Theora Standage Davis

10/30/1931 - 10/03/2020

Theora Jarvis Standage Davis passed away in the early hours of Saturday, October 3, 2020. She was born in St. Johns, Arizona on October 30, 1931. She moved to Mesa, Arizona, at the age of 13 where she met and married Marvin Standage, and lived there the rest of her life. A faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, she served many years teaching youth classes in Mesa Seventh Ward, where she also served as president of the ward Primary and as a counselor in the Relief Society. In the Mesa South Stake she served again as a counselor in the Relief Society Presidency. In her later years she served as an ordinance worker for 15 years in the Mesa Arizona Temple. She is remembered by many as being very happy and engaging, quick to laugh, loving, and giving. She shared generously from her kitchen. She took fudge to her doctors, pharmacist, and dentist. For her friends and neighbors she often shared her famous cinnamon rolls. Her extended family remembers many more delicious dishes and treats. She was generous also in sharing her sewing and quilting handiworks. She loved and encouraged her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren, and they loved her. She was preceded in death by her first and second husbands, Marvin Standage and Ted Davis. She is survived by her children Marvin Gary Standage (Marsha), Steve Standage (Karla), Janet (Charles) Billingsley, Cathy (Marvin) Dees, and Lesa (Eric) Gustafson, 20 grandchildren, and 32 great grandchildren. Due to Covid restrictions, Theora’s funeral service will be limited to her family.
