SPRINGVALE – Patricia Davis, 58, of Springvale, died Tuesday March 21, 2023 in Rye, N.H. after a long illness.

She was born Sept. 11, 1964 in New London, N.H., the daughter of Daniel and Joan (Leach) Davis.

Patti’s family moved to Sanford in 1966 and she attended Sanford Schools, graduating from Sanford High School in 1982. Patti’s love of flowers, led her to attend the State University of New York, Alfred, graduating in 1985 with a degree in Applied Science with a major in Floraculture Merchandising. After working in the Portland area, Patti started her own business in Springvale, known as Springvale Flowers, where she flourished and continued operating the business until her health forced her to retire.

Patti enjoyed being at home and tending to her spacious gardens. She was happiest when she was working with her plants and flowers whether she was working or at home tending her own. She also enjoyed cooking and spending time with her pets. She spent a lot of time with her lifetime partner, Cory, fishing and doing things around the house. She loved spending hours on the phone with her friends and family. Patti’s biggest attribute is that she always saw the good in people.

Patti was predeceased by her parents. She is survived by her companion, Cory Crystal; her sisters, Kathi Davis Worster and her husband Tom of Shapleigh and Linda Davis Levesque and her husband Paul of Acton, her brother, Danny Davis and his wife Michelle of Sanford; as well as several nieces and nephews.
