Diane O’Dell Davis, 70, of Lee’s Summit died June 28th 2021 at KU Med Center.
A Celebration of Life will be at 2:00 pm Saturday, July 10, 2021 at Liberty Christian Church, Liberty, Missouri. Visitation will be prior to service from 1:00 – 2:00. Diane requested a celebration of her life so business casual attire is appropriate.
Diane was born September 21, 1950 in Independence, MO to Howard and Vivian O’Dell. She graduated from Liberty High School before graduating from Baker University in Baldwin City, KS. In 1974 she married Mike Davis.
Diane was in advertising sales, a member of Liberty Soroptimist, and a Cub Scout den leader. She and Mike enjoyed playing bridge, traveling, and greatly enjoyed camping. Diane traveled with family and friends throughout all 50 states plus numerous countries. She was a devoted wife, mother, and grandma. Family came first and was above all else to Diane, a value she instilled in all those around her. The hole left by her absence is impossible to fill.
She is preceded in death by her father, Howard O’Dell, and her brother, Scott O’Dell.
Survivors include her husband of 46 years, Mike Davis; her two sons Brandon (Melissa) Davis and Spencer (Mary) Davis all of Lee’s Summit, MO; her grandchildren Lydia, Eve, Kyler, and Eli; her mother Vivian O’Dell and brother Dan (Wanda) O’Dell, both of Liberty; her best friends Martha, Ellen, and Lynne and her two brothers-in-law, Dennis Davis and Jerry Davis.
