Onilee “Lee” Hope Davie, 85, of Battle Creek passed away on May 3, 2020 at the home of her daughter and son-in-law surrounded by her family. Lee was born on February 17, 1935 in Petrolia, Canada, the daughter of George and Missle Thomas. Lee worked at Delton Kellogg Schools in the Superintendent and Elementary office for 22 years before retiring in 1997. On August 24, 1960 she married Edward Joseph Davie in Lincoln Park, Michigan.
She is survived by her son Carl (Nena) Phee of Wyoming, MI; daughter Onilee (Timothy) O’Meara of Battle Creek, MI; son Thomas (Elaine) Phee of Norton Shores, MI and daughter Renee (Kevin) Wakefield of Ohio; grandchildren Tammy (Bill) Duff, Stacie Phee (Bryan Maas), Timberlee (John) Sebright, Richard (Marci) Phee, Sheyanne (Derek) LaCaze, and Robin (Jason) Heeres; great-grandchildren Hayden Duff, Brendan Duff, Tyler Sebright, Caleb Sebright, Bayleigh Sebright, Charlie Phee, Alice Phee, Aiden Heeres and Will Heeres; special friends Robin Frohlich and Faith Greer; and many in-laws and many friends.
Lee enjoyed gardening and tending to her yard. She was a talented sewer who loved to make blankets and clothes. She enjoyed to cross-stitch and crochet. She was very devoted to her family and loved to attend her grandchildren and great-grandchildren’s events. She truly enjoyed granny sitting her “greats” as she called them. She loved going on mother/daughter adventures. She enjoyed traveling to Hawaii and Las Vegas and going on cruises. She was loved by all and will be truly missed.
Lee is preceded in death by her husband Edward Davie and her parents.

Dear Onie & Family:
Edouardo and I send our deepest condolences in the passing of our sweet friend Lee. Every time we would come down from Montreal and we passed Petrolia we would blow a kiss to Lee. Lee gave me the skinny on Petrolia in our many talks about her childhood.
I'm so very thankful that Lee came into my life and that we could enjoy her friendship for almost 15 years.
I think it's been about four years back that Lee quilted me a beautiful guilt which I use every day. Her smile
was so welcoming when we went to visit her while we were home for the summer.
I will miss seeing Lee and catching up with her life there in Battle Creek.
Thank you Onie for calling me and letting me know about Lee's passing.
