Elizabeth Jane Chandler Davis died on Thursday, March 1, 2018. She was born on August 12, 1941 in Albemarle, North Carolina to Vivian and Aubrey Chandler. She was married to the late Donald P. Davis and was the mother of Elizabeth Davis and Christopher Davis. Surviving are her grandsons, Hunter Davis, Luke Davis and Jared Davis. She is also survived by her sister, Susan Taylor.
Jane studied French at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro and earned her Master’s degree at Appalachian State University. She had an important impact on her community as a teacher for more than thirty years, where she taught French and English at North Stanly High School. Jane was not only a teacher, but practiced lifelong learning. She was a voracious reader, her entire life. She participated in a book club and also served as President of Stanly County Friends of the Library for a number of years.
Jane had a great interest in the world around her and loved traveling extensively across four continents, North America, Africa, Asia and Europe. She climbed the Great Wall in China, rode a camel in Egypt, and saw the ancient sites of Greece and Italy. She never passed up an opportunity to travel.
Jane touched the community in many ways. She had unlimited compassion and generosity for other people and for animals. She quietly contributed all kinds of help to anyone in need. One of her favorite Christmas events was shopping for Angel Tree gifts. Known for her animal rescue activities, Jane never turned away a stray, but instead tried to find homes for them.
