Florence K. Davis (Kandy), 95, passed away on April 3, 2023 at Showalter, Warm Hearth Village. She was born June 24,1927 in Newark, N.J. to Isabelle and Oscar Kreitler.
Kandy grew up in Millburn, N.J. and attended Bucknell University, where she met her husband of 66 years, Walter M. Davis.
Walter and Kandy lived in Stuyvesant Town, N.Y., Glen Cove, N.Y. and Blacksburg.
After raising her four children, Kandy worked as an accountant at Long Island Lutheran High School in Brookville, N.Y. When she retired from LuHi, she became a travel agent. During this time, she and Walter enjoyed traveling all over the world.
Kandy loved being with and meeting new people. She was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church, when she lived in Glen Cove, and Blacksburg Christian Fellowship when in Blacksburg. Kandy was involved with various social groups through the years and was part of the Blacksburg Newcomers, well after she was no longer a “newcomer”.
