Share this obituary

Edna Mae Davis, 72, formerly of Carrollton, passed away unexpectedly Sunday, April 11, 2021, at UPMC Presbyterian Hospital in Pittsburgh, PA, from complications of a ruptured abdominal aneurysm.

Born May 8, 1948, she was the only daughter of the late Chalmers W. and Edna P. Shotwell of Carrollton.

Being an avid bowler, Edna enjoyed the sport for many years competing in several leagues, state and national tournaments with her daughters while being a member, officer and Hall of Fame inductee in the McCook Area Bowling Association.  She worked at Carroll Lanes Restaurant for over 25 years, as well.  Eddie, as many called her, was very active in teaching the sport of bowling to many. Being a certified coach to the youth on Saturday mornings along with MRDD individuals on Friday mornings, this was one of her absolute joys.

However, the biggest joy for her was just being Gram and spending time with her grandsons.  Whether teaching them to bowl, watching them play soccer and basketball or just sitting on the couch trying to play video games with them, she truly loved it all.  Jordan and Dom were definitely the highlights of her life!

Edna is survived by daughters, Lisa Davis (Christie Campbell) of Columbus and Crystal Davis of Carrollton; grandsons, Jordan Koons of Minerva and Domanic Zrinyi and his dad, Victor of Wintersville; and brother, George (Bobbi) Shotwell of Winchester, VA. 

She was preceded in death by brothers John, Dick and Roy. 

Edna will surely be missed by family and many friends.

Calling hours will be held Thursday, April 15, from 4-7 p.m. at Alllmon Duggar Cotton Funeral Home.  A memorial service will be held April 16 at 11 a.m. at the funeral home. Burial will follow in Westview Cemetery in Carrollton.
