Ruth Ann Davis

Ruth Ann Heritage Davis, age 64 of Ormond Beach, Florida, passed away unexpectedly Saturday, November 19, 2022 at AdventHealth Hospital in Daytona Beach, Florida surrounded by her loving family.

Ruth worked as a high school Math Teacher and retired in 2011.  She had a Master’s Degree in Education from University of North Jacksonville, made a career out of educating others, and was a lifetime learner.  She served in multiple volunteer positions and always found time in her busy schedule to find a new opportunity to help the less fortunate; so much so that in honor of her wishes, she was received as a full body organ donor at the time of her death. Ruth’s many talents included crocheting, needle point, and remodeling homes with her husband.  She loved nature, and the Grand Canyon was her favorite place to visit; she hiked the Canyon rim to rim twice, and it was on her bucket list to hike again.

She served in multiple volunteer positions and always found time in her busy schedule to find a new opportunity to help the less fortunate...

Ruth was born in Camden, New Jersey to the late Charles and Thelma Berger Heritage and was a longtime resident of Glassboro. She is preceded in death by a sister, Catherine Heritage, and husband, Leopoldo Perez.

She cherished her family and is survived by her husband, Greg Davis; a sister, Suzanne Madanat; daughters Virginia DeRoma and husband, Christopher, Alexis Perez, Sara Murry and husband, Patrick; and a son, Manuel Perez.  Ruth is also survived by her two grandsons, Leonardo DeRoma and William Murry, whom she adored.

Graveside services were held at 11:00 am November 28, 2022 at the Hanging Dog Baptist Church Cemetery, with the Reverend Eddis Dockery officiating.  Pallbearers were J.B. Reeves, Jerome Dockery, Max O’Dell, Rex Davis, Manuel Perez, and Patrick Murphy.  Honorary pallbearer was Greg Davis.
