Sadye Pittard Davenport

Sadye Pittard Davenport passed away Aug. 30, 2017.

Born in 1927 in Cedar Grove, N.C., she was the sixth of eight children born to Fannie and Fletcher Pittard. She was married over 50 years to Ralph L. Davenport.

She is survived by her daughters, Cynthia and husband, Bob, of San Diego, Calif .; and Dawn and husband, Peter, of Brevard; grandchildren, Cait, Hays, Wells and Leah Johnson, and Mauri Sysko; sisters, Marianne Kimbro and Carolyn (Billie) Roberts; and many nieces and nephews.

She loved Hiking in these beautiful mountains and reminded us frequently that we live in paradise. She loved golf (on most days), gourmet meals and teaching exercise. She loved a good challenging discussion, reading a good book and learning new things.

She loved her daughters and her sons-in-law, whom she considered the sons she never had. And she especially loved her five grandchildren, who were all perfect in her eyes.

A memorial service will be held Saturday, Sept. 9, 2017, at 1 p.m. at the chapel at First Methodist Church.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Transylvania County Library Foundation, 212 South Gaston St., Brevard, NC 28712.
