in College Station Texas at the age of 94 from Alzheimer’s.

Barbara Louise was born on January 9, 1925 to parents Gordon and Beatrice Bartlett in Claremont NH. She attended Stevens High School where she met her husband Kenneth Arthur Davis. During WWII, Barbara worked as a draftsman for Pratt and Whitney. They married in 1944 while Ken was on furlough from the US Army Air Corp. The original “Barbie and Ken” raised 4 children. In 1969 they moved to Saginaw MI following Ken’s career, moving again to Pittsburgh PA before moving to Meredith NH to the house the family called home for 35 years.

God and their church family was an integral part of their lives. In 2013 when Alzheimer’s began stealing her memories, Barbara moved to College Station TX to live with her daughter. Barbara was a lifetime member of Beta Sigma Chi and the Daughters of the American Revolution. She was an active member of Ellacoya Chapter Order of Eastern Star for more than 40 years. In 1990, she was Worthy Grand Matron for the state of New Hampshire OES centennial year. Barb and Ken enjoyed square dancing, traveling the US with their camper and, most of all, get togethers with family and friends. Most memorable was their 1962 family trip across country to the Seattle World’s Fair in a 16-foot travel trailer.

Barbara’s final wish was to be reunited with Ken in Meredith. She was preceded in death by her husband Ken, her parents, brother Donald Bartlett and sister Janet Shaw and daughter-in-law Dottie Luikkonen. She is survived by children Peter Davis, Marcia Davis and partner Hunter Carbee, Charles Davis and wife Debra, Jan Pfannstiel and husband David; 8 grandchildren, 14 great grandchildren, 5 great great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.

A memorial service will be held on Friday, November 1, 2019 at 1 pm at the Mayhew Funeral Home, 204 D.W. Highway, Meredith NH. The burial will follow at the Meredith Village Cemetery, then a reception at Barbara and Ken’s old home in Meredith. The family requests people make donations to their favorite charity, in lieu of sending flowers.
