Catherine May Jones Davenport passed away peacefully Thursday evening, May 28, 2020, at the Bloomsburg Care and Rehabilitation Center, where she was a resident with her husband, Richard.
Cathy was born on May 25, 1933, in Nanticoke, PA, the daughter of Ellis Jones and Dorothy Graham Jones Siebecker. She married the love of her life, Richard Henry Davenport of Plymouth Township, PA, on July 25, 1953. They were the parents of six children.
She graduated from Nanticoke High School in 1951. Cathy worked several jobs during her working years, including the Nanticoke Police force, Bell Telephone Company, and the Berwick Hospital.

She was preceded in death by her parents and her daughter, Laurel Lee Rinehimer, her grandson Charles Hopper, her great-grandson Travis Potter, and her sweet Rusty.
Cathy is survived by her husband Richard, her daughter Dotty Hopper with her husband Terry of Berwick, and her four sons, Richard with his husband Russell of State College, William with his wife Sally of Berwick, Thomas of Millville, and John of Berwick.
