     Gerry Davies

The Providence Journal
April 30, 2010

DAVIES, GERALD ANDREW, 52, formerly of Blacksburg, Va., and a resident of Providence, R.I., died April 27 of cancer at Memorial Hospital in Pawtucket.

A native of New Jersey, Gerry was a 1980 journalism alumnus of Ohio Wesleyan University, and a longtime newspaperman. He was known for his generosity, intelligence, wit and courage.

He is survived by his wife, The Rev. Clare Fischer-Davies, and their two children, Andy, 20, and Mary, 18 -- to whom he was devoted, and with whom he shared his best and worst days. His father, Robert Davies, and three brothers, Rob, Glenn and Eric, all of New Jersey, also survive. His mother, Theresa is deceased.

Following the example of his favorite newspaper columnist, the late William Safire of the New York Times, Davies cultivated his 'own constituency of the infuriated' in and around Blacksburg through his weekly Roanoke Times column, in which he took on beauty pageants, sewer plans, elections and other local dramas.

In all, he worked at the Times from 1994 to 2005 and served as a copy editor, layout editor, business editor, metro editor and finally, editorial writer and columnist.

He previously worked at the Toledo Blade and the Detroit Free Press and, until cancer treatment forced him to stop work, was employed as communications director for the Manufacturing Jewelers and Suppliers Association.

A proud Irish-American, Davies loved good whiskey and was fond of serenading his Roanoke Times coworkers and the customers of nearby businesses with his bagpipe playing on afternoon breaks from work.

Gerry also loved to work with his hands, and after acquiring a used table saw, once nearly cut his thumb in half -- a story he related in a column titled, 'I fought the saw, and the saw won.'
A Requiem Holy Eucharist for Gerry will be held Friday at 7 p.m. at St. Martin's in Providence. A funeral service and interment of his ashes are planned next month at Christ Episcopal Church in Blacksburg. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Mental Health Association of the New River Valley, 303 Church Street, Blacksburg, VA 24060 or, to Episcopal Relief and Development, P.O. Box 7058, Merrifield, VA 22116-7058. Condolences may be left at

Courier Post
August 15, 2007


(nee McCloskey) on August 10, 2007, Dad's birthday, of Brigantine, NJ.  Formerly of Magnolia, NJ.  Age 83 years.
Beloved wife of 59 years of the late Valdo Zannoni (Deceased Feb.15,2007).  Devoted mother of Diane Zannoni (Ed McKenna) of Hartford, CT., Steven (Margaret) Zannoni of Annapolis, MD., Joseph Zannoni of Hamilton, NJ., Kathy Zannoni (Gary) Leatherman of Monrovia, MD., Dennis (Carolyn) Zannoni of Ewing, NJ, and Maureen (Cris) Vaccaro of Berlin, NJ.  Dear sister of the late Lillian Snyder.  Proud grandmother of Christopher and David Vaccaro, Colin and Ava Zannoni, and Amanda and Brandon Leatherman.
Evelyn was born in Camden, graduating from Camden Catholic High School in 1942.  Evelyn worked briefly at RCA before knocking Valdo off a ladder, falling in love, and having six children.  Through her children, Evelyn blossomed.  With friends in Magnolia, the Magnolia Rams and the concession area formed.  She was president of the PTA at Camden Catholic for many years, organizing volunteers, fundraisers, and the wonderful carnivals.  All six of her children, and two grandchildren, attended Camden Catholic.  Evelyn was devoted to her children and her very close friends.  We are sad that she leaves behind Tessie, Marie, Fran, Mary, Kathy and Audrey, whom she loved dearly and spoke about daily.  Her life would not have been as full, if not for her friends.  We thank you for the love and friendship you gave our mother. Evelyn's mother, Nana, always had company and family in their home.  Evelyn not only grew up with her sister, Lillian, but with Don and Anna Mae.  She loved her Mom and Dad dearly, and valued and cherished their loving home.  A truly loving home is what Evelyn created for her children.  She relished the love of her family, and was truly giving to many people.  She loved to laugh.  She loved music and dancing with Valdo especially at the Three Baker's.  Evelyn spent every summer with the children at their home in Brigantine.  Being on the beach every day, and filling the day with trips, activities, and learning brought Evelyn joy.  The yearly Fourth of July parties, with many guests and games, were memorable.  Evelyn also brought musicals and music into the home.  Cooking large quantities of food, especially for her growing boys, was her favorite pastime.  Her love of sports and appreciation and joy of family has been valued and carried on through the family.  Evelyn and Valdo enjoyed and attended every Camden Catholic football, basketball, and baseball game of their children.  They continued their support of family, and the happiness shared, by attending their grandchildren's events from Camden Catholic soccer and baseball, to Haddon Heights American Legion Nationals.  As her children married, Evelyn was brought great joy in knowing they were happy and loved.  Evelyn recently attended the wedding of her first grandchild, Christopher, and carries that beautiful memory with her as she joins Valdo.
Evelyn enjoyed her trips to Europe, especially Ireland.  For over fifty years, she helped Valdo operate E-Z Silk Screening in Magnolia, NJ. Evelyn was happiest when with her children and grandchildren at the many family gatherings.  She was loved and will be deeply missed.
Relatives and friends are invited to attend her viewing Thursday morning, August 16, 9:30 AM-10:30 AM, at the COSTANTINO FUNERAL HOME 231 W. White Horse Pk, Berlin, NJ Costantinofuneral

   Craig Frates, September 20, 1957 - February 9, 1990



     Sister Mary Agnes Keeley  died on December 15, 1987, was a former teacher in the Foreign Language Department.


     Sister Joan Companick died in 1986, was a former teacher in both the Social  Science and Foreign Language Departments.  There are scholarships in her honor at both Holy Cross High School and Bishop Eustace High School.  In addition, Holy Cross has an annual golf tournament in her name.  I contacted Holy Cross for information on her death and its Development Director, Beth Coyle, was kind enough to send me the school's brochure on the Sister Joan Companick Scholarship Fund.  The following information was copied directly from that brochure:

    Sister Joan Companick was born and educated in Trenton, New Jersey. A natural athlete, she played every sport open to girls in the 1950’s while maintaining a high academic record at Cathedral High School, Trenton.
    In 1953 she entered the Sisters of Mercy in North Plainfield and was assigned to teach in grammar schools in Collingswood and later Atlantic City. She was sent to Phillipsburg Catholic High School in 1965 where she returned to sports as a basketball coach. In 1968 Sister was assigned to Camden Catholic High School. Sister turned to officiating basketball, hockey, softball and lacrosse.
    Sister Joan saw a need for organized sports programs for students of grammar school age and in CYO groups. She worked tirelessly to ensure that girls in all levels were given opportunities and recognition for their successes.
    In 1981 Sister Joan began a battle with cancer. Forced to give up teaching for a year, she returned as Guidance Counselor at Holy Cross High School in 1983. With characteristic enthusiasm and remarkable energy, she quickly got involved in all aspects of the school, directly supporting, encouraging and being a friend to all. Sister became Guidance Director in 1984.
    Her death in 1986 cut short a life of dedicated service, but she is remembered by all who were privileged to know her and know about her.
